What You Missed or The View from Mt. Wachusett on Memorial Day
Our fearless leader (Julie,) John Fennel (her domestique,) Kevin Young, Brian Anderson, and I took advantage of a nearly perfect Memorial Day to ride to the top of Mt. Wachusett today. John and Julie rode to my house in Weston from Somerville making it more than a century, Brian swung by from Concord. For Kevin and I it was a tad over 86 miles. While armwarmers were a good idea for the first 5-10 miles, I was in full Little Stevie Weller mode by the ride home with full zip jersey fully unzipped. We wound away out through Weston, Wayland, Sudbury, Hudson, Stow, Bolton, Lancaster, Sterling and Princeton. Wachusett was a bit crowded but visibility was a 9 and just marvelous at the top. On the way home we added Harvard, Acton, Lincoln, and Concord to towns hit. I learned a bit about neuro-biology (about as much as I'm capable of) and managed to learn that John hates Quine (I don't) but did avoid sex offender defense strategies. I'll have to wait for the next team night for that. Sorry more of you couldn't join us.
