The Bailey Island Ride Is Back – August 20, 2016

The Bailey Island ride is still on for Saturday, August 20th, 2016. This replaces the regular Saturday ride out of West Falmouth.

Due to several requests we will do the ride in reverse of past years. We will ride to Bailey Island, have lunch, then take the ferry to Portland. The total distance is about 50 miles. The ferry leaves at 2 PM and arrives in Portland at 3:45 PM. This is an all day affair.

We will start at the Northgate Shopping Center in the parking lot to the right of Shaws (as you face Shaws) at 8:00 AM for those who live nearby. We will ride (about 10 miles) to the Hannaford shopping center on route 1 in Yarmouth where we will meet up with those who live in the Yarmouth area. We will meet in the
far left side of the parking lot as you face Hannaford’s (usual starting location for the Wednesday evening weekly ride). We will leave Yarmouth for Bailey Island (about 30 miles) at 9:00 AM. We should arrive by noon for lunch, then leave on the 2:00 PM ferry.

Cost for the ferry, one way plus bike, is $24.50. Since we pay on the boat they only accept cash or check.

After the ferry ride people return home individually if they like, or in groups back to either Northgate Shopping Center or Yarmouth.

Ride sheets will be available at each starting point.

Please let me know if you are going and where you would like to start.

If the weather is bad I will notify any cancellation via e-mail and Facebook.

There is no rain date.
