Seven of us met at the Academy (Joe L., David G., Dave L., me (Jonathan B.), Paul D., Andrew, and Frank. We headed out on the Wednesday route, but took a number of back roads through Hadley, and popped out on 116 outside South Deerfield then onto River Road before the Sunderland bridge. Joe split at this point, but the rest of us forged ahead, continuing to fight a really tough head wind. Once we hit the hills, Andrew, David and Frank were way ahead. We regrouped not too far from Greenfiedl and then headed by the fish hatcherie to the bookmill for water and then down falls road to 47 all the way back to town now with the wind at our backs. All in all the ride was about 50 miles with an average speed of 17.5. A lot of fun!!!
