This Week - MeadowBrook - TBD - Lunenburg?

Dear AdventuRiders,

Monday looks SUNNY but COLD. It was snowing when I scouted out the route today. It should be mid 30s when we leave and mid 40s when we return. At least is not supposed to be windy. DRESS WARMLY.

We will start at Meadowbrook Orchards in Sterling. They have breakfast, coffee, donuts, PORCELAIN, lunch, and take home goodies, everything a biker could want! And its WARM inside.

The Morning Recreation Ride will zip over to the Wachusett Dam, then ride along the Nashua River before turning UP to Lancaster. The foliage in Lancaster is spectacular and the route takes us by some nice farms and woods before returning to Meadowbrook.

The Afternoon Fitness Ride will go to the Old Stone Church on Wachusett Reservoir where I had trouble getting through all the photographers today. It's seriously beautiful. Then we will ride to Sterling on the MCRT and then down the wide shoulder of Route 62 back to Meadowbrook.
