This Week - Dunstable - Gloucester - Lunenburg

Dear AdventuRiders,

After a BEAUTIFUL week of riding (and a PERFECT 5 Boro Tour in NYC), it will be hard to top. However, we are going to Dunstable on Monday, Gloucester on Wednesday, and Lunenburg on Friday. The only "fly in the ointment" is the weather on Monday, we'll do our best!

I've been trying to mix the rides up a bit because the Recreation rides sometimes miss out on the best scenery in order to keep the ride difficulty at medium. The Monday morning Recreation ride gets "the best of Dunstable" with a slightly greater level of difficulty. Believe me, it will be worth it!

The Monday afternoon Fitness ride will be the "Field of Dreams" ride with a couple of challenging hills, but GREAT views.

The Wednesday "Fearless Leader's Choice" ride will be the Gloucester to Rockport ride around the end of Cape Ann. It will be our usual ride since there aren't too many route options here, but we will ride through "1%-ville" to the Eastern Point and stop at Good Harbor Beach on our way to LUNCH in Rockport.

I haven't totally figured out the Friday rides in Lunenburg yet because ALL the lunch places (and porcelain) have closed :-(
