The Ramble begins in Manchester, NH with the "official" kickoff in Boston alongside both the USS Constitution "Old Ironsides" and the Massachusetts General Hospital laboratory where the gene for HD was discovered in 1993. It heads through the Berkshire Hills through Hartford, CN and into New York City. The riders will visit "Ground

Zero" and the National office of HDSA. They continue on through Philadelphia, Baltimore, along the historic C&O Canal route through Maryland, west to Pittsburgh and into "The Western Reserve" ...
