Ride your bike. Eat pie. Ride home.
The annual pie ride is upon us. Be ready to ride on Saturday Oct 17th at 8 AM.
This 44 mile (22 miles each way) group ride covers rolling country terrain near the lower Connecticut River. The ride features an opportunity to enjoy a slice of thick, exceptional Apple Pie (or other baked goods) in Chester, CT at the Wheat Market, 4 Water Street.
This ride was started some years ago by Joe Damon. Beginning and ending in Marlborough, CT, you will enjoy riding past Lake Pocotopaug, the Goodspeed Opera House, a river crossing on an historic ferry, Gillette’s Castle, a covered bridge, one “real hill” and many quiet country roads.
Ride sheets (i.e. bike directions) will be available at the commuter lot on the south side of eastbound Route 2, Exit 12 (West St, Marlborough business route) in Marlborough, beginning at 8 am.
IMPORTANT: We want to make sure there is enough pie for everyone. Please RSVP to Aubrey (email@example.com) by the end of the day on Tuesday 10/14 if you will be joining us.Please remember to bring funds for the ferry passage, your food and drinks. $10 or $15 total should have you well covered and then some.This is NOT a HEAT sponsored event, just a few members who wanted to ride their bikes and eat some pie.
