May Events

  • May 5th – Vermont 200k: Thank you to the 40 riders who started and Dave & Nancy for running the event. It was a perfect route with perfect weather. A classic Vermont brevet if there ever was one.
  • May 12th – Boston 300k & 200k: New Route! Explores Central and Southern Massachusetts with stops in Holland and Wales but still takes in the famous Tweedo’s in Ashburnham. This is a challenging but scenic and low traffic ride. The 200k is a shorter version with a later start.

April Events

We’ve got a ride almost every weekend in April!

  • April 21st: Boston 200k with a heavily revised route and new start location. This challenging 200k has been in development for about a year. It visits the towns of Princeton, Oakham, and Sutton Mass. The route is particularly rural and scenic, even by NER’s standards. Read Jake’s Pre-Ride report for more information.

Portland Fleche & Darts: Applications are due MAY 5th!  Now’s the time to gather a team and plan a route.
