Swansea/Somerset/Warren Interstate Bike Ride, October 15th

"In continuing to raise awareness for the planned South Coast Bikeway,SRPEDD hosted a bike ride through Swansea, Somerset and Warren on Saturday, October 15th at 10am. The ride was approximately 23 miles long and began and ended at the Hugh Cole School at 50 Aslyum Road in Warren, with a break and refreshments at Pierce Playground in Somerset. The route took advantage of the newly constructed Warren Bike Path as well as the Swansea Bike Path and bike lane network. The overall route  mirrored a segment of the South Coast Bikeway and also the southern end of the Taunton River Trail in Somerset, another regional bikeway planned in SRPEDD’s Southeastern Massachusetts Bicycle Plan."

 High sustained winds with gusts exceeding 50MPH and hills.  Lots of hills.  I thought I was going to need defibrillation..

Hold onto your hat with the cross winds here.

  1. Swansea has a beautiful town hall. I always love taking pictures of the town hall/library because you get a feeling of the town by those architectural infrastructure.

    I am going biking today, even though those strong winds has kept me home this past two days. Our winds are about 25 mph.
