This mall wasn't here five years ago,when I did this ride last.
Unbelievable the way people dump their trash anywhere.
I must have gone by 50 cranberry bogs.
The first of many climbs in the park.
A lot of tree's were getting trimmed around the Mayflower area.
Heading back into the park from Plymouth.
I did this ride Saturday because Sunday,it was going to rain. It was a perfect day for a ride and very scenic. I never turned on my timer for the gps,so I only have the last half of my ride on Garmin Connect.
The new extension will run parallel with Daggett Ave,along the river.
Bike path in Slater Park.
Another washed out road from the flood,Woodward ave.
I headed down to Central ave in Pawtucket to check out the the house they tore down a couple of weeks ago. It's going to become a parking lot for the next extension of the Ten Mile River bike path. It's going to add about one mile to the existing path in Slater Park. No word when actual construction will start. Fifty minutes into my ride my GPS battery went dead,so the route isn't complete on Garmin Connect.
This is the newest section going over the marsh land.
Martin street bridge.
Some of the flood damage on the path.
I met John at the parking lot across from Slater Mill and City Hall in Pawtucket. We were going to attempt to ride up to the bike path and back before dark. It wasn't long before we ran into a problem on Branch street, it was gated off and all torn up. We went around the gate and rode on it anyway but soon came to a dead end. We ended up walking up an embankment behind a mill and got back on route that way. We lost a lot of time on Branch street so we weren't able to do the whole bike path up to Woonsocket.
Here's where Tiffany got nailed in the shin by the goalie.
Brandeis played five 30 minute games yesterday. It was their Spring Tournament they have every year. Tiffany ended up with four goals and a killer bone bruise on her shin from the last game of the day.
This is an amazing story in the New York Times. Click on the link and read about it and make sure you watch the two video's. The second one shows him riding his bicycle and he even stands up on his pedals at one point, to get more power. http://www.nytimes.com/2010/04/01/health/01parkinsons.html
