CAUTION – CONSTRUCTION
Sources tell us that there is some construction going on
some of our favorites roads to bike or travel.
Night work is being done on Rt 20 in Northborough (the latest
report was that it was just around Wegman’s).
So you may encounter detours on trying to get to Boroughs YMCA.
Rt 70 from Clinton (you know the Dam Hill) towards Boylston is having drain work and tree removal done. So there are many areas of a 1-lane road.
TEAM UNIFORM UPDATE
The team uniforms
will be through Zoca Gear. Dates coming
soon on when the fit kit will be in for trying on items for sizing purposes and
when the online store will be open for ordering uniforms
