    Thugs have taken over the bike path.

    I use the bike path maybe 50% of the time heading into or out of town if I'm going toward rte. 140, because it gets me off that raceway. Over the last couple weeks I have encounter these guys blocking the path. I want to be careful passing by because don't want to clip one and hurt them.

    Took this path for the first time ever today. It's great. Not just that the path is nice but because there's been many times I wanted to do a ride where I would want to get from Winchendon to Ashburnham or visa versa but scrapped it simply because that stretch of rt 12 sucks to bad and I didn't know another way.

    Added bonus today was that there was some big festival at the Clark Memorial with lots of food and I was starving when I got of the path there. So that was nice.

    I skip on it all the time to get off parts of rte. 12 the raceway. The old trail is a little rougher in some section but it gets you off rte. 140 for a bit. I used to own the bowling center right behind the Clark. You'll have to give me a heads up whenever your riding threw the area, and I can be a anchor for you for a few miles.

    Wow that's interesting. I think I remember that bowling place, faintly. I'm from over the border in NH but played youth hockey at the Clark for many years as a kid.

    Definitely keeping that in mind. I'll drop you a note though this site if there's a time that would work out. Also, I'll recognize you on the road from your video's here so don't be surprised if some stranger chases you down to say hello.
