Why We Ride

Below are quotes from some of our Last Gasp riders on why they choose to participate in the ride on behalf of CCLC.

Thank you to our sponsors and donors!  Read more about the ride.



“Polhemus Savery DaSilva’s kind-hearted staff extended their funds to help support my college education with a scholarship upon graduating from Monomoy Regional High School in 2015. They continue to be a paradigm in local educational support by assisting the Cape Cod Literacy Council in providing Cape Cod people with access to an education. For this, I express my gratitude to PSD by riding alongside fellow supporters of accessible education in the Last Gasp and raising funds to provide an education for others. Thank you!”


“I will take any opportunity to enjoy a bike ride along beautiful Cape Cod roads, get exercise, breath fresh air and meet new people. And to do it for a cause as good as Cape Cod Literacy Council simply makes it irresistible. What’s not to like!”


“I  have done the Last Gasp for two years because I love biking and have gotten to do it for a good cause. I’m a writer for the Cape Cod Times, so I joined the Literacy Council team because I hope one day those who are part of the CCLC’s programs will become our readers.”


I believe in the mission of the Cape Cod Literacy Council and support the mission by riding for them in The Last Gasp. It is an honor to be part of this team! Thanks.”
