Start: Donelan's Supermarket in Acton. Please park in the lot behind the store located at 48 Brook St, otherwise you may not find us.
This is a Charles River Wheelman ride called "Poppies and Rhymes." They are actually riding it on Saturday, May 24, but we will be riding it on Memorial Day instead. Why repeat a bike club ride? I am notorious for wanting to start a ride later than the clubs. They start at 9, or maybe earlier; I start at 10:30 or later. This Meetup is for people who want to relax a bit on their nights off or who just aren't really morning people.
You must average at least 12 mph; I average between 12 and 15 mph for the most part. If there are many sign-ups, we will split into multiple groups with somewhat different speeds in this range. This is a 38 mile ride, so bring a road bike or hybrid. A mountain bike is not acceptable unless you can do 40 miles at a moderate pace. If this is you, then you know who you are.
Route map, cue sheet, and GPS info: http://ridewithgps.com/routes/4768120 Street arrow:
I will print reformatted "skinny"cue sheets on the day of the ride with a bit of extra info, but you may also print a cue sheet from the Ride With GPS site that is almost the same.
My car is a blue Hyundai Accent, and I will leave extra printed cue sheets on my windshield for any latecomers who want to ride on their own.
A forecast of steady rain during the ride time of 10:30-2:30 cancels. A few drops here and there, and the ride is still on.
Lunch will be at 22.3 miles at the Main Street Cafe, 159 Main Street, Groton.
