Hey guys -- times are hard for everyone right now, but even harder if you're having trouble putting food on the table. Please support the Food Bank if you can! Every $1 can provide 4 meals, 100% goes to The Food Bank's mission, all donations are tax deductible.
To complete my 50-mile pledge, I parked in Falmouth and rode my bike to Woods Hole to catch the ferry to Martha's Vineyard. A guy on the ferry told me that the Monarch butterflies are amassing in Aquinnah (Gay Head) before heading off to Mexico. I love heading off to Mexico, so I headed off to Aquinnah to see the masses of Monarchs. After a chilly ride I saw one butterfly, but the cliffs were gorgeous!
I camped at the little campground in Tisbury on hard-packed sand. My bike was so heavy with camping gear that I threw my front wheel out of true. My bike was vibing left, right, left, right, etc. I looked like I was listening to reggae music as I rode. On the ferry back, another guy saw my touring setup and gave me a long list of better touring bikes that I can't afford, ha ha. I'll just fix my wheel and take less stuff next time.
Thanks again for anything you can contribute!
