More detail on parking from NRT board member:
'Gerrish Station is your gathering area for a large group ride. There is plenty of parking there. Routes 3 and 4 split in Boscawen at the north end of town, stay to the right on Rt-3. Gerrish is just north of the county jail and nursing home complex, on the right hand side of RT-3. Look for the old freight depot building.'

We gathered at Gerrish Station Depot, riding our fast vehicles north west, leaving Boscawen quickly, cruising through Franklin -- which featured FIVE train stops in its day, including the farm of Danel Webster, NH's prominent citizen of his day, stopping at East Andover.
On our return, we lunched on Webster Lake, later snacking in beautiful downtown Boscawen.
Encounted some light rain on our return, one rider demonstrated his rain gear.
Organizers are posting June ride soon, from East Andover to Danbury. Tune up your bikes, take some training rides, as this segment will be about 26 miles, round trip.
