Description: Ride counter-clockwise along the Cape Ann coastline, through Gloucester, out to the Eastern Point Lighthouse and Atlantic Ave., to Rockport and back through Annisquam Village. The short and medium routes return to the start location in Manchester from Essex. The longest option continues to Ipswich before looping back to Manchester. The coastal shoreline offers many scenic vistas by taking short excursions from the route.

This is a scenic tour with frequent turns, not designed for pace line riding. Please familiarize yourself with the route before arriving for the ride. If you are riding in a pack, make sure that the leader knows the route. The route is marked with a yellow circle and line.

Note: The same road mark is used for this ride from the Manchester and Ipswich start locations. Become familiar with the route so that you don’t get confused at the turns in Essex, which give you options to turn back to Manchester or continue to Ipswich. This ride was created by Gordon Harris.
