We'll travel the quick route from Groton to Hollis NH, South Amherst and long route riders will attempt "the climb" up to Mont Vernon. Please be certain you have low gears for this and the Old Milford Road climb on the return. Be forewarned that both climbs have some steep sections!! If in doubt, the 45 (medium) mile ride has plenty of more do-able hills and travels a lovely route through Milford to Brookline, NH. The 30 mile ride detours from the longer rides in Hollis taking in quiet back roads into Brookline. Once back in Groton Filho's Cucina and the Salt and Light Cafe on Main Street are great places for lunch.

 

The long riders can stop @ Moulton's Market in Amherst just before the climb into Mont Vernon. Alternately, you can visit the Mont Vernon General store after the climb and before descending into Milford. The long ride will then ascend Old Milford Rd in Brookline. If you wish to bypass this climb after you reach Route 13 follow the 45 mile route. The Brookline General Store is now permanently closed - please plan your refueling stops accordingly! THIS IS NOT AN ARROWED RIDE.
