A lovely ride that hasn't been posted for awhile. From Acton, through Groton and Ayer to the Story Book Cottage in Shirley and (hopefully) field of poppies, and beyond. Both short and long rides go past the cottage. History [excerpted] from Shirley town website:  Storybook Cottage is the creation of Dave Holden. Dave purchased the property quite a few years back from his relatives and began the renovation. Dave befriended Tom Fleming, an exceptional artist, and commissioned him to create the storybook figures and signs on the building. Dave and Tom are no longer with us but what they left behind still brings lots of joy to many. Storybook is private property .
