On the last official SMR B ride of the season, we had quite the adventure! A bridge out, and a turkey vulture nearly taking us out! I think we forgot about all the climbing we did!

On a cloudy, but much cooler (almost cold!) morning, we had nine arrive ready to tackle yet another challenging route I planned out. I had a few requests (really!) to do one of the harder climbs in Western MA- E. Hawley Rd.
Here is a fun historical ride report of one of the most epic rides I have taken the club on. I am still undecided if I will do it this year (please comment below if interested!).
Today was the big D2R2 gravel ride for Franklin Land Trust, so we only had 5 riders arrive for my planned route up to Cummington.
Another high-ish mileage ride drew about a dozen riders. The threat of rain and storms never panned out. It was a slog with the humidity and challenging climbs, but a great group for a fun day covering some areas we don’t get to very often.
This week we stretched out the mileage a bit to experience the Mohawk Trail, a beautiful climb to Savoy, and a relaxing and quiet descent into Cummington.
A little chill in the air today, but it was sunny! We had a great ride that took us over the border in to Connecticut.
A perfect weather day called for some beautiful (but challenging) riding up to the Berkshire county town of Peru, which is the highest altitude municipality in Massachusetts at 2064′.
