Two challenging rides to jump start the outdoor season. Both rides are accessible by Commuter Rail (Ayer Station-Fitchburgh line), with ample parking at the Nashua River Rail Trail start.
- 100mi: A hilly route through the scenic roads of Pepperell, MA and Amherst, NH. Formerly the Mirror Century, this route has three rest stops in Amherst, Peterborough, and Townsend.
- 100km: Another hilly route past Parker's Maple Barn in Brookline to the top of Merriam Hill in Mason, NH. This is preview of the Rebel Road route with two rest stops in Brookline and Townsend.
