2012 Schedule Announced

The 2012 Schedule has been finalized. Mark your calendars!

We’re still working out the details so check back soon. Highlights include a slight revision to the Boston 200k and 600k routes plus an entirely new Boston 300k. Our Fleche will end in Portland ME this year. Mike is back with his excellent Vermont including another running of the highly praised Vermont 600k which debuted last year. Registration will be open starting in February.
