If you did not get a ticket to Acadia and want to be placed on the waitlist email Sam at samanthalevin16@gmail.com. Whether or not you get a ticket will depend on how many people who bought a ticket cannot go anymore. Also, if you bought a ticket but can no longer go email her as well.

Cape Cod Bike Trip

The 8th annual Cape Cod Bike trip is coming up! Here is the important information and what to do if you want to go on the trip.

Itinerary (dates TBD see below) here’s the trip description:

  • Friday: Campus/home to Boston Ferry Terminal at Rowe’s Wharf; Hingham ferry terminal to Shawme-Crowell State Park.  63 mi.  We have a busy day, so start well rested.  Everyone should roll down to Rowe’s Wharf in Boston to catch the MBTA Commuter Ferry. Once in Hingham, we will start our ride.  The trek for day one is roughly 63 miles, with some rolling hills near the end.  At least 2 good spots for bridge jumping, and also one historic wooden bridge (Duxbury Beach’s Powderpoint Bridge – no jumping) and the Sagamore Bridge (end of the day – definitely no jumping!!!).  We will finish our day at Shawme Crowell State Forest in Sandwich where we are camping for the night.
  • Saturday: Shawme-Crowell State Park to Jordan’s house, Wellfleet 40-50ish mi.  Saturday we will bike the lower Cape, covering about 40-50 miles.  About half to 2/3 of the day is spent cruising on the Cape Cod Rail Trail.  When in doubt, ride the rail trail to Wellfleet.  We have the options of kicking back at Lecount Hollow Beach or Marconi Beach that afternoon/evening or rolling into the Drive-In Movies on our bikes.
  • Sunday: Jordan’s house, Wellfleet to Provincetown Ferry; optional but highly scenic and refreshing after lunch ride to Race Point Beach from Provincetown, +10 mi RT; Boston Ferry Terminal to Campus/Home. 23 mi. (33 mi with Race Point side trip)   We will be riding some mildly hilly terrain on the most gorgeous roads of the entire trip into P-town.  Once in P-town, we can check out the beaches, check out Race Point dunes, the cool bike paths out there, the funky shops in P-town, the Pilgrim Monument, and anything else.  The boat home is a nice 90-minute high speed ferry that’s likely to be crammed.  We have to arrive at the ferry 30 minutes prior to departure or they can give your seat away to a standby person!!!!!  That means no later than 7:00pm at the ferry!

Costs: About $70 for the ferries and camping. You’ll pay for your own food along the way.

If you’re interested, you need to do 2 things:
(1) Fill out this Doodle poll right now: http://doodle.com/f3hfxnwmxtex8xrc We need to select a date so that everyone can plan a day off from co-op or work and so that Mike can book the campground.
(2) Send Mike Sanders an email at michaelbsanders@gmail.com so that he can add you to the list.
