|Heading Toward Chesterville on Valley Road|
After our fine ride last Saturday from Gardiner to Bowdoinham (thanks, Joe!) this Saturday we will fill in an open date in the calendar with another great ride in Livermore through Leeds and Fayette - 25 miles, with an optional longer loop of about 41 miles, traversing the entire Chesterville Esker, out and back, as well as a extension into North Chesterville. All of it on rather flat terrain, and the route has some great local eateries along the way, scoped out by the ride's originator, Frank Rosen. Breakfast at the Lunch Pad restaurant is also optional: it's a nice little seasonal diner and ice cream shop - yep, you're covered pre- and post-ride - Frank thinks of everything. We'd like to encourage those of our members who haven't ridden with us yet this year to come on out and join us. Frank has moved to more temperate climes in Pennsylvania (everybody says "Hi" Frank!) so he's excused, but we'd like to see everyone else on Saturday!
Saturday, August 3rd - LIVERMORE
"Single Chainring Tour" - an exploration of the flatlands from Livermore to Leeds, through Fayette to the Chesterville Esker.
START: 8:30 AM at the Lunch Pad Restaurant (7:30 am if you want to join us for breakfast) at the junction of Rt.17 and Rt. 133 (Park Street) in Livermore, where Rt. 17 N comes into a "T" intersection just before downtown Livermore Falls. Park in the Footware parking lot next to the diner. We may have to shift parking into the nearby town park if the store is open, but we will figure that all out before the ride starts.
DISTANCE: 25 or 41 miles.
TERRAIN: mostly moderate with no big hills.
HIGHLIGHTS: Breakfast, beautiful roads and a nice flat run along the scenic Chesterville Esker.
LEADER: Jim Merrick, email@example.com.
