NBW Ride Starting In New Bedford

I’ll be on tour for the next week so there will be no local ride info posted here. I will however be posting photos and stories of our bike ride from Pittsburgh to Washington DC beginning on Sunday night.

The Narragansett Bay Wheelmen’s Sunday ride will start in New Bedford this week. It’s a great chance for some of our local “challenge” riders to do a group ride. There is a place for everyone regardless of your level of riding.

The usual Saturday morning Cafe Ride is another easy ride to build up those “challenge” miles. Either or both are open to everyone.
