New England Parkinson's Ride (ME)

Any of you riders participating in the New England Parkinson's Ride??

Our entire family participated last year and it was wonderful! Routes available for all ages and abilities, children are welcome. Very well coordinated and organized!

Awesome, what route are you doing? We are thinking of riding the 50 this year but haven't totally decided. We ride with kids so we have to come to a "group" decision!

Definitely in for the 50, possibly the 100. How old are the "kids"? Had my, at that time, 14 yr old do the 50 with me a couple years ago. It's pretty flat and he had no issue getting it done. Got to love finishing on the beach - I can taste the fried dough now

The oldest is 15, the 12 year old will not be able to make it this year and the 4 and 1 year old will be towed.We did the 30 last year and it was a fun little ride out in the country with some nice rollers. I tried to convince the crew to go for the 100 and they won't even entertain the idea!! The finish is wonderful and the welcome at the finish line is great too!!

Towing the kids is fun! We vacationed in Acadia and did a fair amount of that on the carriage trails - the kids loved it! Have to get through the Pan Mass ride in a couple weeks then I'll have this ride to look forward to. Here's to sunshine and tailwinds!
