With warm temperatures and the busy, trafficy roads full of pre-Labor Day vacationers, the North Road to Bethel ride is a shady, quiet alternative.
I cannot be with you on this Thursday, but I am sure that one of you (?) will take on the role of host and welcome a new rider who will be joining in on this ride!
Meet at the North Road starting point, in the parking area at the intersection of North Road and Hogan Road, north of the dam. Get there by driving north on Route 16 to Gorham, take a right onto Route 2, go about 3 miles looking for the big beautiful stone house on the left. After the stone house, take a left onto North Road. Cross the Androscoggin River at the dam and head up a short distance. Where the road bears hard right, you go left into the parking area on the dirt Hogan Road.
Ready to Ride at 9:00 am.
Bring a lunch or snacks to enjoy at the riverside park in Bethel.
Total distance: About 39 miles
