The "Locked Bikes"/Bass Rocks Ride

Official Ride Report by Donna, originally sent to Sam.

A dozen Cyclopaths headed out from Salem this morning, July 17th. Six enjoyed breakfast in Manchester, (Jack, Carl, Joan, Mike K., Gail and Paul G.), and six continued up to Gloucester, (Brenda, Lynda, Arlene, Ethan, Sheldon and Donna). We ate at Sugar Magnolias in downtown Gloucester, and all locked their bikes outside the restaurant. Brenda reminisced, "Remember that time Sam locked the bikes and forgot the key?!"

We all enjoyed breakfast and then headed outside to start biking again. Lynda announced, "Houston we have a problem!" Her bike was safely locked with Ethan's and Sheldon's to a trash can, but the key to the lock was back in her truck, 25 miles away! After much discussion, (and the coincidence that a taxi happened to drive by), Lynda, Sheldon and Ethan took a taxi back to Salem, got the key, and drove back to Gloucester, while Brenda, Donna and Arlene enjoyed a loop by Bass Rocks and along the coast thru Magnolia back to Salem. Another memorable Cyclopath ride!
