Average Speed: 18.8km/h
We started the cycle from Christopher Columbus Park in Boston. We were only 5 minutes in when we saw a cyclist crash into a runner on the cycle lane by the Charles River. Messy crash but they seemed ok. The first few miles were all along a cycle path which took us out of the city. Once the cycle lane ended we watched the second half of Spain v Germany before setting off for Framingham. We had planned to pick up a GPS there along the way but couldn't find the shop. That will be our first task tomorrow. This sort of cycle is impossible to freestyle and our map's today weren't detailed enough. Most of our day was spent cycling through suberban areas. Because of all the traffic it was tough to build up any speed so we didn't get as far as we would have liked. There isn't much to see on the outskirts of any major city and Boston is no exception. Tonight we stayed in a motel in the middle of nowhere. No beer so there should be an early start in the morning. The main positive is that the cycle has started without any major problems or delays.
