Middleborough Cranberry Cruise
BICYCLINGDate: Sat November 2, 2013
Please join us for a 40 mile ride through the farms, fields and cranberry bogs of Middleborough starting at 11:00 AM. Middleborough was once called the "shoe capital of the world". It is still home to the Alden Shoe Company, one of the last remaining shoe manufacturers in America. Middleborough has since become the cranberry capital of the world, hosting the corporate headquarters of Ocean Spray Cranberries. This is an Appalachian Mountain Club sponsored event and registration is required and is limited to 24 participants. You must be able to maintain a 12 to 14 MPH pace for what is pretty much flat terrain. Please make sure you have a spare tube, helmet and layers to keep warm. You will also want to pack a lunch.
