The road at right, Veterans Way, comes from the Bourne Rotary and Bourne Bridge. Normally there’s a PMC volunteer here warning riders of a “Wicked Hahd Right Turn” as they zip downhill from the rotary and around the corner to get to the access point for the Cape Cod Canal Recreational Trail under the Bourne Bridge.

Normally PMC Riders would be arriving on 6-A from the right, turning right into the first Sunday waterstop. Instead, a stop at the market here for a bag of trail mix as lunch.

Normally a police officer or PMC volunteer would be waiving riders straight through on Setucket Rd, this year a right onto Old Bass River Rd to get to the Cape Cod Rail Trail and ultimately home.

By chance, David’s family found him on the route and captured a couple of live-action shots
