Thursday Night South Coast Bikeway Ride in Fall River, MA.

South Coast Bikeway sponsored this ride that was organized by the Fall River, MA. bike gang.   Basically the ride was from Whites restaurant to Faunce Corner Rd and back.  It was a short 17 mile spin just to get together for a group ride. This is the kind of ride that needs to end near a Cafe or Pub to put a crown on the evening.  This stuff is new to these groups and for now they get a pass.

The weekend has two ride choices.  Saturday morning a group of older riders meet at the head of the East Bay Bike Path at Fort Hill in East Providence.  It’s a casual ride to the town of Bristol, R.I. were everyone stops to socialize over a light breakfast before returning to East Providence.  It’s a 27 mile round trip ride.

Sunday is the Narragansett Bay Wheelmen’s weekly ride.  Starting at Seakonk High School, NBW has arrowed 15/28/50 mile options.  Click HERE for the August Schedule of rides.CLICK HERE for the map and a little more info.
