Pam and Judy will be heading to RAGBRAI, soon.

We roll from Norwell on next Saturday.  Some of us with will ride with the Apostles on their special Fourth of July celebration.  It will be a fun next weekend.  There will be plenty of barbeques and new decks to see.

It was hot during the last weekend.  We rode with the MS150 crowd for a while on Saturday.  They took over our Coastal route.  Over 3,000 bikers rolled through Cohasset and Scituate.

We met a lot of the Yaegerdogs.  We rolled with them.  At Coffee corner we hid in the shade on the side of the building.  The sun was collecting on us.  Notice one person in the picture was wearing his solar sleeves.  He should have been wearing his South Shore Bikers jersey!

Mike Togo and Andy Brand led us a great adventure through the flat countryside south of Middleboro on the Sunday.  We actually went into Wareham via Thinonet road.  This takes you past the Ocean Spray cranberry processing center.  So, we were still in the cranberry country.  However, we saw lots of other crops.

I did have to stop at the intersection for a tractor on more than one occasion.  The area is not like southern Illinois.  There are few hills.  It is not like Indiana as the roads are paved.  It is own unique farming community.  Something that you might not notice in the busy hubbub of Boston or consider as part of Massachusetts.

Anyways, it was a great ride on Sunday.  Travis, Mike, Lori, Action Jack, Allison, and I were in the front group practicing pacelining for awhile. We stopped for coffee at some shop in Rochester.  It was an enjoyable day.

05-28-16 4 20160528_102457 05-28-16 3We had 20 riders on Saturday’s coastal route.   A number of the members stopped in Cohasset along the flags for our soldiers.  The VFW sets the flags for Memorial day.  They work hard on their tribute to our soldiers. It was hot on the Saturday. Several brothers from our sister club, the Apostles, rode with us on Saturday.  We also saw some of the MBRC guys, too.

Our man, Keith, was back to riding after having two kids.  We missed him! He was in the front group. He did not miss a beat.

Starters include a new rider from out of town, Larry, Eugene, Allison, Dan, Action Jack Murphy, Tom, California Mike, Judy, Julie, Linda, Irish Liz, Len, & Pam.

Everyone did the standard coastal route. Some rode the “box.” It has been repaved by the town of Scituate. It takes you past Minot Beach.  In the distant on the water is the lone tower of the Minot Lighthouse.

There was a well deserved rest spot at Coffee Corner for ice coffee on Saturday.  The temperature reached 95F.  During the early hours of Sunday morning a cold front would move across the region.  It would turn to fog in Nantasket Beach.  Yet, there was brillant sunshine and clear skies across Martha’s Vineyard

On S13307290_10154157149997988_4190655499799970723_nunday a bunch of us went for a tour of Martha’s Vineyard.  We rode 55 miles on the Shining Sea Bikepath and around the island.  Liz did her first week of 5 days of consecutive riding.  In the picture are Linda, Len, Lauren, Patti, Liz, and Bill.

Below is a picture of Greg during his 80 mile tour of the South Shore on Sunday.  It was a cold day on the south shore.  It was hot and muggy on the Vineyard.  Greg is happy to get out there riding!
