***CRW WATER BOTTLE RAFFLE: Swag will be raffled off to 2 registered riders! ***
*** FREE BEER: CRW will buy each rider a post-ride beer at Deciduous Brewing! ***
Start / Finish / Parking: Deciduous Brewing Co, 12 Weaver St, Newmarket, NH. The library and restaurants don't open until noon on Sunday so parking here is ok.
Stops: mile 21: Liar's Paradise General Store; mile 42: Coffee Craving

Description: Raid Rockingham is 60-mile route that includes about 25 miles packed gravel roads and an optional Class VI adventure segment.
Gear: You'll want to bring at least one tube (2 would be better), patches, and a pump. A multi-tool, chain-breaker, and link would be a good idea. Wide 32 – 35mm (or wider) tires will be most suitable. Make sure your bike is in good working order before you arrive; you are self-supported for mechanicals. A helmet is required. A smartphone or GPS for navigation could be handy.

Raid Rockingham was created by LOCO Cycling, aka GRVL Cycling: https://ridewithgps.com/users/65701
We are doing this route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/37428480

Notes: 

Meet at Deciduous Brewing Co, 12 Weaver St, Newmarket, NH. Please get there at 7:45 so we can roll at 8:00 AM.
Ride limited to ~7 plus the leader. Please stay home if sick or not vaccinated.
This is a GRAVEL ride. Wide 32 –35 mm tires will be most suitable.
We will average ~14mph with 2 stops for food.
This is a no-drop ride, but riding gravel is harder than riding paved roads. If you can't average 14mph on dirt with some climbing (17mph paved road equivalent) then this ride may not be for you. I want to get home in time for the Pats game.
Due to the challenge of this ride, the leader may request additional information from registrants prior to being accepted for the ride. We appreciate your understanding.

The Hanson Sunday Ride is your chance to ride on roads that are not common for CRW and take in terrain so gorgeous that you might wonder how you have missed it. The HSR are full of cranberry bogs, lakes, farms, woods, and the flattest terrain in Massachusetts. Take it easy and “smell the cranberries” or record your fastest ride this season. Ride starts promptly at 9:00AM Sunday. Please arrive early! Park near the bank at the far end of the parking lot.

 

Check the South Shore Mellow Riders on FaceBook for updates and cancelations.

The route covers towns in the south that appear infrequently in the CRW calendar. We take mostly quiet roads in Medfield, Norwood, Sharon, Mansfield, Foxboro, and Walpole. The long ride adds Norton and Attleboro. Highlights of the ride include several notable ponds: Jewells, Pettee, Willett, Bird, Sawmill, Chartley, Fulton, Kingman. Whitville, Beaumont, Vandys, Crackrock, Plimpton, and Cobbs. If the weather is unusually warm, bring a towel since we will be stopping at the beach on Lake Massapoag for a swim. We will celebrate Linda's birthday with lunch at the Blue Moon Bagel Cafe at the end of the ride.

Notes: 

Please print your own Cue sheet and bring it to the ride if you do not have a GPS device.
