Cider FEST

Saturday, Oct. 7 th

Granite State Wheelmen End of Season Celebration !

Join us for a fall ride or just pick apples. Help make apple cider & enjoy a BBQ on Sunday, October 7 h . Come rain or shine.

BIKE - Bike rides start from Jeff & Donna's place, 181 Leavitt Road in Belmont, NH at 10am. We'll have Cue sheets for several routes. Plan to stay after the ride for a BBQ & press cider and pick apples to take home. Families are welcome (they can pick while you ride!).

PICK&PRESS& BBQ – If you just want to pick apples and make cider, come between 10am and 2pm. We'll take turns operating the hand crank cider press. We'll start up the grill and the music around 1PM. Bring an instrument or plan to sing along to blue grass music led by our wonderful neighbors. Bring plastic sacks for apples and a clean milk jug & cap for cider. If you're staying for the BBQ, bring a salad, or a side dish and a folding chair. Our apple varieties are Northern Spy, Delicious, Cortland & Macintosh . We don't spray, so don't expect “perfect” apples.

Directions to 181 Leavitt Rd. in Belmont, NH : From the south, take Highway 106 north toward Laconia and turn right (east) on Leavitt Road. Follow Leavitt Road about a mile and watch for the mail box marked 181 on the left. Turn north into the driveway across from the Smith Orchard. It is about 850 feet back to the red house. From the north, take 106 or 107 to Leavitt Road in Belmont. We are right across the road from the Smith U-Pick Orchard. Parking near house.
