The 43 mile ride is intended for the more avid cyclist who enjoys a more serious challenge.  There are some nice hills in this one, 2 cat 5’s and over 2000 feet of climbing.  There are also 2 refreshment stops, one at 14+ miles (2nd Street Baking in Turners Falls) and another one shortly after you make the turn onto River Road in Deerfield, around mile 27.

Stone Soup Cafe will be catering lunch so please stay and get something to eat after you ride.  The Chef, Kirsten Levitt, will undoubtedly cook up something special.  Also, we’ll have plenty of liquid refreshments around to keep you properly hydrated.

Some Reminders:

Our goals are for each rider to raise $100 and each team to raise $350.  Of course, these are optional targets and we appreciate whatever funds you can raise.  Have your friends support you by contributing one dollar per mile for the 15 miler and $0.50/mile for the 43 miler.

Both rides are plenty scenic and mostly stay off main arteries, but there will be some exceptions so keep your eyes on the road as there will be potholes and other potential road obstacles to to be aware of.  Stay alert.  Also please ride single file.

Everyone riding must wear a helmet.  This is for your own protection. 

One of our sponsors, Sean at Speed and Sprockets will be set up to look after minor bike adjustments.
