Reminder - Groton Center Tomorrow

Dear AdventuRiders,

Well, I am still in Bar Harbor, but its not as fun as it sounds. I'm dealing with movers, architects, general contractors, etc. So my lovely Vice President of Not Losing People, Carole, will be leading tomorrow's ride.

The weather is still not looking good for Friday. BTW, my phone tells me there is a Flash Flood Watch for Groton tonight. I will make the GO / STOP decision before 8:00 AM tomorrow. As usual I will send email to this list and post it on our website

The morning fitness ride will stop at 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. We will go to the Nissitissit River and then check out the covered bridge and the Prudence Wright memorial. Then we can cruise the NRRT back to Groton.
