Note: as a local I can tell you that these are lousy directions. Check www.tylerhamilton.com for info on joining the lead in ride. You can be Tyler's domestique for about 1/2 mile! I plan on being there, with my 3 1/2 year old daughter in the trailer.
Yup, I noticed this and am planning on being there! (nm)jtferraro

Care to give any better directions from 95/128N? Also, how will I know it's you tonight?? I'll only make it to the park - not for the ride. Thanks!

From 128 the simplist way is to tak 114 east all the way into Marblehead, then follow their directions. 114 has many twists and turns, but the signage is pretty good. In retrospect, there MAY be less traffic on the Lowell St directions they provided. Actually, both will probably be lousy at rush hour!

I'll be on a black Lemond BA, followed closely by a neon yellow and green Kool Stop trailer w/orange safety flag. Look for my wife on her handcycle also. She'll be lower than the crowd, but it's a distinctive ride!

MS Society was quoted in yesterday's Salem News as expecting 200-300 riders. I wouldn't be altogether surprised if there are more (I hope so!), but we shouldn't be too hard to find!
Darn-didn't see this message til' now, but have pics to show! nmjtferraro
