Castle Hill to Rock-Lobster Roll Ride -Alt. Date

  • I surrender to you Team Boston Common!!!

     

    BCCC Team,

  •  

     

    With the season slowly winding down it is time to take a trip to the North Shore and take in the splendor of the rocky shoreline and the Castle Hill Estate in Ipswich.

    I tried to make this as short as possible without us feeling like we want more but was only able to get down to 48 miles.

    My hopes are that the riders that have been nursing injuries (laura, bryan, staci, brandon etc) will be able to join us on this ride.  It looks to be somewhat of a hilly route but pace will not be an issue as we would rather take it slow and have you all with us.

    After the ride we can spend some time strolling Rockport and eating lobster somewhere!

     

    HERE IS AN ALTERNATE ROUTE FOR THE ROCK LOBSTER RIDE. IT IS 22.7 MILES AROUND THE ROCKPORT AREA.

    Hope to see you all there!!

    Sorry Pete et al, much like Damian I was shoehorning this ride into my day and waiting for weather to pass wasn't part of my schedule. Hope it clears for ya!

    October 14, 2012

  • Fred

    I'm leaving now, It better stop soon!

    October 14, 2012

  • Laura

    Pete - doesn't look to be clearing til late in the day - are you still planning to gut it out?

    October 14, 2012

  • Peter F.

    Riders, I believe there is only supposed to be an am shower then nice the rest of the day. What we have done in the past is find a cafe in the area and wait out the rain while grabbing a bite to eat. I have no reschedule date for this ride.

      Thanks Terry for organizing this. I have ridden route 127 a lot before and I was looking forward to this ride and my first Meetup. But the timing was already tight with an afternoon commitment, so I think I'll have to pass. Hope you all get a great ride in.

    If it is raining anybody who does not want to ride can wait with me until everyone returns :)

    October 13, 2012

    • Terry W.

      Bad news. We have a sickness in the house. Can't make it tomorrow. Very disappointed.

      October 14, 2012

    • Peter F.

      sorry to hear that Terry. Hope everyone is gets better soon.

      October 14, 2012

  • David J C.

    Count me in for 48 :)

    October 13, 2012

  • Erin H.

    Is there a rain plan? Are we still riding if it rains?

    October 13, 2012

  • Damian

    This sounds like fun

    October 13, 2012

  • Erin H.

    I am in for the 48!

    October 9, 2012

  • Julie P.

    More sleep = happiness. I'd be in for 48

    October 9, 2012

  • Jon R.

    @Peter & Marcie: I would prefer the 9am start too.

    October 9, 2012

  • Cem

    i am up for 48 if anyone else is interested.

    October 9, 2012

  • Peter F.

    there is a good chance I will only be doing the 22 mile loop and give the gps to someone else who wants to do the 48 miles this sunday.

    October 9, 2012

  • Peter F.

    I dont think anybody would complain if the start time was 9am.

    October 9, 2012

  • Marcie

    Peter, Any chance of making the start time a little bit later. To get to Rockport by 8 we need to leave this area no later then 6:45 or so which is awfully early... Just a thought :)

  • Peter F.

    Pats game at a sports bar anyone? with lobster rolls!!

    September 29, 2012

  • Laura

    Hey Pete - thanks for setting up the shorter ride - my knee is still an issue so I am definitely up for less mileage! As for the date, I can do any of the dates proposed but I need at least one other person who wants to ride short so am a bit at the mercy of the group...

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
