The Foxboro Grind & Grub Group Message Board › Fall & Winter Plans
Greetings, Just to let you know, what I am planning. I am not a Cold Weather Biker. I will Post Rides, but I will look at the Weather more closely, as it gets Colder. Last Year, we had 2 Rides in November, Indian Summer. If anyone wants to Organize Rides, in the Foxboro Area, be it Road, Off- Road, or Winter Biking, please let me know. When I became the Organizer a Year Ago, I stated, this is just as much your site, as it is mine. Feel free to step up & Organize a Ride or 2.
I have also started Hiking. Those who know me, know I Hike all Winter. That is how I stay in shape, during the Winter. You also feel Better & it tends to keep the Winter Blues away. I really do not have any special gear. Mainly Wool / Hiking Socks, Hiking Shoes, ( Insulated if you plan to Hike when it is really Cold ) , & I like a Wicking Shirt. Then I dress in Layers.
I plan to Post a couple of Hikes, on this site, to see if there is any interest. The Hikes are usually 3-4 hours long. Whenever possible, I have short-cuts, for those just starting out. We Hike at a Good Pace, but stop at all intersections, so everyone can catch-up. I have been Leading Hikes for about 4 Years & you will be surprised at the Beauty, which can be found right in our own backyard. I plan to invite my other Meet-Up, Rhode Warriors, to join us. We have started building New Friendships, why not keep them going all Winter.
I have Posted this under Discussions. See the Blue Bar, at the top of the page. Should you have any Questions or Comments, feel free to reply there. That way, everyone who is interested, will know what is going on & can add their ideas.
Last September, when this Site was in need of an Organizer, after conferring with a couple of Members, I became the New Organizer. After Riding with you for a Year, I wanted to let you know, I am GLAD I made that decision.
Thanks for joining me on our Bike Rides, this Year, & believe it or not, Charities are already sending me info, for Rides next Year.
