There are still a few more bike days to be had this year. Well, actually there are three more. The moon is full tomorrow and it’s short notice, but the gods are serving notice that it’s a beautiful evening for a bike ride.
December 29, 2020
Meet at Staples in Fairhaven for a 4 PM wheels up. (17 Plaza Way. Fairhaven MA)
Light up your bikes to make this a festive ride. I’ll supply the music.
A 12 mile casual ride including the full bike path to Mattapoisett Neck Rd. Fort Phoenix and the quiet side streets of Fairhaven. We will detour off the path in East Fairhaven and take the riders back in time one hundred years riding along the Lopes and Carvalho farms.
Temperature will be in the high 20’s with little wind. Proper dress will insure this is a very comfortable ride.
According to the Old Farmer’s Almanac, the full moon in December is called the Full Cold Moon, and it’s pretty clear why, at least if you live in the Northern Hemisphere’s mid-latitudes. This particular Cold Moon will rise accompanied by Mars, which will be high in the southern skies just after sunset, as well as Jupiter and Saturn, which will be low in the west coming out of the “great conjunction,” which occurred Dec. 21. x
Lets do this.
