Greetings NERds. It’s time to bike! We have many classic events starting in April and the return of the Portland Maine Fleche.

April 14thProvidence 200k. Ride is back on! Now using an updated version of the Hell’s Hollow route which was last used in 2018. Ride starts from the Providence Bike Collective.

Apr 28th – NER’s Boston Area 200k. Historically this has most number of riders as the start of the Boston Brevet Series. This year we’re using the descriptive “Five Hills in NH” route. The brevet starts from Medford Center and has post-ride chili and snacks for riders as they return. Sunday event.

May 4th – The Green Mountain 200k (aka Bakery Brevet) starting from Middlesex, VT.  About 20% dirt.  Come enjoy some gravel roads in central VT.

May 11th – The 50 Barns 300k and Royal Athols 200k. Both were new routes last year. The 50 Barns route is one of the best tours of Central MA. It passes south of the Quabbin with a stop in Amherst and loops north of the Reservoir on the return. The Royal Athols brevet is a counter clockwise loop with a nice lunch in Peterham.

PORTLAND FLECHE AND TRACE! – Weekend of May 16-19th. By popular demand, the Fleche and Trace are going back to Portland! These are super fun team events where groups of riders design their own routes to Portland. The Fleche is exactly 24 hours and 360km and the Trace is 200km+.
