MassBikePike Tour, Fitchburg, MA to Keene, NH
Thursday, August 1, 2013

We left Fitchburg early on Thursday morning after many of us spent Wednesday night in dorms. We started with relatively gentle hills and after the rest stop, there were lots of views of Mount Monadnock, which dominates the area. There were wild blueberries within reach along the road a few times, too, if you looked down. After an interesting lunch stop, those of us on the short ride zoomed to Keene to try to beat approaching storm clouds. Most of us did, though riders on the long route got wet. Two of our riders were yoga instructors and did a class in the dry pavilion which loosened up most of my joints after more riding at one time than I am used to.
