This group is for like-minded people who are active and are 40-50 years old or older. We are enjoying the journey of our adventures and taking our time. We are a group who wants to meet new friends and participate in groups activities. We keep our event attendance at no more than 8-12 cyclists allowing all attendees to have interaction with each other. You will not find a large cycling event in this group. We also ride at a slower pace of 6-10 mph and take multiple breaks to rest or for scenic vistas.
Let's explore the wonderful rail trails of New England by bicycle (primarily Southern NH, and rail trails 90 minutes from Jaffrey, NH that will include trails in Massachusetts). Learning the history of the rail trails along the way. Explore nature walks, beautiful gardens and scenic areas of New England. Perhaps some easy hikes or yoga. The focal events will primarily be biking on rail trails. The secondary events will be nature walks. Winter activities will be offered - snowshoeing, skiing or snowboarding, and easy winter hikes.
Event hosts/Event organizers needed - Because our group spans from New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Vermont, and potentially beyond, we need regional hosts to maintain an active group. If interested send me a message.
PHOTO POLICY - Please maintain a forward facing profile photo of yourself where your entire face is able to be seen clearly. For safety reasons our members and organizers need to recognize you at events. Members without this photo are not allowed to participate in our group events.
RSVP ETIQUETTE: We hope when you RSVP to an event, you are committing to the event or you feel certain you will be able to attend. We understand sometimes the unexpected occurs and you need to cancel. If you cannot make it to an event, we ask that you please edit your RSVP at least two days prior to the event date or as soon as you know - this way it opens it up for others to attend. Changing your RSVP the night before the event or less than 24 hours before the event gives the organizer very short notice and is disappointing to others who are expecting you to attend. Any member who RSVP yes, then no to events more than 3 consecutive times in a 12-month period may be waitlisted to 36 hours before the event. If there is room to add an attendee, the member will be contacted by the organizer.
DOGS: We will allow dogs on nature walks or hikes. Dogs are not allowed on cycling events. Dogs must be well-behaved and on a traditional leash. We ask that you do not have your dog on a retractable leash. If the event venue does not allow dogs, it will be posted in the event description.
