Summer of 2020

Gears and Beers Around Cape Cod



2019's ride, "Route 66 to the Great Lakes to STOP Diabetes", was long and painful. 
And although I had fantastic experiences and met amazing people, I didn't have as much fun as I would
have liked.  And, I was away from home, Eileen, the kids, the grandkids, and Barley for 7 long weeks. 

So going forward, I plan on having more fun along with the challenges of facing the unknown. 
I will still do challenging rides, but will NOT be on the road for 42 straight days again!

And this year, COVID-19 changes everything.  Pedaling a long ride, far from home just doesn't seem safe.

So for 2020, I will do a four-day ride on the 𝙂𝙧𝙚𝙖𝙩 𝘼𝙡𝙡𝙚𝙜𝙝𝙚𝙣𝙮 𝙋𝙖𝙨𝙨𝙖𝙜𝙚 with a few close friends.
We will be CAREFUL!


But, with hope, good luck, and a vaccine, in 2021, El Torito (my trike) and I will again hit the road.
And we will take it a little easier!  And have more FUN! 

So, for my 2021 ride to raise funds and awareness for the American Diabetes Association,
I will pedal a solo,
unsupported, 300-ish mile Brewery Tour by Bike in the Cape Cod area.


This tour will include the following destinations:
