There are a few local one day bike events that any biker rider worth their salt should have on their to do list.  There is one local “bucket list” ride that everyone should do at least once.

Night Ride

Yesterday was such a great riding day but I had things to do that prevented me from doing a long ride.  There was a  gathering at the Buzzards Bay Coalition headquarters for the volunteers beginning a 5 PM.  I was not in a rush to get there on time thinking it was one of those casual party type events. Little did I know that it was also a meeting with guest speakers and scientists.

I didn’t get to the function till around 5:30 and lo and behold,  there was only a pittance of food left on the buffet table.  I had to scrape the tidbits from two salad bowls to have something.  There was plenty of cake though, thanks to Marie Antoinette. On the bright side, Sam Adams came through with plenty of larger which allowed me to ride the 6 miles home imitating a pinball machines silver orb.  Good thing I didn’t drive to the function.

Today is a 30 mile fitness ride on one of my regular routes.  I think I have photos in stock of just about every building, tree, animal and whatever, so I will only have my little point an shoot emergency camera in case something unusual gets my attention.   I’m also putting this on Strava so I don’t want to have one of those meager 18 MPH averages speed rides broadcast to the world.

Save The Bay Bike Ride

Watershead Ride

Bike for clean water at Buzzards Bay Watershed Ride on Oct. 4

10 towns from Westport to Woods Hole are on the Watershed Ride route.

I got to do the whole 75 miles with a caveat.  I was the SAG mechanic, and did  it in my car.  It was the easiest 75 mile bike ride I have done since last year.   Fun too.

All the photos are on Flickr HERE.  Feel free to use any or all of them for your website.

Buzzards Bay Swim

There was a rally for the volunteers for Saturday’s Buzzard Bay Swim. It was too good an evening not to ride my bike the four miles to the gathering and the waterfront was abuzz with activity.

It was a quiet ride home but I did stop at the salt marsh to watch all the activity in the water. Duck families, egrets, lots of small birds like robins, starlings and others scrambling for a last minute meal, making a racket with their screams. Needless to say, the nine feet of snow we had on the ground a few short weeks ago is nothing but a fond memory.
