Last minute taste of Winter Ride if you dare. Tomorrow is supposed to be Sunny with lots of Wind and high of 40 ...very brrr.  

Route Summary:
33 mile ride starting in Concord thru Sudbury and Lincoln Returning to the Keyes Parking Area as a midpoint (around 14 miles). This is in case anyone feels the wind and cold is too much which could be everyone ;).

For those committed to getting in a full ride before the season is over,  continue out to Carlisle thru Great Brook State Farm and return to Keyes Parking area.  Main St Cafe at the parking area has warm drinks for after the ride.

The wind and cold means you have to dress right for the ride, i.e. windproof clothing and appropriate coverage (hands, feet, neck) and layers.

    Norm you made a good decision....the ride through/by the extremely windy airport at Hanscom was a gripping one to say the least..............overall a fun ride though..next time i hope to make it it the hot drinks part :)
