British Bike Ride, 11 Nov. '06

Photo by Ray Coffey

The New England Section and friends enjoyed a scenic, unhurried ride on their old British bikes. The day was unseasonably mild, but finished with a delightful chill in the air. Much of the route was off-road atop the 19th Century Sudbury Aqueduct, which once carried drinking water from reservoirs in Framingham to the city of Boston. There are photos of our tour at

Our party enjoyed the fall of dusk at Echo Bridge by Newton Upper Falls, then it was lamps on for a final run to the Cherry Tree in West Newton, whose taps provided refreshments suitable to celebrate a great day out.

New England Section Fall Camp

Mansfield, Mass., 28-29 October 2006

At the top of Moose Hill Road in Sharon, the riders savored a bottle of L'Eroica chianti that club mate Martin Hanczyc brought from Gaioli in Tuscany. After a toast, we rode to the Great Blue Hill where, following a scramble over rocks with the bikes on our shoulders, we finished the bottle on the summit as the sun set on a great New England fall day.
