This is a popular ride for our group. The base ride is 16 miles, but if it’s a nice day, some of the riders like to continue on to add a few miles, and we did that.
We started with 12 riders but on the third head count, we had 10. The two missing were new to the ride and we had made multiple turns during this narrated ride through the historic district of Fairhaven. I was about to turn back, but those who knew the lost couple, assured me that they would be OK because one was a long time, avid rider. My sincere apologies to both.
I’ll be on the road with the band for two months making this the last ride I’ll be leading this year. There will be videos of our travels, and there will surely be a few bike adventures during our adventures.
We had some great turnouts for many and there were a couple of group rides I did solo. Till next year.
Sunday August 5th
Meet at Staples in Fairhaven at 8:45 for a 9 AM start.
This is a popular flat 17 mile ride, mostly on bike paths, around the peninsula of New Bedford into Fort Rodman/Fort Taber. The return takes us over the elevated bike way on the east side of the peninsula and continues to the middle of the harbor on the New Bedford Side.
We continue over the bridge into Fairhaven to visit Fort Phoenix and ride again to the center of the harbor on the Fairhaven side. Two miles back to Staples and we are done.
