Tour de Creme Route Bike Ride

Monday June 17.  46 or 30 mile ride.  We will decide at the parking lot.

Meet at the Fairhaven Rec Center Next to Stop and Shop.  (227 Huttleston Ave)
CLICK HERE for map. This is a change from the usual Staples meeting place because of construction in the Staples lot. It’s easier too.

Time:  Gather at 8:15 for an 8:30 wheels up.

This is an on road 46 miles ride using the Mattapoisett Land Trust’s “Tour de Creme  route and arrows.  There are some spectacular sights and at least four ice cream shops on the route.  There are two near the end of the ride if the group wants to stop for a snack or maybe even lunch. Think lobstah and chowdah.  We’ll decide then.  There is a plethora of really good locally owned eateries close to the Rec center.  There is also junk food places like McDonald’s if that’s your preference.  Or you can go home and cook your own.

*****NOTES*****

This is a 46 mile route.   We will gather twice at bail out spots.  If the group wants to shorten the ride we will have two chances to do that.

Our final gathering spot is Captain Bonny’s Ice Cream on New Bedford Rd.  Here is where we deviate from the arrowed route.
