3rd Time's the Charm (Wachusett)
Last week's ride
was great. Reached out to the same group for another ride this week. Alex and James have races this weekend, but Marc -- was game. I offered Door #1 (
) and Door #2 (something much more
Type 1 Fun
) -- Marc opted for the "
Type 1.5 fun
" so off we went to Worcester County, AKA
Big Thigh Country
The result was a 96 mile jaunt. We enjoyed lunch at
in Rutland, the
geographic center of Massachusetts
. We then rode up Route 31 from Princeton by Wachusett Mountain. I asked Marc if he felt up for the climb, and he noted "
seems like the right thing to do
". Said that "
would go on his tombstone
". Good thing his wife Jess isn't on the d-list for bikemass351! Anyway, after going up Wachusett with
last year seeing nothing but clouds, this year we actually got a view from the top! Awesome!
On the return trip, we visited
, where a white settler was "redeemed" after capture during
King Philip's War
. Feeling redeemed ourselves, we headed back to Harvard, tired but satisfied.
