Tour de Lyme

I wanted let everyone know what a great time I had at the Tour de Lyme. It was a challenging 56 miles, 4600 feet of climbing. After 20 miles in, I managed to meet a group of great folks. Some  of them recognized our Nerac Earth jersey and mentioned how much fun they always had at the ashford metric century! ! Maybe next year we can get a few club members down to Lyme Ct. And recruit some more folks. Now its on to my first Angel Ride! Hope to see some of you there..  — Todd ImageImage

Nerac Earth Announces The 6th Annual Ashford Metric Century

Nerac Earth, a nonprofit cycling club located in Tolland, is pleased to invite everyone to come out and participate in the sixth annual Ashford Metric Century, a fund-raising bicycle ride event to be held on Sunday, Sept. 29. The 10, 25, 62 and 100 mile routes travel through the “quiet corner” of northeastern Connecticut and surrounding areas in Massachusetts for the longer rides. The back country roads, stunning fall foliage and cool weather conditions make this a classic New England bicycle ride.

All routes are fully supported and there are multiple rest stops stocked with food, drinks and water. In addition, all pre-registered riders will receive a 2013 Ashford Metric Century t-shirt and after the ride, we will be serving baked potatoes with all the fixings and homemade apple crisp with ice cream. There will be free massages offered by CT Center for Massage Therapy to get you rolling again.
