We departed Atlanta on Thursday AM for Glenn's conference on
Martha's Vineyard but the real adventure began as we headed
for Boston to begin this short leg of the ride!
|Departing Martha's Vineyard by Ferry on Saturday afternoon|
|Windy Day on the Ferry|
|Since the bike shop where Glenn had reserved his rental bike|
didn't open until Noon on Sunday, we decided to stay on Cape Cod
Saturday night in the town of Hyannis.
|A Tripadvisor.com #1 Inn in Hyannis! Great location and nice hosts!|
It had everything we needed....free WiFi, free parking and free breakfast!
|This is the "New" Rented Support Vehicle. Similar to ours but we |
were missing our I Care I Cure I Cycle sign on the rear window!
We departed from Hyannis on Sunday morning and headed to Boston to
pick up Glenn's rental bike. We had no idea that we were headed to a
bike shop that was directly across the street from Boston University on
graduation day! Mobs of students and families were everywhere, roads
were closed and we were right in the middle of it all!
|Busy corner on Sunday morning!|
|Glenn's "New" rental bike turned out to be an even better bike than|
his own.....hopefully, he will not feel like he has to upgrade after
using this carbon bike for this one day ride!
|This was the price tag on the rental bike! I asked if we needed|
to take out insurance on it! Needless to say, it did not stay in the
car Sunday night. It had a comfy corner of our room at the Inn.
Glenn departed from Commonwealth Ave in Boston at noon
on Sunday heading to Newburyport, MA which was to be a short
45 mile ride for the day. I went straight up on the highway as he
meandered through the countryside and I explored this lovely, quaint
New England town while waiting for him to arrive.
|Our "HOME" in Newburyport, The Compass Rose Inn.|
Thanks to Gloria, the Inn Keeper, for a wonderful stay in this beautiful Inn.
At 3:20 PM, Glenn pedaled into the Inn in Newburyport but it was a short stop!
It was early, he wasn't tired and he was just itching to get to New Hampshire.
Off he went to log a few more miles!
|Glenn added a new state to the long list |
on this ride, New Hampshire!
He took this photo from the seat of his bike!
|The New Hampshire Coast as I drove with a college friend to|
find Glenn to bring him back to the Inn in Newburyport!
Beautiful scenery and very different from the Jersey Shore I know and love!
|The rocky coast just north of N. Hampton, NH|
We finally found Glenn near the entrance to Odiorne State Park north of
Rye, NH. He rode 68 miles and was relieved that the predicted
rain never found him! I was lucky that I found him!
|Oops...what happened to the front wheel of that pricey bike?|
No worries, it is safely packed in the car. No flat tires and no falls today!
