Expo, Club & Parking

Parking

Stage Fort Park has ample parking though people who arrive later in the day may need to park along Rt 127 (Western Ave) as the Park lot fills. Do not park in the residential side streets Tolman Avenue, Beachmont Avenue, Crowell Avenue, Stage Fort Avenue, Anchor Lane and Windsor Lane. These are residential streets. GP Gloucester must be a good neighbor.

In last year’s event it was obvious that some were parking, staging teams and even camping on Tolman Avenue. This does nothing but alienate our racing community from residents of our host City. Camping is also expressly forbidden in Stage Fort Park and on the streets of Gloucester. Please go to our Visiting Gloucester page for resources regarding places to stay.

Expo

Spectators will have the opportunity to test ride new bikes, see the newest gear and check out all the goods and products from the event sponsors and vendors from across the country.
