    I did 16 miles on the Norowutuck (sp?) Rail trail. This is the one from Northampton, MA to Amherst,MA. It is 8 miles from one parking lot to another, so I did round trip.

    Of course all of the calories burnt were replenished after eating at Bub's BBQ in Sunderland, MA.

    Max,
    Let me know if you're going to do this one. I may be able to help out as a support crew/sag wagon for your team. BTW, sorry I missed the Sutton race but I'm glad to hear you did so well for the first event of the season. The dog had an intestinal bug and I spent that weekend cleaning her cage. Seems everytime I got it cleaned she soiled it again. Damn glad that's over!

    Tell Little Chicken we finally bought the little guy a swingset and play fort. I spent the whole weekend cutting lumber and erecting it (took me almost 20 hours), but it was all worth it to see his smile on the first trip down the slide.

    On Sunday, I went up to and rode the Nashua River Trail, a paved bike trail running from Ayer center for 11 miles up to the NH line.

    This is a beautiful trail - DEM did a terrific job here and created quite an asset to the surrounding communities. The trail goes through woods, by farms and conservation land, past a beaver pond with the largest lodge I've ever seen, and along the Nashua River. Just north of Pepperell Center there are places to get off on older, unpaved grades along the river's edge, and I also saw markers for the "Groton Trail Network", whatever that is.

    The Ayer start/end of the trail includes a pair of Clivus composting toilets - kudos to DEM for these. Right there across the street is Dunkin Donuts for your post-ride iced coffee fix, and the commuter rail station is across the street in the other direction if you want to ride out from Boston to the trail.

    It was a little busy by Pepperell Center, many families were out, but still just a fraction of the crowds on the Minuteman. I have some pictures here.

    I highly recommend this trail; it's a real gem! Next up - I want to try the Ware River Trail.

    A very nice area proven by your 3 pages of pix. Lots of water and tree relections. I saw some green leaves. Happy spring!
