A Biking and Football Weekend.

Going Up
Hix Bridge Road climb.

Saturday was blustery, damp and chilly for the 10AM start to the Fairhaven Ma. Bike ride celebrating National Bike Month.  I did a bit of tweaking to the route because of a late start and ended up doing 37 miles.

Sunday morning was a beautiful 70 degree, calm, sunny day for the Narragansett Bay Wheelmen ride in Westport, Ma.  I chose the 25 mile option and started an hour before the official starting time in order to get home before noon.

Drive Time
30 minutes from Providence
This ride is considered to be one of the club’s best, rolling down the Westport waterway to scenic Horseneck Beach.

I was able to get home in time to see City win the Premier League Title. I chose teams by their managers being on that side of the house for so many years.  It was also a big football day locally with the Revolution thumping the league leaders Seattle Sounders, that featured the ex-Rev and Fulham FC star Clint Dempsey by a score of 5-0.

Training is going well for my six day mini tour next month riding in West Virginia, Pennsylvania and Maryland
