This is always a Great ride :)
Anyone who has driven or biked the NH Coast along 1A, knows how nice & scenic it is with long rolling hills along the way, nice beach homes with perfectly landscaped yards & plenty to see along the way. There are nesting swans in Eel Pond just before Jenness Beach. There are a few places along the way for snacks or water.
** we will plan on stopping for ice cream at the Beach Plum on the ride back **
I know you are all wondering .. a Meetup at a Seafood Restaurant..?? Well there is a small town beach with a nice parking lot to the right of this Seafood restaurant that will allow for sufficient parking. We can meet here & ride North up route 1A to Odiorne Point State Park & then back. We usually break for a snack in the shade of the tree's at Odiorne Point, where can also use the facilities.
After the days ride, join us at Castaways Seafood for a few drinks & appetizers. We can sit out on the deck which over looks the ocean. If you stay long enough you can watch the sunset on the upper deck.
This ride is approx. 14 miles one way so we will cover 28 miles total for the day.
** Pace will be Moderate to Fast (ave 12-15mph) would like the group to stay together - Sometimes breaking into 2 smaller groups, faster & slower but this is still a good paced ride.
** no guests please per this group's policy, please have them sign up & agree to the waiver - thanks
