The Boston 200k is our classic ride from Hanscom Field to southern NH. This is challenging ride at 6873ft of elevation gain (~54ft/mile) but it’s worth it for the views, descents, and to just get out on a long ride early in the year. Watch out for sand on the roads as well as the normal potholes and broken pavement Eastern MA is famous for. Two of the controls will be fully supported with snacks and drinks and another control is a nice country store. The fourth control is an info control so riders should carry a pen to write down the answer to a question on the brevet card, thus proving you’ve ridden the route as designed.

The preliminary cue sheet linked above is in Justin’s awesome single page format. Ride leader Steve Wimberg has also mapped the ride in RideWithGPS. Keep in mind only the cue sheet distributed at the start is the official version of the route.
