    Friday daytime ride?

    Anyone up for a late-morning ride at Russell Mill tomorrow? I picked a great week for a staycation & plan on hitting the trails between 10 & 10:30.

      So week 1 was a bit damp-ish...still, no one was excused. We did get several miles in before the re-carb. Weather for this week's ride will be more cooperative, so come on out to Russell Mill for a ride.

      Pace: Early season, week 2, still no beat downs and plenty of stops/bail out points.
      Distance: 8 - 18 miles...or whatever

          Friday Update, March 30, 2012

          The foray to GBF is on again this week. Riders looking for a shorter ride are still welcome as there are many spots to bail - never more than a mile from the parking area. Let’s get crankin’!

          Times: 5pm - warm up & 6pm - more warm up

          Distance: 8 - 18 miles...or whatever

                  Do not be the superstitious kind.
                  Come out to the ‘Mill’ for Friday’s grind.
                  Get those bad luck notions off your mind
                  And spin those freakin’ cranks til you unwind

                              Come out to the Mill this Friday and ride.
                              The weather’s too nice to be home like a clyde.
                              The pace will be lively, not dull or mundane
                              With so many drops, like you jumped from a plane.

                              A bit of road work, and we’re in the next town.
                              We’ll have to take North, to avoid us a clown.
                              Last week was no joke. T’was not even funny,
                              when he told us ‘Get out! You can’t ride thru here sonny!’

                              It was over so fast, I thought it a joke.
                              Til the sweeper had said: ‘What a fussy old bloke.’
                              So I guess we can’t ride down that unnamed old road,
                              We’ll take the next right…what the heck, same zip code.

                              Times: 5pm - warm up & 6pm - RM & beyond
                              Place: Russell Mill Town Forest, Chelmsford, MA 01824

                              Pace: Week 11 intermediate pace, no turning back unless you break.
                              Distance: up to 20 miles - no fooling.


                              * NOTE: DPU’s…just in case
