Sept. 5, 6 & 7, 2014
The Three Notch Century will challenge cyclists to conquer 100 miles in three days. This event is appropriate for bicyclists and handcyclists. The ride will take participants on a challenging and scenic ride through the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Cyclists will begin at The Kanc Lodge in Lincoln, NH and ride through Franconia Notch, Crawford Notch and the Kancamagus Highway.
Participants will meet at The Kanc Lodge on Friday, Sept. 5 and will cover 100 miles over 3 days. Beginning at The Kanc, day one will cover 35 miles through Franconia Notch and will end at the AMC Highland Center. On day two, the team will descend through Crawford Notch and into North Conway, covering 25 miles and staying at the North Conway Grand Hotel in North Conway. Day three will cover a grueling 38 miles up and over the Kancamagus Pass, just below tree line, then descend and finish back at The Kanc Lodge.
Sections of the route will be on dedicated bike paths and other sections will be on major roads. Van support will be available; however rider level should coincide with mileage and terrain to be covered.
Registration will begin at 9:00am on Friday, 9/5. Depending on the speed of riders, we will finish between 1-3:00pm back at The Kanc on Sunday.
Registration opens on January 1. There is no registration deadline, but it is limited so we suggest you register early to secure a spot! If you prefer not to register online, please call the Northeast Passage office at 603-862-0070.
