    Bstreet / Earls Ride This SUNDAY! 8:30

    I've been getting some people requesting a tour so here it goes. I am also going to put this up on the NEMBA site on Facebook.

    When: Sunday, July 20th
    Ride Starts: 8:30
    Where: Bachelor St. Parking lot (MAPQUEST 85 Bachelor st)
    Distance: 18-20 Miles
    Time: 3-3.5 Hrs

    This is an intermediate to advanced ride. If you can do 20 miles of single track in a reasonable time, then come join us.

    This will not be a high-speed ride; figure averages to be around 7 mph.

    We will stop and regroup at trail heads. Nobody will be left behind.

    If you are in, reply, so I can get a general idea of who is going. There is a mid ride bail if you feel it's too much for you.

    Paul

    I am in! Thanks for organizing.
    I would love to see the "tech" that B-street has to offer if we're going that way.

    Dang! I'm seeing this too late but really would love to hook up with a group of folks and delve into the Earl's trail system. Is there another ride like this happening anytime soon?

    I ride the ice house loop in Florence regularly, is Earl's more/less technical?

    Thanks for any replies!

    Earls is less technical for sure; it's know more for its flow, climbs, and descents.

    You seek Bachelor street! If you'd like, I can run the same ride I did a few weeks ago with the other guys. We can do it anytime (I am a teacher off for the summer) or for those who work, possibly Sat am? 8:30?

    Any tour guides available this Sunday morning for Bstreet and Earls? Looking for a full tour at a spirited pace . I can reciprocate with a tour of Groton.

    Thats cool. I think we're gonna grab a map and hit CTS instead. I'll still be on the lookout for a Bstreet/Earls ride before the seasons thru.
