Immaculate Baking CEO, a city boy at heart, has been training for a big bike race, the Pan Mass Challenge. He’s been training by cycling a kajillion miles every weekend, and along the way, he’s encountered some small annoyances (flat tires, stone dodging), some fantastic distractions (much needed calories at Virgilio’s bakery in Gloucester, MA), and some wildlife citings (more below). All of these make him more determined to cycle on — though some make him cycle faster than others, like the quiet deer popping out of the brush and the BLACK BEAR that crossed his path. Maybe Paul’s bike shorts smelled a little too much like . . . cookies. Any other black bear sightings out there?
