Don't Forget... September 6, 2011

Just a reminder, this past Monday was Labor day so this outfit will no longer be appropriate on your daily commute: whitecyclist2




With the shorter days and the cooler temperatures of fall, you might consider something more along these lines:lumberjack











 Of course, this fashion-forward young man is fueling up for the Woony River Ride.  If you'd like to meet him and other local cyclists while supporting a great local organization, you might sign up to ride with Team Legend for this non competitive event which takes place Saturday September 24.  Maybe you can't make it that day to ride...Donate here.

Most of us know the Woonasquatucket as the waterway that flows quietly through the concrete and asphalt of downtown, but there's a diverse and vibrant river out there that you might want to get to know.  This ride explores the entire watershed from downtown Providence, through Olneyville, out along the Woonasquatucket River Bike Path, along roads in Johnston, Smithfield and North Smithfield, and back.   This is the second time the Woonasquatucket Watershed Council  has run this event to help fund the good work they have been doing for many years keeping the Woonasquatucket habitat clean and livable for all of us who live on it, in it, or near it.
