|The route to Mag Woods: 20 mins by bike|
I also thought about the potential use of Magnolia Woods for a cyclocross race: there's parking, grass, pavement, some elevation gain. Perhaps in the future? The Gran Prix of Gloucester race site at Stage Fort Park is spectacular, and a perfectly situated venue. There may come a time, however, when we want an additional, more underground type race.
Magnolia Bike Club is working on creating a pump track at Magnolia Woods. Recreation in Gloucester takes many forms: soccer, cycling, football, baseball, sailing, dog-walking. When people enjoy the land, they are more likely to provide stewardship of that land.
By the afternoon I was ready to cool off at the beach. I headed over to Good Harbor on my bike & soaked up the sun. What a glorious day in Gloucester. I love riding in the summer: the freedom, the automatic breeze, the exercise, the ease. There were a lot of folks out on their bikes: roadies, tourists with hybrids, and beachgoers. Great minds think alike!
