A new ride using many of the delightful back roads familiar to NSC riders. The short route loops through Topsfield, Boxford and North Andover following a route similar to that of the short Saturday fitness ride. The medium route continues across Harold Parker State Forest to Andover, incorporating some of the roads used for the NSC Andover Tuesday night ride. After circling the scenic Andover Green, the ride returns via Harold Parker. The long ride adds 11 hilly miles in the northwest corner of Andover.
