Hang on Tight, its a wild ride!

Quintessential New England

DSCN0925Well, I have to say I am happy to have traded training in the mountains of New Hampshire for the coastline of Cape Cod this week. What beautiful rides I have had along the seashores and through the small New England towns out here, even today riding the Shining Sea Bike Trail through Falmouth, MA.

Things for the ride are falling into place. As a reminder I will be riding from September 30 – October 4, from Orient Point to Montauk Point. We have a driver for the support vehicle for each day of the ride. The support vehicle will be traveling with us each day to carry extra water and energy snacks and an extra bike in case we have difficulty with one of ours. The driver will also be stopping at some of the churches along our path to leave some information about OCC in the event that no one is at the church when we arrive.

We are still in need of prayer partners for each day of the ride. Would you be willing to commit to lifting our riders up in prayer for one of our riding days? If so please leave us a comment below and we will get in touch with you.

I have had several people who have asked about riding along with me for a day or part of a day. If that is something that you would like to do please let me know, I’d love to have you along for any portion of the ride you would like to join me for.

We will be posting the route soon so that those who would like to be alongside a part of the route to encourage us along the way will be able to do so.

I am excited as we have scheduled our first stop at St. Patrick’s in Deer Park and I am looking forward to meeting Father Mahoney during our visit there. We’ll be making stops along the 200 miles at churches to tell them about OCC and leave some information to get them started for this year. If you know of a church that we should touch base with please leave their church contact info and the pastor’s name in our comments below.

It’s hard to believe it is only 25 days until we start the ride!

Hang on Tight,

  1. This sounds so wonderful. My family also loves to bike. How many people are actually biking with you? We live in upstate New York – near Binghamton – sure wish we could join you. Each summer we do a 180 mile 5.5 day bike/camping trip with Youth For Christ so this is right up our alley!

  2. Ann, right now I have 2 or three riding with me on different days. Hooping to have some others join in as we get closer. You’re welcome to come down and join us, sounds like you guys are pros at this.
