Today was a short ride to the coastal town of Mattapoisett, Ma via the Phoenix Bike Trail. The trail ends at the Reservation golf course where the road slices through the middle of the course. To play one hole, the golfer needs to drive his shot over the main road to the fairway. It's a short ride up Reservation Rd to Rt 6. Turn right onto Rt 6 and it's a short ride to get to the quiet streets of Mattapoisett center and the waterfront. 

To get the most out of this ride, continue on Water street past the harbor to Ned's Point. After a short visit to the lighthouse, backtrack to North Street, cross rt 6,and it's a short ride to a left turn on Park St. Park St turns to Acushnet Rd and from there its a flat ride back to Fairhaven. Acushnet Rd turns into New Boston Rd at the Fairhaven line.
