Joe Sandulli, ECTA (Essex County Trail Association) Board Director and Trail Committee Chair passed away in March of this year.  He rode with the Myopia Hunt and led many guided trail rides—day and night—through Ipswich, Essex, Hamilton, Wenham and Topsfield over the years. Joe joined us on the trails in West Newbury as a volunteer and participated in our events.  He also assisted in funding and constructing many of the trail improvements we all enjoy. 

For questions or additional information contact Deb Hamilton at 978-270-9129.

Sorry! Our event is full and can no longer accept entries.

      Hi Anita,

      The pace will be slow. You do not need to be a WNRDC member to participate! A donation towards maintaining trails would be appreciated but not necessary.

    Any recent cancelations? My friend and I would love to do this and we commute together. I’m also a member. 🤞🍀🤷‍♀️

      Hi Dawn,

      We can fit you and your friend in for the Solstice Ride. We had such a big response, we’re going to break it up into two groups. Let me know asap if you still want to go and I’ll open up registration so you can fill in the online entry form.

      I do not have you in the entries list. Are you sure you actually filled in the entry form for the Solstice Ride?
