Saturday Sturbridge to Bourne
Quoted words are from the signs people wear, hold or attach to their bikes, and are a terrific inspiration to keep going, and to do more to fight cancer.
Early in the Day
“For My Uncle George and my Dear Friend Maggie”
“My Daughter is 8 and is Celebrating 7 Years in Remission! Thank You Riders!”
“Diane 6/5/47 – 11/14/11 Patrice 7/5/61 – 2/13/12
In loving memory – we ride for a cure”
“We ride for Livy!”
Lunch Waterstop – Dighton Rehoboth Regional High School
“Andrew Connor DeLuca 6/21/99 – 12/9/05”
Better news on this sign rolling out from lunch: “I’m now 6 because of you”
Along the Way
“Lily May is Thankful for You”
The glare in this photo also gives some flavor for how hot it was later in the ride.
“I am a Survivor Thanks to You”
Green sign in the middle: “My heart beats because of your feets”
The blue button on her saddle bag reads “I’m living proof” – one of more and more cancer survivors who participate in the PMC.

Portraits of the pedal partners – kids being treated at Dana-Farber and partnered with teams of riders for mutual support.
Rolling out, another encouraging sign: “Thanks to you I’m 7!”
