Tour of the Back Forty

We had a really fine ride in Vassalboro last Saturday, followed by a wonderful post-ride lunch and get-together presented by our gracious hosts, David and Laura Lipman.  Our thanks to the Lipmans for the ride and their hospitality!  If today was any indication, the weather in June has taken quite an upswing, just in time for Leanne Moll's "Tour of the Back 40" in Windsor this Saturday.  Please note that we will be meeting at the Windsor Elementary School, about a half-mile north of the advertised ride start at the Windsor Fairgrounds, where they are hosting the Fibre Frolic this weekend (worth a visit if you have the time).  Hope you can take advantage of the great riding weather!
June 7th, Saturday:  WINDSOR
"Tour of the Back 40":  a tour up and down the banks of the Sheepscot River from Windsor to Alna.
START:  9:00 A.M., at the Windsor Elementary School on Rt. 32, about a mile north from the junction of Rt. 17 and Rt. 32.  The school is on the left, northbound.  NOTE: this starting location is about a half-mile north of the previously-advertised start at the Windsor Fairgrounds.
DISTANCE:  40 miles.
TERRAIN:  moderate to hilly.
HIGHLIGHTS:  scenic back roads with fine straight runs (definitely), the R. Majorowitz Sculpture Garden in Alna (maybe), and nice views of the Sheepscot (for sure), one of the most pristine rivers in the Northeast.
LEADER:  Leanne Moll.
