South Coast Bikeway Summit

Last night was the annual South Coast Bikeway Summit in New Bedford, MA.  I was asked to lead a ride for those who wanted to bike to the “bike summit”.  This is my third year volunteering to do this ride.  No one has ever shown up to ride with me.  I got a few e-mails asking about the route and times.  It was a beautiful late afternoon to ride.  38F, no wind and sunny at the 4:30 PM start.  The temperature promised to hold and the wind had no intent on picking up before the 7:30 PM return ride.  With all that, I wondered, “will anyone show besides Geoff?”  No one did. Geoff was there, but we did not see each other before I rode off.  He did call me and we were able to hook up about a mile down the road.

It was a really nice ride that took us over the new elevated walk/bike way built on top of the hurricane barrier at West Beach.  The return night ride took us over the walk/bike way on East Beach. (Fort Rodman is at the point of the New Bedford peninsula that in my soccer pre season training days was a very pretty four mile loop along Buzzard’s Bay and Clark’s Cove).
