Not sure what the weather will be but if it is a nice day we will make it to the Hill Top Cafe on a 52 mile loop, if it is wet we will do a shorter loop and have lunch in Pepperell.
Ramble through central MA on quiet county roads. We wait for folks at turns. Stops at mile 13 and 20 with lunch at mile 26 at the Hilltop Cafe (http://www.hilltopcafenh.com/) and ice cream at mile 43. After lunch route is either downhill or relatively flat with the last 10 miles are on the Nashua River Rail Trail. That being said there is a 6 mile hill to get up to the hill top lunch and a few miles of dirt roads.
You should be able to cycle 13-15 mph on the flats. Need bright clothes, flashy lights, spare inner tube, working bike and helmet. Meet at 9:45 for a 10:00 start.
