Ned's Point Light
Ned’s Point Light Mattapoisett
Sunday – August 2, 2015 – John Sullivan’s Mattapoisett / Marion 30 mile loop
Meetup is at 8:15am at the Stop & Shop parking lot on Route 6 in Fairhaven. Take 195 East – Take Exit 18 in Fairhaven to Route 240.
Follow Route 240 and cross Route 6. Stop and Shop driveway is on the left. Make sure to park away from the store toward Route 6.
The ride starts at 8:30am – This ride is for the experienced road cyclist since most of the ride will be on the road. We will utilize the Fairhaven Bike Path just a bit.
Here is a link to the route:  For the most part the route is relatively flat. The mileage is like riding the East Bay Bike Path with a side trip into Colt State Park.  Our average speed will be 10-14 MPH.  We will set catch up stops for the slower riders. No one will be dropped.
This ride will take us to the Camp Massasoit grounds where we will dodge golf drives as we make our way to rt 6.  A couple of hundred yards on rt 6 will bring us to Mattapoisett center and a short ride to Ned’s Point light house.  Our next stop after a few miles will be Tabor Academy and a short ride around the center of Marion.  We will return on the back roads of Rochester and stop at Plumb Corner for snacks before the final push back to Fairhaven.  
As always helmets are highly recommended – Make sure to bring water and a snack.
