4/28 Saturday Ride

We're continuing along with our series of rides geared to get people prepared for the CCCP Memorial Day ride over in the White Mountains.

This week we will head out on a tour of Yarmouth, New Gloucester and Falmouth (MapMyRide route). For those not interested in doing the full 52 miles, we will also have a short route that will head through Cumberland (MapMyRide route).

Given the distance we will leave the shop at the "usual" 8:00 am start time.

If you have any questions, comments or complaints, please use the comments option or drop me an email.

4/21 Saturday Ride


We're getting less confident that the ride will stay dry on Saturday, so we have decided to change the route a bit.

The new plan is to head out Middle Rd., up Tuttle, catch Dutton Hill, and then follow the rest of the original route (MapMyRide route). This change will keep the distance almost identical, but will provide us with several additional options for shortening the ride if the weather decides not to cooperate.

We'll still plan to leave the shop at 8:00 am.


After watching the weather all week, it looks like the conditions for this week's ride could go either way. By all accounts, the best chance of a dry ride will be early in the day and the temps should be fairly steady, so we will plan to leave the shop at 8:00 am.

For now, we will plan on doing the planned route out through Falmouth, Cumberland and Yarmouth (MapMyRide route). However, we may shorten things up depending on the weather.

For those looking to do the shorter loop, we are planning to follow the same track as last week (MapMyRide route).

As always, if you have any questions or comments, please drop me an email.

4/14 Saturday Ride

It's that time of year again. Once again, we have put together a progression of rides that we hope will help people prepare for the CCCP Memorial Day ride on May 28.

For some reason, it feels like we don't have much time this year, so this first week or two are a bit of a stretch over the distance we have been riding. If we stick together and ride as a group, we are confident that these distances will be reasonable, so please stick together and ride as a group—especially this next week or two.

This week's ride will tour Falmouth, Yarmouth and Cumberland (MapMyRide route).

We will also have a shorter ride for people that don't want, or don't have time, to go the full distance (MapMyRide route). The full group will stay together until Mountain Rd. and then split. Also, a huge thank you to Christine for helping us out by leading the shorter loop.

As for start time, we are going to head out from the shop at 8:30am. This seems like the best compromise between letting things warm up and making sure we get back at a reasonable time.

As I mentioned this week is the first in a series of rides designed to help people prepare for the CCCP Memorial Day ride. The rest of the schedule looks like this:
If you have any questions about the ride, if you want to give me your feedback on the proposed routes, or if you are willing to help us out as a leader, please drop me an email.

4/7 Saturday Ride

It doesn't look like there will be much warmup tomorrow morning, but we'll leave a little bit late to give the sun a chance to warm things up a touch. Plan to leave the shop at 9:00.

This week we'll head out through Falmouth and Cumberland (MapMyRide route).
