This ride will start at the picturesque and historic town of Guilford, CT before heading west shadowing the shoreline of Branford through the town center, and then heading up North through Guilford again. We’ll take a mix of rural routes and back country roads heading north into Durham before we make our way in a mostly easterly direction through Chester and into East Haddam where we’ll stop at Gillette’s Castle for a break. We’ll then head North up toward Colchester via Devil’s Hopyard for a quick visit before we be head north into Moodus/Westchester.
