June Events

June 2ndVermont Northeast Kingdom 300k. Another one for the books. It was a great day of riding and all starters finished.

June 9thPortland Daytrip (400k) and Portland Express (200k). This is one of NER’s easier routes and the only coastal route in the archive. Riders of both distances will leave Woburn, MA at 4am heading north to Portland along the coast. Once in Portland, 200k riders are done and 400k riders turn around after a good lunch at the OhNo Cafe. The return leg is a bit more challenging as it stays inland to avoid the evening tourist traffic along the coast.

May Events

  • May 5th – Vermont 200k: Thank you to the 40 riders who started and Dave & Nancy for running the event. It was a perfect route with perfect weather. A classic Vermont brevet if there ever was one.
  • May 12th – Boston 300k & 200k: New Route! Explores Central and Southern Massachusetts with stops in Holland and Wales but still takes in the famous Tweedo’s in Ashburnham. This is a challenging but scenic and low traffic ride. The 200k is a shorter version with a later start.
