Month: June 2017
Social Rides at a social pace every Wednesday.
Ride to the south end of the city around the peninsula over both harbor walks and into Fort Rodman.
All biking skill levels are welcome, no one’ll be left behind. Expect a joyful-conversational pace of 10 mph, but the group will determine our speed. The rides will begin and end at Moby Dick Brewery Union and South Water in New Bedford.
It took a month to get an appointment to bring my new RV into the shop for some warranty work. It’s something a couple of RV friends offered to correct, but hey, it’s under warranty. Might as well use it.
I brought along my bike an intended to go for a long ride while waiting for the work to be done. After checking in I thought I heard the guy say, “give us a call in a couple of weeks to check on the progress.” I told him that I was leaving for a trip on Sunday and I would have to make other arrangements. He said “come in Saturday, it may be done.” We’ll see.
I did get to do a long ride. It was 30 miles home on a route that I rode often when I commuted to work. Occasionally on a Friday, I would drive to work, ride the 30 miles home, and on Saturday, ride back to the office to retrieve my car. It’s a pretty swell route as you will see on the video. Very low traffic country roads, and a pretty old cemetery.
Meet at Moby Dick Brewing on Union St. in New Bedford for a 6 PM start. All levels of riders are welcome for this casual paced ride. The ride ends at the Brewery and everyone is invited to the social inside.
During my bike ride I heard lots of gun fire. But as the man said, It’s all Hollywood blanks in the guns and artillery.
We never know how many will show. The route is the same every week and the ending at the Moby Dick Brewing Co. is always the best part of the social ride.
