While going through Sturbridge, MA we came upon some forest devastation from last year's tornado. Seeing the extent of the devastation first hand amazed us.
In east Providence my daughter, Julia, and granddaughter, Sage, surprised me and drove along until the end of today's ride providing cheers and support. This provided a real boost, as I lost 2 pounds to the Berkshires yesterday and I was dragging a little this afternoon. We then met up with Julia's girlfriend, Jenny and her kids and shared a meal together. It was so nice to see family again and we celebrated my grandaughter, Jura's, birthday.
Today's ride set me up for a shorter mileage day tomorrow to enjoy. Similarly to last day of the Tour de France, I'll ride leisurely and savor the last day of this 5 week adventure. We're still on schedule to arrive over the Bourne Bridge between 12:00 PM and 1:00 PM, then we will ride to Old Silver Beach in Falmouth with anyone who would like to ride with me for the last eleven miles together. Here's a link to the route from the Bridge to Old Silver.
You may call Claire, the SAG manager at 508 274 8247 after 10:00 for an update of the time expected over the Bourne Bridge.
