I can't top what Ti Designs just posted, but we were very happy to have you join the group! Thanks for making the effort (and the drive) to ride with us. And I agree, it was a terrific way to spend the morning!

Damned embarrassing that he kept dropping me!

Let's do this again. We're planning on July 22nd as the next go-round of the Next Tour. Ian and I have been exploring the little known back roads, dirt roads and even one non-road in an effort to put together another fantastic tour with far too many turns. As with all Next Tours, there's no cue sheet or GPS file. Ian knows where he's going and I'm either bringing up the rear or sprinting for town lines.

Details to follow...

I'm forever following in Ed's slipstream...

Yep, we're gonna ride on Saturday, July 22nd, leaving the Bedford Depot parking lot (80 Loomis St.) at 7am. We'll be back by noon after having traveled 60-65 miles, and climbed 3k feet. Should be about a 17 mph pace.

This time we head south towards Dover and Sherborn. We'll see some of the area's under-appreciated colleges (Regis, Babson, Wellesley), ride along the Charles River where it is still modest, and visit "ponyhenge." There will be one brief dirt section because it'll take us to one of my favorite, hidden idylls in the area.

Please join us--it's not a group ride without a group! (And send a pm to me or Ti Designs so we know you're coming. Thanks.)

Thanks, Mark! It was great to meet and ride with you. Enjoy your time in Maine, but the Next Tour wouldn't be a bad consolation prize, either!
