Salt marsh

Ease into summer with this early June ride that starts slow and easy along the Newburyport rail trail and then gets going along shaded tree-line roads bordered with blooming flowers and bushes throughout Newbury, Georgetown, Boxford, and Topsfield.  Our ride will come to an end as we ride by farmlands in Ipswich and the salt marshes in Rowley.  

There are no bathroom facilities at the start of the ride.  There are porta potties at Cashman Park on Merrimac St at the end of Broad--a few blocks from the start.  And there are more at the entrance to Willowdale State Forest on Linebrook Rd.--at mile 32.5. 

Choose your lunch preference:  either settling in (with or without a beer) at Michael's Harborside or grabbing a sandwich at Port City Sandwich for a relaxing picnic along the Merrimack.
