No Sleep ’till P-town 2014

Ptown 2014
We set new records for the “No Sleep ‘Til P’town” ride yesterday, both in terms of participants (17, if you count people who came in and out at various times) and arrival time (we rode 135 miles in under 8 hours, not including breaks). This was the 14th year of the ride, which I started as a way to persuade some of my triathlete friends to visit me in Boston. It has evolved into an annual tradition with a revolving cast of characters. (We had a good mix of newbies and veterans this year.) Many friendships have been made along the way, and there’s been at least one marriage. For most of us, it’s the longest ride of the year. For some of us, it’s the longest ride of our lives.
Every year some stranger asks me, somewhere along the course, why we’re riding. This time, my answer was, “Just for the heck of it.”
Of course, the real answer is much more complex. Cycling past many different landscapes in one day: inner-city Boston, the farmlands of Plympton, the historic homes of Route 6A, the desolate scrub-topped hills of Truro. Reuniting with old buddies and making new ones. Regularly pushing past 30 miles per hour as we soar along the Service Road roller coaster, unhindered by car traffic. Raising a well-deserved pint of beer on the state’s only bar built on top of a sand dune, overlooking the Atlantic. Burning enough calories to eat an endless stream of junk food at the vendors in Provincetown’s Lopes Square. Riding to the edge of the earth and living to tell stories about it.
