    This scenic 30-mile (M) ride goes from Underhill to Cambridge on mostly dirt and gravel roads past a myriad of old stone walls and not so old solar panels. Our midway point is the store at the end of Upper Pleasant Valley Road in Cambridge. If there is sufficient interest, at the end of the ride we can add an extra seven miles roundtrip to Poorhouse Pies in Underhill to share a delicious treat.

    Meeting Place: St. Thomas Church of Underhill, 6 Green Street
