This ride, a little off NSC's beaten path, is a gem!  It follows country roads thru the Groton and Pepperell areas before heading north to Hollis, NH, and then turning back south thru Tyngsborough to the starting point.  Along the way, we'll cross the Nashua River twice and pass several working farms. Many vistas to the southwest open as the ride descends from Hollis.

Wednesday Morning at NSC ...

... offers something for everyone in the riding season.

Hillary Benson's Ponds and Forests from Smolak on Wednesday Morning covers paces up to the mid 14's on beautiful routes. 

The Wednesday Morning Rotating Ride is usually ridden at a 15 mph minimum though some ride it slower. It is a great ride to help improve your pace on some of NSC's finest routes. There is one route each week with 30 miles as the out of/early season distance and 40 or so as the in season distance. The ride is followed with lunch, usually at the restaurant the ride starts from.

Both groups are very inviting and at their peaks will have 20 or more riders each.
