Easy C Rider - Ride Pictures 2008

Pictures from the August 3rd ECR Brookfield Ramble ride.

Regrouping in West Brookfield before going off on back roads towards New Braintree

The critical turn in this ride. Go to their left (my right) and you're on Gilbertville Road to Gilbertville
and the long climb into Hardwick.
Go to their right (my left) and the road is quiet and flat all the way to Barre Plains.

The riders pull into Barre Plains, only about 7 miles left to go, or so we thought. A bridge out changed that

Taking a break in Barre Plains

The most un-ECR profile of the detour: that first climb ran 12-14% grade.
