About this Sunday’s Ride


NBW #088 Scramble Metric
Click here to print

Why this ride is special


  • The Scramble Metric is an old NBW favorite; it’s scenic, fairly flat, and mostly shady. The route travels north through the woods and farms of Norton, Wrentham and Norfolk returning through Franklin & Sheldonville. The short loops of this ride are good rides for beginners.
  • Ray Foulkes revised the longer loops of this ride this year to avoid traffic, and go by his house. After all, all arrowers want a ride to go by their home…
  • The reservoir and farm scenery in Sheldonville and Attleboro

Towns & Villages we travel through


Seekonk – Rehoboth – Norton – Mansfield – Wrentham – Franklin – Sheldonville – Cumberland – North Attleboro – Adamsdale – Plainville – Attleboro – Rumford
