Saturday: Sturbridge to Bourne

 

These are the photos of our experience riding. Poignant photos of why so many people participate and contribute are here.

 

Sturbridge Host Hotel (night before)

We didn’t need quite all 750 Ibuprofen tablets in the rear bottle cage, but probably more than our doctors would be happy to hear about.

Ready to Ride, once again.

 

Welcome to Bellingham

Interesting to think back to our ride through Bellingham WA on the first day of our 2006 ride.

Mike’s family, Michelle, Evan and Dale, tracked us down to provide support.

Only one piper along the route this year, but still at a key spot.

 

Along the way…

Always give 5 when you can…

The wet area on the pavement ahead of Mike is evidence of someone spraying a hose at the riders – the cooling effect is invaluable on hot days like this.

A wide smile rolling into the day’s finish.

Carl and Sam Damphousse had ridden ahead, so Carl was relaxed and showered for David and Mike’s arrival.

In contrast, Mike and David were hot, tired and relieved.

 

:::::Desktop:PMC - Q:Saturday:ts renamed-a.jpg

The TS Enterprise has been renamed in honor of the Kennedy family. We were fortunate to have our same room on the ship this year.

The Kennedy was just back from the shipyard for maintenance – we believe the hardhat warning was a leftover from the yard.
