Each year the Watershed Ride draws avid cyclists, casual riders, families, teams and clubs. Cyclists ages 12 and over are welcome. All funds raised from the Watershed Ride will support the Coalition’s work to protect and restore clean water in and around Buzzards Bay.

Participants can choose between 2 picturesque routes: a 75-mile option that begins at Horseneck Beach in Westport or a 35-mile route that begins in Rochester.  Both finish at Quissett Harbor in Woods Hole. Along the way, riders will enjoy scenic views of Southeastern Massachusetts’ beaches, harbors, rivers, farms, and forests awash in the colors of fall.  Riders will cycle through cities and towns all around the Buzzards Bay region, including Westport, Dartmouth, New Bedford, Fairhaven, Mattapoisett, Acushnet, Rochester, Wareham, Bourne and Falmouth
