Day 6 of the 30 days of biking challenge. I has to lollygag this morning waiting for the temperature to become somewhat reasonable for April.  I decided to try some new areas in the city, (New Bedford, MA) and things worked out pretty well.

I ran into Charlie, a fellow daily bike rider, downtown.  He was also riding north today and invited me along.  Charlie does a lot more riding in the city so he knows the “Secret Places“. It was a show-ish ride and we made quite a few stops that presented pretty good photo opportunities.  Continue reading “Riding With Charlie”

Mark Your Calender. Rails to Trails Opening Day

Opening Day for Trails on April 16!

All you need to do to take part in Opening Day is just get out on your local trail. How easy is that?!

Be sure to use the hashtag #RTCOpeningDay, and share your photos and posts of your trail outing. And of course, get your friends on board! (We think a day on the trail with friends is just that much more fun.) Send them to railstotrails.org/openingday.

I will be riding from Ft Hill (Corner of Lyon St and Veterans Memorial Parkway) in East Providence to Warren R I. with a 9 AM start.  There we will stop at the Coffee Depot for a snack or light breakfast before returning back to Fort Hill.  The Cafe Tour people will be  riding to Bristol Bagel in that town if you want to do the end to end ride of the East Bay Bike Path.
