The ride will take you from the back roads of Marshfield to the back roads of Duxbury, then onto the back roads of Pembroke, back into Marshfield to the Town Hall. I will post the map and que sheet when the vetting is complete. This route was designed specifically for this group ride.The ride should take a little more than two hours.

Roll from Route 53 to the coast. Meet at the parking lot behind the Bikeway Building. Bikeway is at 272 Columbia street. Do not park in front of the building. Buy some oil or tire levers from Aaron. Support our local bike shops.

Anticipate average to be 16-18 mph. We will regroup as needed, but try to keep tempo up and wheels rolling.

River Street is repaved. It is smooth as glass. The return now takes the entire section of River Street, which was repaved by the town of Norwell except the bridge owned by MassDOT.

On the way to the coast we roll down the smooth pavement on the big hill in wompatuck and take Wildcat Lane instead of Circuit st and Bowker.

HEAVY RAIN ALWAYS CANCELS ! ! Weather is expected to be nice on Saturday. Let’s have a good ride. We will focus on safe pace-lining.

Starters incuded Marcel, Ian, Chris, Christos, Richard, and Bill.

We did the 37 mi coastal loop. The weather was not too bad. Christos said that he had been in Ireland, a lot. He was used to riding the wet weather. It only started to pour towards the end on River St. River St is finally paved!
