Anyone still want to ride?

How about a short, close to home ride? It is hard to put the bike away when we can't ski.

West Side Road - Passaconaway Road

Start at the public parking lot behind the Eastern Slope Inn.

Ready to Ride at 11:00 am

About 22 miles to the Albany Covered Bridge and back, 25 miles round trip to Lower Falls on the Kanc.

Ride Cancelled for Thursday, November 10th

So its back to the rain on Thursday routine.

Oh well, not a problem. We certainly have had good weather for a long time -- since the snowstorm! Everyone has probably been outside everyday biking, hiking, hauling and stacking wood, raking, garden clean-up -it's time for a day off!

Check the Velo club blog - the weather may be good for a ride on Saturday or Sunday!

Conway Village, Kanc and Passaconaway Loop 10:30am

THURSDAY, November 3rd, 2011

Yeah, here we go November - looks like the ThursdayBike can ride again!!

OK, so let's do an easy fun ride to get the ThursdayBikers back in the saddle!!

Start in Conway Village, at the parking lot behind the bank at the corner of Route 16 and Route 153 - behind Mountain Center Physical Therapy. Ready to ride at 10:30 am.

We ride out of the parking lot across the river on a footbridge then on the south side of Pequaket Pond. There is a short section (0.2 mile) of walkable dirt road, then cross over to Route 16 for a short ride to the Kanc. We can ride up the Kanc as far as we like - perhaps to the Covered Bridge, maybe to Lower Falls or Rocky Gorge - riders can decide depending on temperature. There should be very little traffic! The return is that great ride down Passaconway Road, then to West Side Road back to the parking lot.

Distance? Could be 23 miles, or 25 miles or 29 miles depending on how far up the Kanc we go.
Bring lunch or snacks. A headband or lightweight skullcap is useful to keep the ears warm.
