Overnight 200k This Saturday
This Saturday at 9pm we have a brand new overnight 200k being run out of Lexington. This route takes a loop northeast into NH, toward the coast, and then back inland to return to Lexington in the morning. This is a great ride for those who want more practice night riding or just want a moderately hilly 200k under the night skies. More Details.
Online Registration closes Friday @ Noon. You don’t need to pre-register but there is a $10 surcharge if you wait until the ride start to sign up.
1000k Updated Route Info
We have posted links to the preliminary 1000k cue sheet and RWGPS maps to the NER 1000k route details page for those who want a more specific idea of the course:
Please note: The route posted is not finalized and we expect some changes after it’s pre-ridden in a few weeks. The route should be finalized within a week of the event unless something drastic occurs. When changes are made they will be posted here on the front page.
There are three long stretches between controls on this route. For all three there is food/water between the controls, either along the route or just off the route, which has been noted on the cue sheet.
Registration and Refunds: Riders have until July 15th to register or withdraw and request a refund. No registrations or refunds after July 15th. We still have spots available. The Comfort Inn used as the start/finish has agreed to extend their discounted room rate for riders who register by July 15th so there’s still time to get a better deal on room.
