Reminder - Groton Center on Friday

Dear AdventuRiders,

We were freezing last Wednesday on the North Shore and now its going to be HOT. Actually its going to be a "dry heat" with relatively low humidity.

So I have planned two rides that will be mostly shady and with potential wet stops.

The morning fitness ride will stop at KTR Motorsports (if I hear back from them), the Storybook House, Shirley Center, West Groton, and Fitch Bridge. 

The afternoon recreation ride will be really lazy and use the Fitch Bridge to get to the other side of the river on our was to East Pepperell Center. If necessary :-) we can jump into the  Nissitissit River and then check out the covered bridge and the Prudence Wright memorial. Then we can cruise the NRRT back to Groton.
