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 8/12/22.
The full moon is on Thursday the day before. Moonrise is at 8:44PM so we’ll probably get to see the moon.
Date: Friday 8/12/22.
Location: EBBP off Rt 103 near Del’s Lemonade.
Set your GPS to 65 Child St. Warren R.I.
Departure: 7:00PM promptly
Name: Thursday’s moon is the Full Sturgeon Moon.
North American fishing tribes called August’s full moon the sturgeon moon since the species appeared in number during this month. It’s also been called the green corn moon, the grain moon, and the red moon for the reddish hue it often takes on in the summer haze.
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.
