The Narragansett Bay Wheelmen do a large club ride every Sunday. This week they are in Glocester, RI offering 30-45-69 mile options. It’s titled the Hill and Gully, a spectacularly scenic and challenging ride through magnificent rolling countryside, including two high open ridges with unsurpassed views and long descents.

Many groups were represented in today’s Fort to Fort ride. It’s one of the favorite area casual rides. It’s an 18 mile round trip from Fairhaven, MA into and around the peninsula of New Bedford, MA. The weather couldn’t have been better offering a sun shining, 80 degree, low humidity morning.
For the third time this season, we managed to stumble upon a triathlon. We did manage however, to share the roads gracefully with the event, and it was nothing but smiles from both groups. The ride also included a 12 mile extension to Ned’s Point light in Mattapoisett.
Be sure to check out Brian’s photos after watching the video.

The ride was announced. Meet at Westport Middle School for a 9 AM bike ride through the quiet country road to Horseneck Beach. We rode past Wesport Rivers Vineyard, Buzzards Bay Brewing, a pig farm, protected wildlife preserves and Horseneck State Beach. On the return leg while crossing the bridge over the Westport River someone yelled, “did anyone see that sign that says no bikes on the bridge?” “Yup, what about it?”

There are only a handful of riders on any given Wednesday night, but we are determined to keep it up until the middle of August at least.
Our next ride is Friday when we meet at Stop and Shop in Fairhaven and ride to Pier Three in New Bedford for the free Friday Night Summer Music Series. A really good funk band is playing this week. Beer, wine, ice cream and snacks are sold at the venue. Or you can bring your own, as I do.
Wednesday night casual. Meet at the Moby Dick Brewing Co on Union St for the 6 PM start. Park across the street at Da Y if your so inclined. It’s a 7 mile casual pace around the peninsula of New Bedford. We ride over both elevated walkways. On the west side we ride along Clark’s Cove into Ft. Rodman and loop past Fort Taber before joining the bike path along Buzzard’s Bay. The rides concludes back at the brewery where every one is welcome to stop in for a cold one and maybe a snack.
Meet at Stop and Shop in Fairhaven for the 4.5 mile ride to Friday Night Concert on Pier 3 in New Bedford featuring E-Water Band, a 7-piece Funk/Dance/Party band that includes drums, bass guitar, rhythm guitar, saxophone, keyboards and very powerful female and male vocalists that deliver a song like it was their own.
