Tuesday, 7/23: Halls Brook Rd Hillclimb

**We are going to ride.  I'm getting conflicting forecasts, though it looks like it'll be good.  I'll go with the more promising, which calls for great conditions.  

Next up is the Halls Brook Road hillclimb--relatively short at ~5.3 miles, but climbs ~1000ft.  The climb will begin at the intersection of Route 25 and Halls Brook Road, continue until the Stop sign @ North Groton Road, where the course turns right and goes another ~1.6 miles until the yellow "Cattle Crossing" sign on your right. 

As a hillclimb, this will be a group start and drafting is allowed.  Riders will get descending points according to place.  So if ten people ride, the 1st place finisher will get 10 points and the 10th place finisher will get 1 point.  Points leaders get bragging rights.

If you can make it, don't forget your computer or watch since we'll get times for the climb at the end.  Let anyone know who you think might be interested!

The ride goes off at 
6pm at the beginning of Halls Brook Road in Rumney:
