This spring metric century and half metric century is an interclub ride with
NASHOBA VALLEY PEDALERS -- a chance to meet and mingle with
like-minded folks practically next door. David from NVP and Gary and Dick
from 7HW developed the routes.
Meet at the Mount Wachusett Community College parking lot at Devens.
(From Route 2, take exit 37 for Jackson Road, go through the first traffic light,
and MWCC’s lot is your first left after the light.)
A tour of back roads near the New Hampshire state line. This is a joint ride with Charles River Wheelmen.
The organizers will not lead or sweep; just follow the arrows, the cue sheet, and/or the GPS files.
The rides go north through rolling terrain from Devens toward Mason, N.H. While the short ride
returns through Townsend and Groton, the longer riders tackle hillier roads north of the border
and have a rest stop at Parker's Maple Barn before returning through Brookline, N.H. (good
hill practive for the upcoming King's Tour of the Quabbin). Note that the 59-mile ride has
several significant climbs. No go if it rains or the roads are wet.
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.
