Thirty Five Miles In Dartmouth

Sat with Nick 001

It was built as a recovery ride in order not to scare people away.  No one believed me so only two of us showed for this ride of the back roads of Dartmouth, MA. We made a few stops to take in the sights, eat lunch and have ice cream.  It was a lot of new territory for my riding partner Nicolas and the general consensus is that it was a good route.

Tomorrow we will be riding with a couple of hundred friends when we join the Narragansett Bay Wheelmen on the Bikework’s Swansea Ride with 15-25 & 50 mile options. I have a feeling our group may split up for this one, some doing the 50 but most doing the 25. We’ll see. It’s a 10 AM Start.
