This year's Father's Day Ride will be in honor of Lenny Ortins, our dear friend and club stalwart who recently passed away.  Lenny ran this ride on Father's Day the past few years.  We'll have a leader assigned to each route and encourage riders to stay around afterward and share memories of Lenny.

The ride heads out on the High St. bike lanes and passes through Maudslay State Park. We swing down through the wooded roads in the Byfield and West Newbury area, then cross the Merrimack River at the Bates Bridge and ride along the river to Amesbury. The long route continues north, passing through Exeter. Lots of rural countryside, a couple of charming New England towns, and beautiful views of the broad Merrimack River. The return includes a few miles on the Old Eastern Marsh Trail in Salisbury.
