Join the Wednesday Wramblers for a leisurely (10-12 mph) bike ride through Concord, Carlisle and adjacent towns. This 21 mile ride will start and end at Great Brook State Park. The terrain is rolling with a few hills (963 feet of elevation gain) to help you earn that ice cream. We will pass farms and wetlands and the Concord River. This route is entirely on-road but traffic should be light mid-week. Please be prepared with water, snacks, lunch and a bike in good condition as well as layers appropriate for the day's weather.
Registration is required for this ride and we will be limiting the number of riders so please register early. Full trip information will be emailed on the Monday or Tuesday before the ride. There is a small parking fee at Great Brook State Park unless you have a state park senior pass which gives you free parking. There are bathrooms at the start.
I began leading bike trips for the AMC in 1990 and led for ten years before taking a break. When I became active with the Forty Plus Committee I decided to start leading again. I took a refresher leadership course and Wilderness First Aid and now I am certified as a cross-country ski and bike leader. I have met many wonderful leaders and trip participants and Forty Plus has become one of my most enjoyable retirement activities.
