Enjoy a 20 mile ride and view the peak foliage on the easy & quiet Northern Rail Trail. This is the longest rail trail in New England. The trail is 48 miles long but we will only ride as far as Webster Lake in Franklin, about 11 miles each way.
After the ride we will have lunch at the eclectic Granny Judy's Kitchen, 71 N. Main St. Franklin.
Bring adequate fluids and emergency food plus spare tube, pump, and patch kit. Helmets are required and a bell or horn is recommended. Hybrid bikes are best suited for this trail of hard packed crushed stone and mountain bikes work well too. Road bikes can be used but not recommended although if you have 700 x 28 tires or larger you will be fine.
The start is in Boscawen, NH which is just north of Concord, NH
Meet at parking lot on Depot Street, Boscawen, NH
