Anyone for a mid November bike ride? 11:00 am

Thursday, November 21, 2013

The weather looks like a reasonable mid November day, with sunshine, mid 40's and no wind.  I cannot join in on a ride with you in NH this week, but I am trying to get a ride in CT with these milder temperatures forecasted.

I HAVE to post a ride, as ThursdayBike must always carry on until the XC skis come out!!  For Thursday die-hards, how about just meeting again at the public parking lot behind the Eastern Slope Inn at 11:00 for a ride?  Choose West Side Road/Passaconaway as the satisfying basic local ride or liven it up a bit by doing a ride over to Cranmore, up Old Bartlett Road and ride out to 16A and out and back on Town Hall Road,  returning via 16A (stop to see the new Moat Brewery building next to Limmer Boots!), then returning via the scenic vista for a view of Mt. Washington.

Next week is Thanksgiving, but if the weather is good in the morning, I might post a pre-turkey dinner ride! Choose bike or ski, depending on the weather!

FridayBike, SaturdayBike

Friday, November 15 and Saturday November 16th, 2013

For those of you who want to get some more biking in this season, I am setting up two rides, taking advantage of warmer weather on Friday and Saturday. These rides are some local favorites, to start winding down the season. I decided against Thursday, as I can't ride and the weather looks better for Friday and Saturday. 

FridayBike:    West Side Road, Passaconaway and The Kanc to Lower Falls.  11:00 start. 

Meet at the parking lot behind the Eastern Slope Inn in North Conway at 11:00, ready to ride. As an option, we could bike to Conway Village and up the Kanc as far as we want then return via Passaconaway Road.   Distance between 24-30 miles. 

SaturdayBike:  Haleytown Road and Brownfield. 11:00 start

Meet at the Maine Visitor's Center on Route 302 at 11:00, ready to ride. Head out Haleytown to Hampshire to Brownfield. We could cross over route 5/113 to do the Brownfield Loop and/or do Pig Street and the Sam Brown's Hill. Add the bike path for a few more miles. We can shorten or lengthen the route depending on the weather.   Estimating 20-30 miles.

Ride Cancelled due to Rainy Forecast

Thursday, November 7, 2013

We were lucky last week to arrive back at our cars just as the rain started!
This week the forecast does not look good for a dry ride. Try again next week!!  Also, keep checking for Saturday rides, weather permitting.
