I’ll be on a road trip the next two weekends visiting soccer venues far and closer to home. Sunday the 29th I’ll be at Estádio de São in São Miguel, Açores, to watch Santa Clara take on Gil Vicente.
The following weekend I’ll be traveling to Atlanta to watch New England take on United playing the final game of the regular season. This could be the deciding game for New England to qualify for post season play. Mercedes Benz Stadium is a favorite of mine to be in the stands and at the “gulch” for pregame festivities, because every game feels like a Champions League or World Cup match. United is known to out draw the city’s football team more often than not.

Providence Bike Jam. A monthly night ride through the urban streets of Providence, RI. The September ride will be a challenge to top.
An estimate turnout of 40 plus showed for this beautiful clear, warm evening at Burnside Park, downtown. I say estimated because it was impossible to get anyone to stay still for two minutes. It was even worse near the end of the ride when we gathered at the new $22 million dollar pedestrian bridge. The still photographer and I were completely ignored when we tried to gather everyone for a group photo. Two things contributed to make that happen. It was our third party stop and when we stopped at the first two, the common sound was the distinctive “phhhhst” of beer cans being open. Second, the music was blaring and everyone was in party mode, dancing the night away. Well, some were dancing.
This is one of my favorites. It’s a very casual ride through the neighborhoods of Providence, RI. As usual, I’ll be starting and finishing at Ft. Hill in East Providence at 6:30PM. (Set GPS to 1 Mercer St. East Providence, RI). It’s a bit under three miles from Burnside Park, downtown Providence, where the ride begins.
