Team Lyle New England is now history. It will be part of New England lore for years to come. History buffs of the future will study its social implications and it's effects on land use patterns in eastern and southeastern Massachusetts (if you see land, use it). I want to thank Mark for putting this together and Bill for helping. I had a great time, saw things that I've never seen before in places I've never been to before and someday I'm likely to remember what some of them were. As RM, or RB, whatever, he did a nice job and should consider this a new career opportunity. And Bill, riding east from Indiana in this heat and stormy weather just to help with this event, should reconsider his priorities in life (I may have the state wrong, might have been Ohio). I'm in complete awe of the top rider. Not much causes my jaw to drop any more but his ride did (and I'm sorry that I don't know his name. Looking forward to the next one. Thanks for the adventure, Mark.
