Bourne to Provincetown
Waterstop #2 - Nickerson State Park:
Carl and his mom Sandy. Sandy and Pete (Carl’s dad) again volunteered to feed and water the amassed riders.
David with Jack O’Riordan. Jack received life-saving treatment at Dana-Farber when he was little, and is an enduring inspiration to all riders.
Just before the Wellfleet waterstop:
The double balloon arch is a wonderful greeting after one of the tougher parts of the day’s ride – a climb into the wind along the beach.
At the Provincetown Inn Finish:
Here we are, looking reasonably spry if we may say so.
We ran into Jerry Coughlan (on the right) about 15 miles from the finish. Earlier this summer he completed a transcontinental ride in support of the PMC and the Reeve Foundation for Spinal Cord Injuries. We had ridden several hundred miles of the same roads out west last summer, and had a delightful chat from Truro to the finish comparing notes from our rides.
Note the mask on the grillmaster on the right – the volunteers are exemplary for the effort they put forth.
Arriving in Boston:
As we neared the ferry dock, this Boston fireboat Firefighter came out to salute the PMC riders and to honor the PMC’s mission.
The crowd at the ferry dock made us feel like rock stars as we arrived.
