 Cape Cod Caper

Ride Into The Sunset

- Ten Speed Spoke bike shop in Newport R.I. sponsors a really nice ride around the island annually on the Thursday closest to the Solstice.   They provide pre-ride fruit and drinks and post ride pizza, water, soda, and this year ale.  You got a ticket for two drinks after signing the waver with the ride rules.

Swansea Bike Works

-Starting in Swansea, the ride travels into Somerset along the
Taunton River. In Berkley head to Dighton Rock State Park.
The rock itself is an 11-foot high “glacial erratic” boulder,
Covered with petroglyphs of ancient and uncertain origin
(explanations range from Portuguese explorers, to Vikings,
to Native Americans). The rock once rested on the shore
of the Taunton River but is now enclosed in a museum
(open to late September). Thanks to Bob Paiva for
the 50 mile extension.
