Parking

The Walnut Street School Parking Lot, on the corner of Walnut Street & Elm Road is where most people should park and is the most convenient to the race. Families parking in this lot will need to wait until the entire bike portion of the event has concluded prior to leaving. If you are on a tight schedule and not sticking around post-race, then park in the parking lot on Lowell Avenue, Hull Street or a side street that is not near the bike section of the course.
