Plymouth to P-town, Mid Week Cape Ride

The annual P2P Ride, (Plymouth to Provincetown), hits the road on Wednesday, June 18th this year. This SAG supported ride, with water stops, has been a hit with riders as mid-week Cape traffic is light and you can usually count on decent weather. (Note: A handful of Cyclopaths have participated in this ride in the past.) In order to cover costs for the ferry and support, early registration (due by June 11th) is $32, and day-of-event payment will be $40. (Chartered ferry departs for Plymouth at 3:15. ) If you will not be taking the ferry back to Plymouth, the cost will be $10. Full details (sent by Brian Carver) can be read in the "comments" section of this post.

From Brian Carver:

Plymouth to P-town Ride

When: Wednesday - June 18

Ride Type: Map and Cue Sheet , Arrowed

Times and Routes: 7am for 85 miles

Start: Town Parking Lot at the end of Rt. 44 and Water Street in Plymouth

Directions: From Route 3 south, take exit 6A toward Plymouth Center (Rt. 44E). The parking lot will be on your left after the gas station and traffic lights at Rt. 3A.

Leaders: Lee Leach and Mel Stoler

Description: Schedule a day off from work for this annual ride that leaves from the parking lot adjacent to the Radisson Hotel at 7am (or leave from Putterham Circle in South Brookline at 4am for an extra 40 miles). We usually finish in P-town early to mid-afternoon. The chartered ferry back to Plymouth loads at 3:15pm so you should have time to walk around town, get a bite to eat, etc. We'll arrive in Plymouth around 5:15pm.

This all day ride has been a great hit because mid-week traffic on the Cape in mid-June is tolerable and the weather for the ride and boat trip back to Plymouth more often than not are ideal. We tend to ride in groups based on pace. As usual, we will provide SAG vehicles for your bag, check points with water, pb&j sandwiches at the lunch stop and a cold one at the finish.

In order to cover costs for the ferry and support, early registration (due by June 11th) is $32 and day-of-event payment will be $40.

If you will not be taking the ferry
back to Plymouth, the cost will be $10. If the ride is cancelled because the ferry isn't running, your money will be refunded.

If you can't ride this year but are willing to drive a vehicle, PLEASE let us know. We'll reimburse for fuel and lunch and you will earn the heartfelt thanks ofall riders. Alternatively, if you are planning to ride and your spouse, friend, significant other, or adult child is available, PLEASE let us know.

I forgot that Brian rides this one!

I am definitely riding this again.

A great ride, pretty quiet mid-week ride (considering the usual weekend traffic we all know and love to hate!), has a few waterstops and a rolling SAG wagon monitoring for rider assistance. Beer and munchies in PTown!

Who's going?
