Day 1784, Randolph – Boston: The Polish Connection

Posted by Thomas Andersen Posted on Oct - 23 - 2015

Distance: 22.3 km
Ride time: 1:17:51
Average: 17.2 km/h
Max speed: 44.3 km/h
Total: 41090 km

I didn’t have a lot of cycling on the menu today – but plenty of other things to do! After saying goodbye to Birgitte and her nice family in Randolph I rode the short 20 km into downtown Boston. In Chinatown I met Ed K1EP, a radio guy who is also into cycling and owns a Bianchi!

Ed took me to a great Chinese restaurant before we put my bike in his car and started drive towards Boxboro – a small town located an hour away from Boston where an annual hamradio convention would be taking place today.

I was very happy that I got a chance to visit the convention – especially because I number of the people I had been staying with lately would be showing up as well. First of all Dan K1TO, who I would now be catching up with for the 4th time in the 4th State since we first met in Florida back in July. Then there was Dennis and his wife Lieska from North Carolina and Dave W1CTN who I spent a night with just a few days ago in Connecticut.

I even got to tell a few stories from the trip…

When the convention was over Ed drove me back to downtown Boston where he picked me up in the morning. I was going to meet the Polish couple Jadwiga and Matt who had generously invited me to stay in their downtown apartment for the night. I met Jadwiga when we both lived in Granada almost 10 years ago. Now she is married and has a beautiful little daughter. How time flies!

Thanks for the great evening Jadwiga. It was great to catch up after all these years. Hope to see you soon again.

Wow, what an action packed day with so many nice people to meet! Some people ask me if I get lonely while cycling around the world. Not at all, very much the opposite!

  1. I wonder if I should brush up on my presentation skills!
