Day 6 on the road saw good times and unlucky times. Thankfully, we completed the 106 mile day on a strong note (thank you, Market Street Brewing Co!!) and are ready for tomorrow! Check out the blog for more details! wheels4water.org/blog
We started Day 1 with a sunny morning in downtown Boston and launched the ride from Timberland, then hit some hills (5,000+ Feet), rain and 75+ miles. All in all a great day! A special thank you to ITS, Inc. our Massachusetts state chapter sponsor for Day 1.
The Wheels4Water team rolled out of Sturbridge, MA and peddled 100.4 miles to East Canaan, CT. The day was filled with temporally lost keys, filtering water, meeting someone who rode their bike around the world over 4 1/2 years - 10,000+ miles, and telling the Wheels4Water story to everyone we could! The day was beautiful, with great climbs, beautiful scenery and dinner with our state & jersey sponsor CVM.
Thanks gain for the support, here are the Day 2 highlights.
On Day 3 we traveled through three states on our way to New York. The day was beautiful and included a several mile ride along the Hudson River. But WHY are we doing this? Our Day 3 sponsor, amigo, and SAG captain gives some insight.
Here is our account of Day 4 on the ride, mostly taken from Brian's perspective on the road. (Unfortunately we missed the part of the day in which Brian and Ryan encountered a small dog who chased them up the steepest incline we've seen yet.) Onward through NY!
