Evening Bike Ride at Nashua Rail Trail

Anyone else anxious to get out there and start biking again.? Come join us for a bike ride on Wednesday night. We are meeting at the Gilson Road parking lot in Nashua (intersection of Country Side Drive & Gilson Road)

We will meet at 6 pm & be on the path by 6:15 pm. We will travel south towards Pepperell, so depending on the pace of the group & day light available, we might get to Groton. I am thinking about 1 hr out & 1 hr back. So hope to be back at the parking lot around 8-830pm

You will need a Helmet & bring a head lamp or have lights on your bike. Please bring water & snack if you want, as well as spare tire.

The Nashua River Rail Trail is a former railroad right of way that travels 12 miles (24 miles round trip) through the towns of Nashua, Dunstable, Pepperell, Groton and Ayer. The trail offers a 10-foot wide flat paved surface for the entire length. The entire trail is open to pedestrians, bicyclists, inline skaters, wheelchairs, and cross-country skiers.

The Nashua River Rail Trail travels along a varied landscape, offering numerous scenic overlooks, ponds, apple orchids and opportunities to see wildlife and has several resting stops along the way.
