9/27 Saturday Ride

I need a ride, folks!

I'm thinking, since there's been an awful lot of going north recently, maybe west is in order: either Mitchell Hill or this lovely, bucolic variation on one of Bruce's themes. I altered the course to follow the river a little more--let me know if that's a bad idea, Bruce!

After Labor Day, we'll fit in the Saco ride. Also, we should be able to go up to Boothbay and enjoy some coastal fall color.

8/20 Saturday Ride

Theresa and Jerry didn't get to do the extra loop past Pinelands last week and they want another swing, so we'll repost the 51-mile, five-Cat-5-climb Pinelands Plus loop from last week. If you create a critical mass block and out-vote them (or beat them fair and square arm wrestling), I'm sure they'll be reasonable.

8/13 Saturday Ride

It's the Bike MS weekend so I will be down in Biddeford putting in 175 miles over the next two days. Theresa and Jerry are training for a European trip, however, and they want some hills, so how about this one? It's 51 miles with the unusual (but pretty) way home via Elmwood/Hodsdon, but that can be shortened by going our typical 231 to Greely or Tuttle. There's an optional 10 mile loop and two extra Cat 5s after Pinelands including Gloucester Hill and Penney Road (total 3731 ft and 5 Cat 5s).

The rain should hold off until the afternoon, but be prepared.
