New Gloucester ride this Sunday
I haven't ridden there but, I'm going to check it out. Sunday, 8/27 @ Noon
"Directions: from Gray center (which is north of Portland, right off the Gray turnpike exit) go exactly 4 miles north on 202 100 Auburn Rd in the direction of the Cumberland farms. We will be meeting at the powerlines on the left next to the Bible Church. From Lewiston/Auburn you can take 202 100 south and around 5 miles after the frozen custard place, it'll be on the right- all experienced riders of any ability welcome. The terrain can get a little technical in areas, with narrow rock bridges and such. Also, I should mention that a decent 2:1-ish sser would do fine in the direction I ride the course. The closest intersecting road is Jack Hall Road if that helps. Hope to see some enthusiastic mtbers! Later."

Thanks to Nick for hosting today’s ride. There were 13 (I think) of us. The trails are nice with varied terrain. They are fairly fresh and soft. They will improve with more riding.
