Enjoy a long day in the saddle on one of the longest days of the year!  This flat route heads north to Maine on inland roads and returns via the coast.  Lots of chances to stop and take in views and refuel.  A great opportunity for those looking to set a new personal distance record.

It's X-Mass in July! Cycle across Massachusetts (X-Mass), from near the NY state border to the beach at Castle Island, in one day! The ride starts from the summit of Mt Greylock (opportunity to stay overnight at Bascomb Lodge for an early start) then a beautiful journey through the Berkshires and along the Quabbin Reservoir, followed by a climb to the summit of Mt Wachusett and a finish at the Boston Harbor to watch the sunset. This is an unsupported ride and riders will have to arrange for their own travel to the start. The ride leader will host a planning meeting in May to review ride logistics and help riders assess their readiness and prepare for this epic ride.

Let's take a ride out to Bolton Bean for some coffee and tasty treats. Century option continues out to Sterling and scenic views of the Wachusett reservoir. Shortest route doesn't make it all the way to Bolton Bean but offers a nice 40 mile loop through Sudbury  

Notes: 

Rest stops are about 35 miles apart.  We will stop to regroup every about every 25 miles with time to quickly refuel if  needed.

Two routes to climb high and enjoy the views.  The metric route ascends the MIT Haystack Observatory and the old Harvard Observatory.  The double metric extends to Peterborough with a steep climb to the summit of Pack Monadnock followed by a climb to the summit of Mt Wachusett.

Update (July 21, 2022): Due to the forecasted heat wave, the double metric route has been replaced with a 79mi route starting from the Wachusett MBTA station.  Please remember to bring plenty of water and electrolytes for hydration, sunscreen, and some good morale to counter the weather.
