I can remember people telling stories about driving 50 miles for a cup of coffee or 250 miles to New York City to get a newspaper. Those were the days when it was really a big deal to own a car. Doing something crazy like that was an initiation into manhood back in the 50’s. To translate that into the 21st century, I rode my bike 17 miles to get a liverwurst sandwich. With tomato, cheese and mustard no less. Actually I doubt there are many places in the world where one can buy a liverwurst sandwich, so I brought my own.
I was thinking about this post while I was riding and the many times I had done this route. Adding the links to reference past rides would have looked something like this.

Needless to say, the town of Rochester located on the SouthCoast of Massachusetts is a very popular area to ride because of the bike friendly rural roads. By the way, SouthCoast is a local name adopted by the area to pinpoint a more specific area of Southeastern Massachusetts. There is a reason why its spelled SouthCoast, and I remember it making sense, but no one thinks about why any longer. We just accept the moniker.
