Thank You!! Our first ever bike ride fundraiser, Pedal for the Path, was a great success! We look forward to the 2nd Annual Pedal for the Path!
A letter of thanks…
The South Coast Bikeway Alliance would like to thank the 65 riders, 40+ volunteers and many supporters of our first annual Pedal for the Path Fundraiser bike ride, held on Sunday, September 16, 2018. The ride was established to raise funds for the completion of the South Coast Bikeway, specifically the missing connection between New Bedford and Fall River.
The South Coast Bikeway, once realized, will be a 50-mile continuous system of bike paths (or multi-use paths) and bike lanes that will connect Rhode Island to Cape Cod. Cities and towns included in this plan are Swansea, Somerset, Fall River, Westport, Dartmouth, New Bedford, Fairhaven, Mattapoisett, Marion and Wareham. Several segments of the bikeway already exist in Swansea, Fall River, New Bedford, Fairhaven, Mattapoisett and Wareham.
We would like to thank our host venue, Running Brook Vineyards, our ice cream sponsors: Annies Ice Cream Shack, Silverbrook Farmof Acushnet, and Acushnet Creameryat Pier 3, and The Head Town Landing Country Store for providing donuts for all of our riders. A special thank you to Kim Camara of Yesteryear Cyclery, Inc. for providing support for the bicyclists before and along the route. Thank you to the Dartmouth Rotary for providing much needed nourishment along the route and at the finish. Thank you also to Moby Dick Brewing Co., Native Brands CompanyWater, Sylvia GroupInsurance, B4 Printing, Lafrance Hospitality and the United Way of Greater New Bedford.
