Activity: Road ride, 43, 63 or 84 miles Location: Robert E. Melican Middle School, 145 Lincoln St., Northboro Time: 10:00 a.m. Leader: Mike Cavaretta, firstname.lastname@example.org, 774-275-4708
This is an interclub ride with Charles River Wheelmen and Nashoba Valley Pedalers.
The ride leader calls this ride Frankenstein (pronounced Fronk-en-steen)
because it's stitched together from parts of several of his favorite rides,
and because it has some monster climbs. While it's true that this ride has an Abby Normal amount
of climbing, it features beautiful vistas, quiet country roads and long smooth descents, including a
4-mile coast to the finish. All three routes circumnavigate Wachusett Reservoir. The 63-miler and the
84-miler include a loop through the Harvard hills. And the 85-miler adds a segment to the summit of Mount
Wachusett. Afterward, socializing and refueling will be at LaLaJava coffee house, 290 West Main St.,
Northboro. So warm up your legs, put some chamois cream on your schwanzstucker, and join us
as we ascend to the heavens!
These are easy-paced Saturday or Sunday rides led by club member Dick Goodman. Time and location varies. Rarely over 35 miles, and Dick doesn't go looking for hills. Check www.easycrider.com each week for the lowdown. Usually the weekend plan is online by Thursday night. Dick discourages phone calls but can be reached at email@example.com and requests RSVP by 10 p.m. Friday, via e-mail or Facebook group, so he knows who's coming.
If you want company when you bike, e-mail your plan (time, date, place, activity) to LTolman@LTolman.org and Lynne will forward it to everyone in the club. It’s best to contact Lynne by noontime Thursday for weekend activities.
