After watching the forecasts closely
it looks like the weather will be cooperating on Friday so…
There will be a Sunset/Moonlight ride on the East Bay Bike Path on Friday 7/15/22. Moonrise is at 10:46PM so we will probably not see the moon during the entire ride.
Date: Friday 7/15/22.
Location: EBBP off Rt 103 near Del’s Lemonade.
Set you GPS to 65 Child St. Warren R.I.
Departure: 7:45PM promptly
Name: Wednesday’s moon was the
Full Buck Super Moon.
Male deer, which shed their antlers every year, begin to regrow them in July, hence the Native American name for July’s full moon. Some refer to this moon as the thunder moon, due to the summer storms in this month. Other names include the hay moon, after the July hay harvest.
Distance is flexible.
Rain or high winds cancels the ride.
We will ride to Bristol to enjoy the sunset at Colt’s State Park. We will then return to the parking lot. That’s around 10 miles. Those who wish to will continue toward Providence till we decide to turn around.
Turn around point could be as far as India Point Park unless we decide to turn around sooner (or later).
That’s around 30 or 32 miles round trip.
Other routes are also possible.
Bikes should have adequate lighting.
If you have a second headlight as a backup it might come in handy if the first one goes out.
Bring water, snacks, cameras and anything else you might want or need.
Take note that it’s still cooler after sunset. Dress accordingly.
