One more photo of the @indianmotorcycle Scout on #CapeCod. It’s hard to take a bad photo of this bike…

For dinner I met friend @Tricia at Nice Slice on Thayer Street in #Providence #RI. The whole street has a college vibe thanks to nearby Brown U, so you’d expect the pizza to be cheap and cheerful. The margherita was surprisingly good, with a nice crispy thin crust (that made me think that it was whole wheat but I don’t think it was) and a nice, sweet sauce. Overall, a good balance. We also sampled another white pizza, Cranberry Picnic, this time with almonds and cranberries (!) and spinach IIRC. Again, it was interesting, with the almond adding some crunch and the cranberries little bits of sweet. But I think that I am a traditionalist when it come to #pizza, willing to try the new stuff but favoring the red sauces. The @roadrunner_magazine Northeast Pizza Tour continues tomorrow, with both New Haven and Brooklyn on the docket…

Spiritus in Provincetown MA was good but not great. Crust was nice and thin and crispy, but the sauce and cheese were not special. I also tried a Greek #pizza with onions, olives, spinach, and feta. Again, good (especially considering that Provincetown is a tourist trap) but not great. It tasted like ingredients served on bread, if that makes any sense.

It ended up raining a lot in the afternoon. Thankfully, my gear kept me warm and dry. Checked out Thayer Street in #Providence and the rains finally stopped. The #pizza hunt continues, rain or shine, on the #indianmotorcycle Scout. Later, at Nice Slice, a couple of guys saw the helmet and asked if I was riding the Indian. I said yes and they were happy to see that the bike was being ridden even in the rain. They noticed my #Vanson jacket and said, “You can tell that you are a serious biker.

Road out to the tip of #CapeCod on the #indianmotorcycle Scout #Motorcycle in search of good #pizza and, truth told, an excuse to visit Provincetown. The “scene” featured a fair amount of leather so I fit right in with my #Vanson. The pizza was ok not great but the dunes were a sight to behold. All part of the @roadrunner_magazine Northeast Pizza Tour.
