Seeing as this SMR was somewhat short I’ll try to keep the report the same.

The recent cool weather continued this morning, with a bit of a chill at the start, but things warmed up nicely as the day progressed. We rolled from the Academy with a group of about 17, and headed over to Williamsburg for the first big climb of the day, up Hyde Hill Rd into Chesterfield.
For our fourth Super Saturday Morning Ride of the year, Roberto suggested a couple of climbs, and I pieced together a route to get us there. The day started out looking a little threatening, with a tiny bit of drizzle at the start, which may have scared some folks away.
We haven’t been up in the Patten district for a while, so today I planned a route to take us up through Conway, across the bridge on Bardwells Ferry Rd, and up into the Patten.
Nine people showed up to brave this one. The weather was gorgeous- clear blue skies with temperatures starting in the low 60’s, rising to the upper 70’s. However, persistent NW winds between 15-25MPH made most of the ride a real challenge.
Nice ride. A bit disheveled, but still a good day out. Ten of us headed up to the Book Mill via North Farms Road, Whately center, old Deerfield, then into Montague from the north.
Our second Super-SMR of the year kicked off on probably the best day of cycling weather we’ve seen so far this year. There was a bit of a chill in the air when the group of ten or so rolled out at 7:30 AM, but the sun was already starting to brighten the cloudless sky, and it warmed up quickly.
Great Quabbin ride today, with a group of about 11 riders, split about half-and-half between those starting from Belchertown and those riding from Amherst and meeting in Pelham.
