Buzzards Bay Watershed Ride Fundraiser

October 2 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Need some time off? Enjoy the scenic landscapes of Southeastern Massachusetts in and around New Bedford while supporting the protection of watershed lands and clean water on the Buzzards Bay Watershed Ride.

Cyclists fundraise to protect clean water by supporting the Buzzards Bay Coalition’s work across land protection, science, advocacy, and education. Team participation is welcome and encouraged to help #SAVEBUZZARDSBAY!

Choose your own adventure from the 100-mile, 75-mile, or 35-mile overlapping cycling routes that ride past coastal farmlands, windswept beaches, cranberry bogs, and scenic harbors between Rhode Island and Cape Cod. Register and choose your ride here.

All riders are fully supported with local food and beverages all day, welcoming volunteers, and SAG wagons with ace bike mechanics and first aid. Registration fee includes five water stops, a hearty food truck lunch, and a finish line celebration in beautiful Woods Hole.


  • Pay What You Can pricing – Riders may now choose to pay a discounted fee. Simply use one of the discount codes provided during registration. You can also sponsor another rider by making an additional gift. All riders must still meet the $300 fundraising minimum.
  • Later start – 100 mile riders start at 9 am, 75 mile riders start at 10 am, and 35 mile riders start at 1 pm

SWAG: Each rider receives a modern cut event t-shirt and a signature 2022 “Bike for Clean Water” finisher’s pint glass, plus additional swag for top fundraisers and teams.
