YOU SPOKE AND WE LISTENED!
Thanks to the hundreds of cyclists and volunteers who took the time to answer our Survey Questions after last year’s ride, we worked extra hard throughout the year to make some improvements.
We think you will  appreciate the following:
  • Chip technology to alleviate the need to remove bib numbers at the end of the ride! There will also be some ability for family and friends to track riders as they check in and out of certain major rest stops to get a better sense of when to expect them back at The Ballpark!
  • A slight re-route in the Kennebunkport area, necessary for two reasons. 1) Poorly behaved cyclists riding 3 & 4 abreast have compromised our town permit, requiring changes to the route. Thankfully we do not expect this to significantly impact our ocean views and are counting on ALL of you to follow the Rules of the Roadthis year!   2) Feedback from many of you that Route 9 should be eliminated where possible. Updated MapMyRide and directions are available on our website.
  • Additional Police presence at difficult intersections.
  • Additional Marshals to make sure ALL CYCLISTS abide by the Rules of the Road. If you are willing to help out, please email Cindy at neparkinsonsride@gmail.com.
  • More clearly defined Entrance and Exit signs at The Ballpark.
  • Shorter beer lines!
  • Vendor booths  with all kinds of information!
    Please  plan to stop by and visit the following sponsors & supporters:
    MJFF/Team Fox, Pfizer, Rock Steady Boxing, The Art Cart, Metronic, BeSpokeKit Team Store, Trionic Trekker…and more!
