It started out a bit cool and very foggy at the head of the Cape Cod Canal in Bourne, MA. A mile or two into the ride, the sun burned off the fog and it became a beautiful day for a bike ride. We met up with an Army Corps Engineer, Sam who was a professional and knowledgeable ranger who gave a wonderful talk on the Herring Run.
Since the Coalition part was only 7 miles round trip, I decided to ride the rest of the canal. I wanted to do both sides by crossing the Sagamore Bridge, but the walkway was closed for construction. I ended up at Scusset Beach located at the far end of the canal before returning to the other end at Bourne.
