Hi I'm Tom. I used to do a lot of bike touring about 10 years ago. I still have all the equipment and would love an opportunity to do some weekend touring in New England.

What do you hope to get from this group?

I enjoy meeting people with similar interests.

We offer mostly day rides in the Boston area and further afield with a few weekend or multi-day trips. What type of rides are you most interested in?

I used to do a lot of bike touring about 10 years ago. However in recent years, my interest has shifted more toward hiking. I did several extended tours. The longest was a 17 day self-contained trip from Seattle to San Francisco.

Would you be interested in longer distance touring with other group members?

I would love to do some weekend bike touring around New England

    Hope the hike went well. I waited until 12:30 on the summit, thinking I'd say hi and use your trail for the return. I assume you used my trail returning on the N. Moat Trail. It was magnificent when we got above the clouds. Thanks for the idea. I'm sorry I got there so late - messed up on my directions.

    Hi Tom,

    I was wondering if you might be allowing anyone from the waiting list to attend the hike on Saturday?

    Hi Tom,

    Really enjoyed the hike today! Thanks. Hope to see you on the trail again soon.
    But I did have a tick on me from walking in the tall grass in case you want to send a note to everyone to remind them to check.

    I will have my kayak. The lake is a short walk down a path. I paddled last year. I will be the woman with the french bull dog.
    I will be arriving Saturday morning.

    Hi Tom. I was hoping you could share that Thai Chicken in a dutch oven recipe from the pot luck this past weekend. Can you you send it to [masked]?
