MLK and Boomer Bike Ride

The weather prevented me from riding into New Bedford, MA to map a route for the MLK ride on Monday. I reached out to Civatron at the New Bedford Starchasers and he came through brilliantly. Everything you need to know and more about our route is HERE. p.s. Boomer is a Pilot in the NB Starchaser fleet. He completes his 70th trip around the sun on MLK day January 18, 2021. On the following day, he begins his 71st trip circumnavigating Sol. “I am proud to celebrate my birthday with the great American, Martin Luther King” said Boomer. Come join us on a bike ride. Empanadas provided by Boomer.
