Enjoy scenic routes on quiet country roads with plenty of shade and a variety of climbing. Bring your big gears for the hills and a camera for the views. We'll cycle through Pepperell and Hollis with a stop at Moulton's Market before climbing to the top of Mont Vernon. We descend through downtown Milford with an optional Bakery stop then on to Brookline for the next big climb past Parker's Maple Barn and the birthplace of Uncle Sam. The mid-point of the ride in Mason is the high-point in elevation with a unobstructed view of Pack Monadnock followed by a long slow descent to Townsend. We pass through Pearl State Park and two recreational lakes in Townsend and Shirley, then head back through Groton to Pepperell for the finish.
Different riders may ride at different paces, so we will regroup at the rest-stop in Brookline near mile 40.
There is a Cumberland Farms in Pepperell, noted on the route, with indoor restrooms if you need to stop and gather water and food before the start of the ride.
This is a DEVO ride, participants will be able to accumulate elevation towards the Climbing Challenge https://www.strava.com/clubs/155/posts/16516924
