The 28th Annual Gasp: Bike, Boat 'N Bake signup sheet

It's The Last Gasp-with a new spin! The Gasp: Bike, Boat and Bake is now entering its 28th year with a brand new look!
It was time for an upgrade to our style, but The Gasp remains a premier fundraising event for the Cape Cod Community as well as one of the best days ever for our participants.
 
The ride features a cycling trip from Sandwich to Provincetown with an all new 55 mile route to maximize comfort and safety! At the finish in Provincetown, riders enjoy lunch and a shower before hopping on a trolley to get to the boat and return to Sandwich and head to a well deserved lobster bake!  

As you can imagine with so many moving parts to this fantastic day, we couldn't do it without the generous support of time and resources from volunteers like you! Thank you for your interest and willingness to volunteer!
