Watershed ride registration now open

May 30, 2018

Registration is now open for the 12th annual Buzzards Bay Watershed Ride on September 30.

The annual ride attracts more than 250 cyclists each year for a ride through the coastal scenery of the South Coast. Cyclists can choose from either a 35, 75, or 100-mile ride with varying starting points.

Each of the three routes converge for lunch before ending at Woods Hole. The 100-mile route encompasses the entirety of Buzzards Bay, beginning from Sakonnet Point in Little Compton. The 75-mile route begins at Horseneck Beach, and the 35-mile route begins at Eastover Farm in Rochester.

Cyclists ages 12 and older are welcome. Water and snack stations, clear route markings, food truck lunches at Eastover Farm, and on-the-road bike repair technicians are all offered, an prizes are awarded to riders and teams which raise the most money and other categories.

The event is also a fundraiser, and each cyclist must raise a minimum of $300. Funds raised benefit the Buzzards Bay Coalition’s work to protect land and clean water around Buzzards Bay. Last year, cyclists and their supporters raised more than $155,000 to support the Coalition.
