CT: Fairfield County- Fairfield to Bridgeport (Biking)

A beautiful just into Fall day in the mid 70s while still awaiting the fall colors, a bike ride along the now available beaches was a good way to go.

I started at Jennings Beach in Fairfield (880 S Benson Road). Once it gets past Labor Day you can park in the lot. I saw the Bridgeport lighthouse from a far and decided that would be my goal for the day.

From there I followed the East Coast Greenway signs along the shoreline roads and biked to St Marys By the Sea. I walked my bike along the boardwalk.

Captains Cove, Bridgeport

Soon thereafter, I noticed some other bikers turn into an area called Captains cove so I followed out of curiosity. What fun to find all these cute little stores and a nice restaurant by the water. Turns out it was their last day of the season.

Seaside Park, Bridgeport

Continuing to follow the bike route signs, I arrived to Seaside park. I rode down to the fishing pier and was taken by the twinkling waters, sailboats and boardwalk. Not sure about you but I spy a heart within the plants . . . ?

Now for the rock scramble to the Fayerweather lighthouse. I locked up my bike and started the moderate hike.

Finally made it! I am a lighthouse!

I am also happy to report that there had been graffiti that has been nicely painted over.

I then rode back to Jennings Beach. Route was approximately 10-12 miles with fun stops along the way.
