This is the 17th year of Reid's Ride 28-Mile Bike Ride. Because of social-distancing and other restriction imposed by COVID last year and continuing to this year, we have had to run this and last year's Reid's Ride as Virtual Events. Hopefully in 2022 we'll resume our traditional event as a group bike ride from Lynnfield High School to our finish line activities at Stage Fort Park Gloucester for music, refreshments, awards, raffles and booths.

The Perseid meteor show is an annual astronomy event that happens on Earth between mid- July and late August. In 2021, the Perseids will be peaking on August 12th, with the best viewing being August 11-13! Many meteors will be visible in the night sky as Earth passes through the debris trail left by the passage of comet Sift-Tuttle. This years showers should have up to 15-20 meteors per hour and the best time to view them is the dark hours before dawn. The Perseids this year will have to compete with light from the full moon, which tends to wash out the short-lived streaks of light the meteors create. In years when there’s no moonlight, NASA says, the Perseids typically produce more than 60 shooting stars per hour.
