Adventurides - October 24, 26, 28

This Week:  Gardner - Groton - Hudson 

On Monday, October 24 - Gardner,Baldwinville,Winchendon - 10AM
Joel will lead us on this new Fearless Leader Choice Ride : "The ride starts out on a short bike trail that leads into Gardner.  After a few city streets it's off to more country roads.  The "adventure" part of the ride is on dirt roads that lead to the Birch Hill Dam on the Miller's River in South Royalston.  The ride passes by Lake Dennison, a popular State park.  Much of the 25 or so miles are on the paved sections of the North Central Pathway. I found a nice restaurant just off the trail called The River's Edge in Winchendon.  Breakfasts are served all day.  Portions are large.  They do not take credit cards."
