Test Ride for Nantucket Bike Trip

The test/pre-ride for the Nantucket Bike Trip is this Saturday, June 14th.  Please meet at the beginning of the trail on the mainland side of the at 9:00 AM.  Pickup will be at 1:00 PM in the same location.

Directions from Middleborough:

For this ride, you MUST bring the following:
Water for the day - IMPORTANT!  One small bottle will not be enough!
Sandwich or something for lunch in a day pack
Bike helmet and bike in good working order

There will be no bike pump available, so please be sure your tires are at the correct pressure and your bike is in good running order.

Please ride your bike beforehand to get the dust and cobwebs off your bike (and yourself).

IF YOU DO NOT MAKE THE TEST RIDE, OR CANNOT COMPLETE THE 14 MILES TRIP (WITH A BREAK AT THE 7 MILE MARK), YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO GO ON THE NANTUCKET BIKE TRIP.  Due to the fact that we will be on the rail to trail system, we need to make this mandatory.

If you have any questions, please be sure to ask at this week's meeting.
