Fryeburg Village and Menonomy Road 11:00 am

Thursday, October 31, 2013

The weather might just work for a short ride close to home. It may be cloudy, but not too cold, windy or wet. The rain should hold off until you head out for Trick or Treating.

Meet at the Maine Visitor's Center on Route 302 just over the border in Fryeburg. We start with a lap on the bike path, then go into Fryeburg Village, head over to the Snow School and Ice House Road. We cross Route 302 onto Menonomy Road, which is a very scenic out and back ride. It has short climbs that will keep us warm. On our return we could stop in Fryeburg Village for a hot coffee or tea and a pastry!

Distance?  Probably about 20 miles.

Ready to ride at 11:00 at the Maine Visitor's Center.

West Side Road/Passaconaway to Rocky Gorge 12:00 noon

Thursday, October 24, 2013

The temperature decided to drop and the winds are going to be crisp.  For the first really chilly Thursday ride it is probably best to start when the temperature has a chance to rise!  How about a high noon start, giving us the most solar warmth?  How about a local favorite, so some of us can do errands either before or after the ride? It might take digging out some cross country ski clothes for bike riding now!!

Meet in the parking lot behind the Eastern Slope Inn at 12:00 noon. We can ride out West Side Road and up Passaconaway, and at the covered bridge decide to ride further to Rocky Gorge if the sunshine feels good!

It is about 24 miles to the covered bridge and back, 30 miles if Rocky Gorge is included.

Climb Bear Notch for Foliage Views, afternoon ride 1:00 pm

Thursday, October 17, 2013

The forecasts for Thursday vary widely, but it seems like the afternoon should be good for a ride. The views from the scenic overlooks on Bear Notch Road are beautiful with the golden foliage below in Bartlett. How about a short but sweet ride up Bear Notch Road?

Meet at Attitash parking lot at 1:00 pm, ready to ride.

Total mileage is about 18.

If you prefer to stay on flatter ground and look up at Bear Notch, head out to River Road for about 11 miles.
