Come join us on this scenic ride from Connecticut's eastern Highlands into the lower Connecticut Valley and back! Three ride lengths of 100 miles, 100K or 35 miles.
Route starts in Chaplin and meanders to Lebanon and Colchester along lightly traveled country roads. From Colchester, you'll descend through the twisty turns of Devil's Hopyard State Park, and cross the Connecticut River at the Goodspeed Opera House in East Haddam... After a loop through Killingworth and other sleepy villages west of the Connecticut River, you'll cross back over the river on the Chester-Hadlyme Ferry in the shadow of Gillette Castle... Then it's on to a challenging climb out of the Connecticut River Valley and home through the agricultural towns of Salem, Bozrah, Franklin, and Scotland. The rides will have well stocked provisions. SAG riders and on-call support will be provided. Professional mechanics will be available at the start. There will also be great food awaiting you at the finish.
