The Kearsarge Klassic Dirt Road Randonee is a challenging bike ride in central New Hampshire that circumnavigates Mt. Kearsarge primarily on dirt roads.
The dirt roads and secondary paved roads are traffic-free (for the most part), hilly, scenic, twisty, and just plain fun.
Although the route is mostly town-maintained dirt roads, conditions vary from smooth dirt to loose and rocky gravel. For this reason, it is strongly recommended that riders use a gravel bike or cyclocross bike with tires of at least 32mm width. Riders are also encouraged to carry spare tubes.
The roads traverse many of the properties conserved by the Ausbon Sargent Land Preservation Trust.

The CRW route is based on the Kearsarge Klassic 55 Mile Route

Meet at Warner Park and Ride at I-89 exit 9 in New Hampshire. Please get there 15 minutes before start time.
Ride limited to ~7 plus the leader. Please stay home if sick or not vaccinated.
This is a GRAVEL ride. Wide 32 –35 mm tires will be most suitable.
We will average ~12mph with 2 stops for food.
This is a no-drop ride, but it is a HARD ride. If you can't average 12mph on dirt with lots of climbing (17mph paved road equivalent) then this isn't for you. I want to get home in time for the Pats game.
Due to the challenge of this ride, the leader may request additional information from registrants prior to being accepted for the ride. We appreciate your understanding.
