A Weekend in Cape Cod

Well since the wife was going to be out of town for the long weekend (Victoria Day up here), I decided a bike trip was in order. Looking back now, I should have expected bad weather and terrible traffic, but what's a bike trip without a little adventure?

I rode down to Cape Cod on Saturday. The last five hours of the ride was through brutal rain. I passed no less than four dead deer along the way, but thankfully the Bambi's stayed clear. Sunday I did some exploring. It drizzled off and on until 4:00 then the flood gates of heaven opened up. Monday's ride home was ok, but the traffic from Buffalo to home was unreal.

All in all Cape Cod was a beautiful place to explore, and I'd really like to see it again when the weather is nicer. Here are a few pictures I took on Sunday:

What was the temp during the ride? Has it warmed up enough there yet?

It was in the 50's during the day, but when I arrived Saturday night it was in the low 40's. Monday the weather was much nicer.

Parts of the road get flooded with the tides.
