This is a great fall classic that’s been around for over 15 years. If you were there last year you know what a great FLAT ride this is. If you missed it, now is your chance to take advantage of the early registration discount. We’ve partnered once again with our friends at Pedal Power, the best bike shop in CT! Together we promise you the ride of the season. Register now and secure your position on this great fall classic! See you there.
By popular demand, we are pleased to announce that we are adding a bike pick up at the newest Pedal Power location in Essex, CT! Like the Vernon drop, the date is 09-27 between the hours of 11:00am and 2:00pm. Your bike will be hauled up to the Vernon location, loaded into a trailer provided by FedEx. The following morning (long before you’re awake) they will be trucked up to the start in Vernon, VT the following morning. Of course, you will have to catch the bus to the start from the Vernon, CT location. Space is limited, so pre-registration is encouraged, but day of bike drop registration is open (09-27). There is no day of ride registration at either location. This is one of the best late season rides in New England. With breakfast served on the coach bus ride up to Vernon, VT, lunch on the course, post ride cook out, music, and best of all…post-ride carbs provided by our friends from the Boston Beer Company!
Ride begins and ends at Vernon Pedal Power. Your ride will wind through the gentle, rolling hills of North-Central CT, touch the MA border, then head back to Pedal Power for a great post-ride celebration.
Saturday, September 27 from1p-4p,all bikes will be wrapped and loaded onto a FedEx truck at Pedal Power. After loading, join us for a cook out and share some memories from past rides. On ride morning grab some breakfast, board the bus for a relaxing ride to the start in Vernon VT. (No bike loading on Sunday morning) Lunch will be provided on the course. Reach the finish at Pedal Power for a great post-ride celebration.
This event will benefit the March of Dimes. We encourage all riders to make an effort to collect at least $50 in donations for their ride. Please bring checks with you made out to March of Dimes.
