New Pawcatuck Ride!   Sat., June 23, 2018

Come join me in raising some money for the Pawcatuck Neighborhood Center and riding our bicycles for one hundred miles along the coast of CT and RI this summer.  This will be an unsponsored & unsupported ride in order to keep expenses down.  We’ll have adventure, see great views, and count the roadkill along the route!  More details coming soon so keep your eyes open for information.  Looking for riders and volunteers for what little can be offered such as a SAG and water stops maybe a pbj or two.  Shorter rides may be offered if enough people are interested.
