Back In The Saddle

Sao Miguel Acores, Portugal

I have been traveling, seems like forever. Colorado, Portugal, Atlanta and I did have one more trip planned for Thursday, flying to Florida, but that got canceled.   So without further procrastination, I’m finally back on the bike.  Probably tomorrow.  Next Saturday October 19, should be a hoot with the first of three Halloween themed rides.  (I’ll post about them Monday.) The fun begins with a full moon ride, but I have two to from which to choose.  Both in Rhode Island and I’m strongly leaning to Newport, just for a change from the usual full moon ride with  The Fall River Bike gang, who normally ride on the Friday closest to the Full Moon. A three day nor’easter kind of put the kibosh on that, forcing a date change.

Fall River Bike Committee Full Moon Ride

Due to the inclement weather, Friday night’s bike ride has been rescheduled – here is the information:

Moonlight Bike Ride –

The full moon actually is on Sunday the 13th. Sunset is at 6:07PM. Moonrise will be 20 minutes later at 6:27PM.

The Details: Date: Sunday 10/13/19. — Location: EBBP off Rt 103 near Del’s Lemonade. Time: Arrive: 5:30PM
Departure: 5:45PM promptly Sunset: 6:07PM Moonrise: 6:27PM
Name: Full Hunter’s Moon Distance is flexible.

Rain 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 trip.

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 if you want. but it’s a bike path fercryinoutloud. Take note that it is cooler after sunset and dress accordingly.

This is a leisurely ride but you must be comfortable riding 14 miles on a road shared with other vehicles. Please bring a bicycle, helmet, head light and water bottle. Yes, all are required! As is advance registration – so head straight to the signup form here.
