First Weekend of June

The first weekend of June is upon us. It is starting to warm. It took a while for the temperature to reach some of the normal season highs.

The Saturday ride will be from Norwell High at 8 AM to beat the heat. Be ready to roll at 8 AM, sharp.

Weekend update 05-16-16

Good morning!

We have a few things planned for this weekend.  I spoke with Mike.  Mike will lead a ride from Norwell at 9 AM on Saturday.  This ride follows our Coastal Route.

We will have a ride from Cutler Park in Needham at 9 AM on Saturday.  This ride will complete 42 miles in the Dover/sherborn loop.  We will try to have some more rides with more length as we prepare for the P2P in June.

Thanks,

Bill

Route Map
Route Map

https://www.strava.com/routes/4969753 has the new map for the route. This year will be different from the last few years. We will take our time on this route. The difficulty level is not high. There are some bits with moderate traffic.

We will roll into Edgartown. We will pass by the Jaws Bridge on the way to Edgartown.

We will take the Middle road on the way to the western part of the island. This is one of the more scenic spots and it features good pavement.

We will have some coastal riding around the area of the Native American reservation. We will stop for lunch at the reservation.

Please ask any questions. Ask mentioned previously it is recommended that you park on the Shining Sea Bike Path and ride to the ferry building. This will take less time than trying to ride the bus from a ferry parking lot.

We will take the 3:45PM ferry from Oak Bluffs to return at approximately 4:30PM. An earlier ferry will run from Vineyard Haven at 2:30, if we make that ferry.

Thanks,

Bill

Weekend up date 05-14-16

We are almost ready with the new club jersey design.  It will complement the old design.  So you can mix and match the shorts and jerseys from different years.

Here is a photo of the group from the Saturday ride from Marshfield.  We do this route once per a month.  It rolls from the Furnace Brook Middle School.  See the ride schedule.  New members are welcome.
