We love the Fall!

We had a chilly start to our ride to Boxford on Saturday -- Fall is definitely upon us! Enjoying the noticeable changes in the season, with the foliage just starting to turn, Gail, Joan, Paul & Tam took the trail towards Topsfield as a dozen chipmunks scurried back and forth across the path ahead. Chipmunks everywhere!!

After exiting the trail and riding on towards Boxford, we chose the Lost Route (Washington to Lockwood Lane) to take the quiet country roads hugging the Boxford State Forest. (C-c-c-cold ride through the shady back roads so early in the morning! Brrrr.....)

Fall colors at The Danvers Swampwalk
After breakfast at the Boxford Community Store, we returned to the path to head home, skirting the Topsfield Fairgrounds coming alive with activity, and the aroma of fried food lingering in the air. Temps warmed up a bit as we rode -- a lovely morning for a 20 mile ride.

A great day for a ride!
