Be Prepared: Please be prepared to be self-sufficient. Have your own provisions such as first aid kit, food, water, extra clothing for unplanned weather, etc. Have your EMERGENCY CONTACT SHEET completed and in your backpack; it may save your life, and help reach someone who greatly cares!
Pace: There may be activities when the group is either slower or faster than your current ability. Please know that because this is a group activity, it's hard to accommodate everyone's pace perfectly. Our desire is not to leave anyone, however there have been times when it is in the best interest of all to split up. Please do your part by knowing your own abilities, communicating with the organizer head of time if you would like to start early and have us catch up or fine with finishing on your own.
Summary

Celebrate upcoming Gay Pride Month and join Scott and Dave from Frog Meadow for a 45-mile ride through the beautiful farmland & hills of Southern Vermont and Western Massachusetts and the Connecticut River Valley.

This ride is like riding through a real picture postcard, passing small family farms with dairy cows in their pastures and corn fields. The ride is moderately hilly, a total elevation change/climb of 820 feet.
