Reminder - UPDATE - Meadowbrook Orchards on Friday

Dear AdventuRiders,

Friday looks to be a delightful day with temps in the 70s and low humidity. We will start at Meadowbrook Orchards in Sterling. They have breakfast, coffee, donuts, PORCELAIN, lunch, and take home goodies, everything a biker could want! 

The Morning Fitness Ride will zip over to Sterling on the wide shoulder of Route 62. We can admire the "Mary Had A Little Lamb" statue before enjoying the Mass Central Rail Trail. After a stop at the Old Stone Church, we will go UP and over Kendall Hill with a stop at East Waushacum Pond (we've never been there before). NOTE: This is a bit more difficult than our normal Fitness Rides, so we will need to keep moving.

The Afternoon Recreation Ride will go to the Wachusett Reservoir and Dam in Clinton, one of the wonders of the 19th century, and then on to George's Hill in Lancaster. The hill back UP to Meadowbrook is no fun, but they put orchards at the top of the hill for a reason...
