Bike Prep This Week

In preparation for our Cape Cod Rail Trail bike trip this weekend, Mr. Leonard has graciously agreed to provide some “tune ups” for your bikes.  If you haven’t been riding this year or if you are having difficulty with shifters or brakes or tires, please bring your bike along to the meeting on Wednesday.

We will also have a utility trailer on site Wednesday, so we can pre-load as many bikes as we can before the trek to the Cape on Friday.   Weekend traffic to the Cape can be difficult and the Sagamore Bridge is under construction so we want to get on the road quickly Friday afternoon and (hopefully!) avoid the worst

In addition to tents, mess kits and sleeping bags, you will also need to be prepared for a day on the trail.  This means

  • A daypack to carry your stuff
  • Water bottles or bladder
  • Snacks
  • Sunglasses
  • Helmet!!
  • Rain Gear
  • Bike Gloves if you use them
  • Portable bike pump, spare inner tube, bike tool if you have them

A reminder that HELMETS are mandatory for all riders on this trip.

Looks like it’s going to be another nice weekend, so saddle up and join us for a great weekend on the Cape!
