Easter. The first Sunday after the first full moon following the Spring Equinox. For some it’s a religious thing. For people like me who follow the true meaning, it’s the celebration of new and abundant life, celebrated by the Lilly (new) and the rabbit (abundant). It’s also the beginning of the cycling season. Here we go.
There will be a Evening/Moonlight ride on the East Bay Bike Path on Saturday 3/31/18.
I know that we missed the January Blue Moon, but this is our second chance to ride on an event that happens only “once in a Blue Moon”. Join the fun in this Spring Moonlight Ride.
Date: Saturday 3/31/18. Location: EBBP off Rt 103 near Del’s Lemonade. Time: Arrive: 5:45PM
Departure: 6:00PM promptly / Sunset: 7:09PM / Moonrise: 7:26PM / Distance is flexible.
Rain, snow or extreme weather cancels the ride.
We will ride toward Providence till we decide to turn around. Turn around point will probably be India Point Park unless we decide to turn around sooner (or later). That’s around 22 or 23 miles round ntrip.
Bikes should have adequate lighting. If you have a second headlight as a backup that might come in handy if the first one goes out. Bring water, snacks, cameras and anything else you might want or need. Helmets are highly recommended.
Take note that it is cooler after sunset and dress accordingly.
Registration for the 2018 round is now open at http://30DOB.com.

April 4: Wednesday Night Casual Rides
The rides will coincide with the 30 days of biking pledge. Our first ride will be on April 4th. This year there will be two starting points. Staples in Fairhaven, for those who want a 20 mile loop, and the Y in New Bedford for a shorter 10 mile casual ride. New riders are always welcome and we ride at around a 10 mph pace.
