In 1775-1776 Benedict Arnold and Richard Montgomery invaded Canada. Americans needed more troops and supplies to siege Quebec. Colonel Jacob Bayley led the northern frontier militia from Newbury, Vermont. He urged General Washington to build a shorter road. Washington, without waiting for Congress, approved the plan on April 29, 1776.   Ride this historic road!  Highlights include:  scenic towns, sparkling ponds, rolling hills, quiet roads, and "almost all are dirt. Dirt. Dirt. Dirt.".

Space is limited, registration will be open Sept 8- October 9.

Roam through the middle of D2R2 country riding amazing, scenic & traffic-free routes. Prepare for plenty of climbing in some cases well above the golden ratio of 100ft/mi. 

All rides lead from the center of Conway, MA. Plenty of parking at the ballfield above the town hall. 

Our local guide is Pamela Blalock—long time member who moved out to western Massachusetts in 2015. She used to lead local CRW rides, including the Apple Pi ride and ran veloNH, a 3–4 day trip, based in Jefferson, NH, sometimes throwing in a few dirt roads for fun.

Epic four-day adventure that starts with a climb to the summit of Massachusetts’ highest peak (Mt. Greylock) before coming right back down to cross the length of the state. We’ll keep cycling to the westernmost point — Provincetown, MA to dip in the ocean — enjoying the best ice cream, bakeries, brews, and burritos across the state before catching the last ferry back to Boston, perchance?
