Dedicated, Long-time ride leader Steve Wimberg is planning a New Route for 2017! Tentative plans are for a triangle shaped route which has equally spaced 40 mile controls:
Leg 1 – Hanscom to DCR Wachusetts State Reservation (Visitors center)
Leg 2 – Wachusetts to DCR Purgatory Chasm Reservation
Leg 3 – DCR Purgatory back to Hanscom.

The two controls will be staffed with NER volunteers and light snacks. There are other services along the route if needed. Approx. 7000′ of climbing on paved roads making the route roughly as challenging as the previously used New Boston 200k. More details coming soon.
