SE MA NEMBA ADAMS FARM RIDE  (postponed due to wet conditions)

Adams Farm to Rocky Woods

The next SEMass NEMBA ride at Adams Farm will be taking advantage of our 8:15PM sunset.  This ride will be going to Rocky Woods and back. 

We’ll be meeting at the Adam’s Farm barn in Walpole Monday July 19 at 5 PM with wheels down NLT 5:15 PM.

This is a long ride.  Including the warmup, we’ll be riding 15 - 20 miles for OVER 2 hours of riding. 

You must be an experienced rider in good condition, must be able to stay with the group, and sustain a fun pace over a long distance. 

This is not a hammerfest but it is not a beginner ride either.  I ride to have fun.  

Adams Farm, Red Gate and Fork Factory are mostly single track.  Rocky Woods is mostly double track but with a fair amount of climbing.  The descents are super fun and the terrain is beautiful.  

The route will cross Adams Farm, hit the Red Gate Farm conservation area, traverse about a mile of residential roads, re-enter the trails at Fork Factory Brook, then cross Hartford Street to enter into Rocky Woods.  We’ll zig zag about 6 miles of trails in Rocky Woods before heading back more or less  the same route.  Bring a well-maintained bike, lots of water, bug spray, and a little food.  We should return about 8PM.  

Anyone who wants can join me for a post-ride brew at Castle Island Brewing Co.  They close at 9PM.

You don't have to be a member to attend this ride, but you must have pre-signed NEMBA's Annual Waiver.
