Sunday, June 23, 2019 12:00 AM

A friendly metric century with several ice cream stops on the quiet back roads of central Massachusetts. Ride statrts at 9 AM in Westminster. We will wait for people at turns. Turns are pretty far apart so there is plenty of opportunities to stretch your legs if want to ride faster.

Lunch/ice cream at mile 35 in Barre after all the longer hills. There are also two places to stop for a quick swim.

You will need to be comfortable biking 13-15 mph on the flats and have a working bike, bright clothes and helmet, spare inner tube, sun block and an ability to eat ice cream.
