October Colors Ride


Join Kevin Martin for a ride up into the White Mountains National Forest crossing the Kancamagus east to west from Lincoln into Conway NH.  Ride leaves at 7:30 AM from Johnson’s Restaurant & Dairy Bar in Groton MA. This is approximately a 280 mile / 7 hour round trip ride.  

To make up time on this long ride and short daylight, we’ll need to take I-93 North out of Windham NH, go through the Hooksett Tolls, then exit the interstate at Exit 24 (US-3) in Ashland where we’ll stop at Dunkins for a break.  

From Dunkins - Ashland, we’ll take US-3 North into Lincoln, stopping for another break before crossing the Kancamagus Pass into Conway NH where we’ll pick up Rt-153 South. Lunch will be at the Miss Wakefield Diner on Rt-16 in Wakefield, NH. Ride ends at the Honey Dew Donuts on Westford Rd., in Westford MA, next to US-3.

Meeting Location: Johnson’s Restaurant & Dairy Bar, 164 Boston Rd., (Rt-119) Groton MA. Get there early if you want breakfast, please gas up before the ride starts.

Lunch Location: Miss Wakefield Diner, 7 Windy Hollow Rd., Wakefield, NH 03872 Estimated mileage / Time: 278 miles / 7 hours (including stops)
