Clyde ride on the Cape?

Hey guys, was just talking with a training partner here on the cape, anwyays he was telling me that I should see if the Clydes here on bike forum would be interested in doing a ride down here on Cape Cod. So as per his wishes I am writting this (he is a bit shy about asking I guess). Anyways so yeah would anyone want to have a ride here? Cape Cod is probably really far away from most clydes here on BF I would imagine. Anyways throwing it out there!

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Not this year, but Cape Cod is a ways from Indiana!

Gingergin, Nightcap and Fastflyingasian are there in Taxachussets though, as well as a lot of closeby Clydes

Yeah, the Cape is a bit far away from most of the BFers. I kind of hinted to him that a ride this time of year on the Cape would be kind of erm...well dumb...the weather here changes every hour!

Usually try to get to the Cape in early July, Cape Cod Bike Trail might be a good choice.

Trouble is I'd have to eat a load of pizza and beer to get back up to speed. I'm currently running 197.2.
Good news is there's plenty of good pizza and beer on the Cape, so shouldn't be a problem.
