Astonishingly, what four bicycles were carrying filled an SUV and a trailer. The riders have ridden from North Andover to Beverly, to Somerville often staying in churches. They set up at farmers markets, attend church dinners and meet with municipal leaders. The culmination will be Aug 8 when all three rider teams converge on Boston. The riders will be fitter and hopefully breathing air less polluted by excess carbon.
