Since retiring, my life has become a cross of a northern gentleman and a teenager. For instance, yesterday, an early morning 35 mile bike ride with friends, preceded cutting the front lawn and making a trip to the local cemetery to pick up rocks from the debris pile to use for our garden border.
Sue wanted to go out to dinner, but I had a meeting with the Buzzards Bay Coalition to register, and get a CORI application to be a bike guide. I had time before leaving to order a double lobstah roll and a cup of chowder from a local place to satisfy Sue’s addiction.
The group at the Buzzards Bay meeting was a really diverse group of volunteers, signed up to lead the events scheduled for this summer. The Bay Swim, paddle boarding, fishing, kayaking, bike rides, counting of the spawning herring, beachcombing, birding, boating and geocaching to name a few.
One of the most popular bike rides I lead is the “Cape Cod Canal. Both Sides and Both Bridges” is in jeopardy because the sidewalk crossing the Bourne Bridge is under repair.
Below is 35 miles with the Fall River Bike gang.
