Fort to Fort Ride

I got a request to show some out of town friends the area. Many of you know them and they asked me to invite others to join us. It’s last minute, but what else do you have to do?

When: Thursday April 8

Where: Meet at Staples, 17 Plaza Way in Fairhaven, MA

Time: Wheels up at 10:30. Get there before then.


We will ride into New Bedford over the bridge spanning the harbor. While making our way to Fort Rodman, we will briefly check out some of the murals along the route. The route takes us along West Beach into the fort and exit on East Beach. We will ride the elevated bikeway to the middle of the harbor on Buzzards Bay.

On the return to Staples we will visit Fort Phoenix in Fairhaven then ride some of the side streets that show the unique architecture gifted to the town by our benefactor, Henry Huttleston Rogers.

This casual ride will total around 17 flat miles with a few stops for photos.
