2018 Calendar Annouced

Below are the dates and tentative rides for 2018. There’s a lot of planning still to come but the dates & distances won’t change. Long time riders will notice some Vermont events missing — We’re still figuring out dates so these will be aded as RUSA rides once more details have been finalized. We do expect a Vermont 100-400k plus a fall dirt ride.

Another notable change is that Hanscom Field has been asking cycling groups to find another start location which is a big undertaking for NER. If the start location is moved it will remain in the general area.

Fall Classic 114k & 200k – Sept 23rd

Please Join NER for our annual end-of-season Vermont ride to be held on September 23rd in Montpelier. This is a favorite route of many riders and one of the most challenging. 60-70% of the ride is on dirt roads with short section of overgrown bike trail on the 200k. Many riders complete the event on 25-28mm tires and road bikes so don’t be scared away. The 114k has fewer dirt sections which are all low traffic auto roads. After the event we’ll have a small party in which everyone is invited. Previous years have featured some picture perfect riding conditions.

Results: All 2017 event results have now been posted on the event result page and submitted to RUSA. RUSA members will be credited with the distances on the RUSA website within the week.

Overnight 200k Brevet August 12th

Join us at 9pm on August 12th at Ride Studio Cafe in Lexington, MA for our annual overnight 200k. Riders will transverse quite roads of Northeastern MA and southern NH as they ride by moonlight. (Or rather, bike headlight.) Besides being lots of fun, this event gives riders the chance to build up their overnight riding skills and is great for people with other commitments during the day.

Special thanks for Sarah for running the event and Ride Studio Cafe for staying open late and opening early in the AM.

More information on the overnight event page.

Minor route updates posted Friday morning. If you miss the online registration cut off, you can still join us by coming to Ride Studio Cafe at 8:30pm on Saturday night to fill out the registration form. (A DOE surcharge will apply.)
