NER 100k & Party, Oct 4th
All NER riders and friends are invited to the NER end-of-season Party being held on Oct 4th. The day will begin with a 100k ride from Medford to Groton, MA and back. This is a first of the monthly winter “Sunday Series” rides to be held the first Sunday of each month October – March around the Boston area. More info on this and other Sunday Series rides here.
The party is open to everyone irrespective if they rode the 100k earlier in the day. The party is from 1-3pm at the RBA’s house in Medford. Party held rain or shine, though hopefully shine so it can be in the backyard. Lunch and drinks will be served. Parking Info & Directions.
While not required, a RSVP for the party is greatly appreciated.
Central VT “New” Fall Classic
Our last 200k and our first sub-200k since the spring will be held on Sept 26th. This is a brand new route out of Montpelier VT: The Central VT Fall Classic. Riders will have the option of riding 200km or 110km but they must declare their intended distance at the start. The 200k is a figure 8 with Montpelier in the middle. The 110km is only the southern half of this route.
Both routes take riders on a majority of dirt roads for the distance! These are nice VT dirt roads: Road bikes should be fine but as always slightly wider tires will likely be more comfortable if you have the option.
Details regarding the ride have been posted to the event page.
This ride has traditionally been a nice end-of-season wrap-up 200k.
