Due to the increasingly likely track of Hurricane Lee making landfall somewhere on the coast of Gulf of Maine, we have decided to postpone the ride for 1 week to Sep 23, 2023. There is a new registration link on BikeReg if anyone wants to take the opportunity to register for the new date. (Please see ride page for the link.) All registrant of the Sep 16 ride date will be “manually transferred” to the start list of Sep 23, 2023. If you have any question or concern please reach out to RBA via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We appreciate everyone’s understanding of the situation and we thank our volunteers who can accommodate the pivot of the date. Let’s hope that the storm would not cause significant damages and stay safe for our friends in Coastal Maine this coming weekend.

To those who may look to register for the ACP 300km Ride on 9/16/2023 (Updated on Aug 13, 2023):
There is an on-going issue with the Mt. Hope Bridge plus there is a resource issue as well compounding the issue that we have decided to change the location of the ACP 300km along with the route.
We are going to use the Mid-Coast Maine Route for the Sep 16 ACP 300km ride. We apologize for any inconvenience to anyone who have registered for the ride or plan to do the Newport ride. If you want to exert your frustration toward the change of venue, please write to RI-DOT and complain to them so there may be another voice to straighten out whether bicyclist belong or not belong on Mt. Hope Bridge.

NOTE: We’re aware that a lot of roads are currently closed in VT and are figuring out if anything needs to change with this ride! We will keep riders posted when we have the final route, but we expect to run the event on the scheduled day, with route tweaks as necessary.
July 22nd: O Canada Centennial 400k (ACP Certified) Celebrating 100 years since the first ACP 400k, this event also falls at a great time for a last long pre-PBP event.
