The Touring Club of New England
Essex Country Ramble
A straightforward Time-Speed-Distance rally of approximately 85 miles
Sunday afternoon, June 10th, starting in Danvers, MA
This just in! Spring maintenance has left our gravel roads in beautiful condition. No more worries about ground clearance -- so come on out and see the roads one experienced local rallyist swore "didn't exist".
Think all the good rally roads are outside the beltway? Think again. We've gone out and found some beautiful roads in Essex county and strung together a scenic tour entirely within the I-495 loop. Travel for miles on end without encountering a traffic light . Cruise down a few quality unpaved roads. Experience a rally without any transit zones - every mile counts. We'll have easy course following for the novices, but challenging timing for the experts. Best of all, the start location is only 20 miles from downtown Boston.
Start location: McDonalds on Route 114 in Danvers, 1/3 mile towards Peabody from I-95N exit 47A.
Registration: 11:00AM - 12:00 noon. $15 for TCNE members, $20 for non-members.
First car off: 12:01 PM.
First car finish: approximately 4:15 PM, at Jake's Grill on Route 1, approximately 0.5 mile from the start. Awards to follow ASAP.
General Instructions are now available.
