60th Birthday Ride
It is customary on your birthday to “bike your age” (years=miles).
This might be a mile or so more than necessary for a 60th birthday, and it’s very hilly. It’s the Quabbin metric century route, but starting at Long Pond, Rutland, MA, instead of Naquag Elementary School. That should shave about 4 miles from the 65-mile route.
The following links have the Naquag start/finish, but we’ll meet at Long Pond. Dress warm!
Birthday person expects to average 12-13 mph, with photo ops at Hardwick Winery, Goodnough Dike, and Gilbertville Covered Bridge.
