Just a reminder that starting in November we’ll have a 100k on the first Sunday of the month. The first ride of the 2017-2018 season is Sunday, Nov 5th starting from Nashua NH at 9am. More details on the Sunday Series page.
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.

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.
