Awesome Dirt Hill Climb 200k – Sept 6th.
Just a reminder to check out the Sept 6th 200k out of Montpelier, VT. (Full Details.) This is like D2R2 only hard and more fun. About 75% dirt roads (roads, not trails) as many gaps as fit in a 200k. Perhaps the hardest and most scenic 200k anywhere in the US.

We have some nice late season rides coming up: Dan Shinnick is offering up a brand new 200k which transverses the North Shore of Massachusetts — an area rarely seen by Brevets and considerably flatter then our other 200ks. In VT they are planning a wicked hilly 1/2 dirt 200k which is a true challenge for those that are up for it. And thanks to Dan Greene will have yet another 300/200k on the calendar using our classic route to Voluntown, CT. As always we’ll end the season with VT Fall Classic 114/200k out of Burlington, VT.
