Assabet River Rail Trail

6 mile (one way) paved trail hits Marlboro to Hudson. I have done this trail once before with another meetup group some time ago, it's nice. Flat and paved. Going to meet in Marlboro instead of Hudson like it said in the title.

    Carolyn-do you have the lock that I let you borrow? Or did you give it to Vito to give to me? Vito?

      Sha I have your lock...I tried sending you email through the meetup site, but I guess you never received it. I will try again so we can agree on a place/time to get the lock back to you.

      Sha, I gave the lock to Vito. Please read his message. I'm sorry I forgot about it when we separated. Thanks again, Vito for helping me out with this.

    The really disappointing part is people not showing up for a committment they signed up for, I don't know what is happening this year but people are being inconsiderate, tisk tisk.

      I was hoping to get a ride, but it didn't work out... so I probably should not try to sign up any more :(

    Re Kim's comment of "riding slow"- Not so slow or leisurely! I did say that I needed to stop for a minute and my comment was heard and repeated to the group(of 4) and beeped my horn loudly.....but was ignored. People were way ahead of me beyond where I could see them! I couldn't keep up and was left alone in the woods panting!! :((

      I'm sorry Sha, we do ride as a group for the most part but can not stop at every mile or for every break, I do encourage if people go ahead a bit to wait ''AT THE END OF THE STREET" so to speak so others can catch up but if indiv's want to take an extra break for whatever reason then the whole group should not have to stop all the time. I did not hear a horn probably cause I was chatting to someone else and I am not in tune to bike horns. I remember a time that you were way ahead of us and me and another were behind. I know I looked behind me several times (as I ALWAYS do compared to other organizers or members when they are in the lead) to see if everyone is reasonably close together esp crossing streets but as In fact I was not waited for when some of us extended the ride to Dairy Queen/Papa Ginos and the lake and I was left behind LOL.

    My friend and I got lost while driving there (we both have excellent sense of directions lol). GPS estimates arrival time 1:20... I guess we're going to miss the group :(

    Is this ride at 10:00am or 1:00pm? it's listed both ways

    June 7, 2013

    • Kim

      The ride at 10am is going through the forest on dirt trail, this is on paved trail and will most likely not being going thru the woods.
