This Week - Memorial Day - WEsTford - Sterling

Dear AdventuRiders,

I hope you're have a GREAT Memorial Day weekend. There are no rides on Monday though :-(

You may have noticed the strange capitalization of Wednesday's ride location. Well, its supposed to be 92 degrees, so we will do a ride starting at Forge Pond with numerous opportunities to jump into various water bodies to cool off. Hence, we will put the WET in Westford. In addition to Forge Pond we will stop at pristine Burgess Pond, Nabnassett Pond, and perhaps Salmon Brook.

Friday looks to be cooler with possible wetness falling from the sky, but its too early to take the forecast seriously. Anyhow we will start at Meadowbrook Orchards in Sterling. They have coffee, donuts, PORCELAIN, lunch, everything a biker could want! The rides aren't fully cooked yet, but the Wachusett Dam and Mass Centrail Rail Trail are on menu.
