The Coast to the Cure Bike Ride – Road Courses will begin and end at the beautiful Stage Fort Park on the ocean’s edge in Gloucester. Riders will travel through coastal communities and rural towns of Boston’s North Shore. The ride takes you along beautiful rivers, lakes and bridges and past New England churches, town halls, and farms.
