Tripple-State Gallop [MA] Sat 8/1/20 8:30 am


Meet Greg at 8:30 am for breakfast at "Breakfast at Stephanies", 3 Farm St, Upton, MA. 

After our bellies are full, we will travel to an olde tyme country store in Chepachet, RI called Brown & Hopkins Country Store to stock up on penny candy and browse the store. 

Following some of the best roads in CT we meander through NE CT before heading north for lunch in Palmer MA at a restored railroad station, now a restaurant called Steaming Tender. 

After lunch you are on your own to make you way home or continue exploring.

We had about 15 attendees split into 2 groups.  Thank you Lyle Cooper for leading the second group.  Weather was great albeit a bit on the warm side but we were able to keep moving on country roads.  Traffic was minimal.  Finding a restroom in downtown Chepachet was not possible so we had to ride on with slightly full bladders! 
Great to meet Michael Brown who traveled all the way from VA and new to us - Gabe and Kathy Calvo from CT.
