Essex to Cape Ann Ramble

Sunday, July 28, 2019 12:00 AM

This weekend will be warm again, but Cape Ann should be cooler.

A 45 mile ramble from Essex to Manchester-by-the-Sea to Cape Ann and back. We shall stop at lighthouses, Rockport and Halibut State Park. Bring cash for ice cream. After the ride we shall meet for a late lunch at Woodman's of Essex.

You should be able to cycle 13-15 mph on the flats. You need bright clothes, flashy lights, spare inner tube, working bike and helmet. The roads can be busy with tourists sight seeing so being visible is very important.
