Autumn Eqinox Bike Ride

Welcome the Autumn Equinox with a Monday evening bike ride. Tonight Sept 22.

Where:   Meet at Corks Wine and Tapas Bar at the bottom of Union St. in New Bedford.

Parking anywhere downtown New Bedford or on Pier 3 Across from Corks.

Time:   Pedaling begins at 6PM

Route:   A 12.9 mile loop of Fairhaven and Mattapoisett:

The ride will be 95% off road following the Phoenix Bike Path to  Mattapoisett. The turn around spot is the bridge near  Camp Massasoit.  The return will take us off the path to travel back 200 years in time and ride through the farmlands of East Fairhaven, (around 1 mile of quiet road), before returning to the path at Gillette Rd.

The path will dump us at Fort St. and we will ride to Fort Phoenix and continue on the hurricane barrier to the middle of New Bedford Harbor. 

We will backtrack over the bridge to Corks for great Tapas and drink if you are so inclined.
Bring your camera.  There will be some spectacular photo opportunities.
