This is yet another great ride that covers almost all of the pleasant biking roads in Brownfield, Maine. Starting out of the Maine Visitor's Center, the ride goes south on Haleytown Road, then turns left on Hampshire and goes into the village of Brownfield, bearing left onto Main Street, Route 160. Cross Route 5, staying on Route 160,  and cross the Saco River. Bear left to go up Lord's Hill Road, enjoy some views, enjoy the downhill, then right onto Rocky Knoll where you will do a few short but energetic hills. Return by Route 160 and then Pig Street for some nice flat riding.  Heading back on 160 and then Hampshire, bear left on good pavement to Sam Brown's Hill for more good views, a nice downhill and pleasant riding back on Hampshire and Haleytown.

Start at the Maine Visitors Center on Route 302, just over the border in Fryeburg, Maine.

Ready to ride at 9:00 am

Distance 32 miles. Many shorter options are possible!

FridayBike, Friday, July 20th:
I will not be able to join you all this Thursday ... but I can ride on FRIDAY.
Join me for "The Andover Ride". it is a fantastic 50 miler (I need the training miles!) starting from the riverside park in Bethel, Maine (where we enjoy lunch on the North Road ride). Ready to ride up there at 9:00 am.  Let me know if you will be there:  email:  marianneborowski@yahoo.com. If there are enough interested we can arrange carpools from the JacksonXC lot.
