A few TriFury activities this weekend to remind you about.

TriFury Weekly ride starts at 7:30 a.m.
TriFury Saturday Morning rides continue - join us this week
The forcast for this weekend looks excellent for riding. Lows is the fifties, highs in the seventies, sunny and five mph winds.
So its time to get our there in force. I'll be there riding this week bringing up the rear so if you're worried that you'll get lost, don't.
The course is marked with white paint before and after each turn, with an upside down T pointing in the direction to turn.
These rides are for all members at all levels, from 14 miles per hour average to 21+ MPH.
Here are links to the maps on the interactive Map My Ride site. If you want to print the maps and cue sheets, use the attached files.
To meet at the start, Set your GPS for 33 Johnson Road, North Andover MA . We ride at 7:30AM Sharp.
