Come join your fellow club members for a fall ride from Groveland through the New Hampshire / Massachusetts borderlands, where autumn’s colors might be starting to turn and where NSC rides rarely venture.

All three rides are somewhat shorter than usual (albeit no less hilly, hello Corliss Hill!) to allow riders more time to return to Groveland for our fall picnic - with a surprise menu!

All routes begin at the Pines Recreation Area in Groveland, cross the mighty Merrimack, and head north together past the Whittier Homestead into NH. 

The 22 mile route continues through Newton NH before returning along Bear Hill Rd. to the Merrimack valley.

The 36 and 48 split from the short route around mile 8 to continue northwest through South Kingston and Danville. The 48 splits off again (around mi 15) to explore less-known roads further north with scenic views of ponds and woodlands.

The 36 and 48 reconnect 3/4 of the way through the ride to follow the pretty shorelines of Tuxbury Pond and Lake Attitash. 

All of the routes return along the north side of Merrimack River before recrossing the Bates bridge for our picnic back at the ride start in Groveland.
