Full Worm Moon Bike on the Cape Cod Canal

It’s going to be a beautiful late afternoon for a bike ride.  The ride begins at 5 PM and will finish  by riding the canal bike path just as it begins to get dark. It’s fun, it’s casual and it’s very easy.

Start time: 5 PM.  Contact leader to register paulbcurrier@comcast.net

Please arrive with tires and riders pumped and ready to roll. Helmets, water, spare tube required; pump and tools would be nice. Cancellation/rescheduling sent to registered riders only.

 

We’ll start in the large parking lot on the canal in Sandwich in front of the Coast Guard Station.  Take Freezer Rd. to Ed Moffit Drive past the Pilot House to the lot.  Park close to Ed M. Drive in my reserved spots (marked “P”) and leave the canal scenic spaces for the canal sunset viewers.

We’ll cycle the canal and streets to the private Colony of Tahanto and return along Shore Road and perhaps through Gray Gables and Mashnee Island for sunset at Tidal Flats Recreation Area across the canal from MMA.   Return along the canal with stops possibly at the RR Bridge for the Energy Train and Aptuxet Trading Post/ President Cleveland’s personal railroad station.

Full Worm Moon – March As the temperature begins to warm and the ground begins to thaw, earthworm casts appear, heralding the return of the robins. The more northern tribes knew this Moon as the Full Crow Moon, when the cawing of crows signaled the end of winter; or the Full Crust Moon, because the snow cover becomes crusted from thawing by day and freezing at night. The Full Sap Moon, marking the time of tapping maple trees, is another variation. To the settlers, it was also known as the Lenten Moon, and was considered to be the last full Moon of winter.

Busy New Bedford, Ma. harbor.

New Bedford is a city in Bristol County, Massachusetts, United States. As of the 2010 census, the city had a total population of 95,072, making it the sixth-largest city in Massachusetts. New Bedford is nicknamed “The Whaling City” because it was one of the world’s most important whaling ports in the nineteenth century, along with Nantucket, Massachusetts and New London, Connecticut.

The Port of New Bedford has been the nation’s number one most valuable fishing port since 2001.

I decided bike to the fitness center for lower body workout with the personal trainer.  It’s usually a class of 3 or 4 in attendance.  When the trainer is a no show, as happened today, I do the workout on my own.  When that happens, I get a much tougher routine done.  Today was three sets of four different exercises with no rest between sets. Leg press , sumo squats, lunges with weights, and  leg extensions.  All with heavy weights. After 15 minutes, I have a good sweat going on. The second 15 minutes is Kettle bells swings, suitcase squats with kettle bells and lunges.

After the training session, I got on the bike for a ride around the city.  I have to admit that it was a slog riding after such a heavy leg workout. It made the cardio more difficult riding with tired legs.  After riding around and taking photos for a while, it was time for lunch.  I walked in, ordered, got my food delivered to an outside table and ate.  That whole process took about 15 minutes.  When I reentered the cafe to recycle the paper waste, the line to order was out the door.  It’s all in the timing I suppose. 22-IMG_0365

Below is what me camera saw on today’s ride. I have an early appointment to get my hair done tomorrow, and I’ll most likely again ride with my camera as my companion.
