This all inclusive option will challenge cyclists to conquer 100 miles over two days. This supported ride includes overnight accommodations.
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.
Day 1: Starting in Lincoln, NH participants will ride through the resort town and take a right onto Route 3 Bypass. Take another right onto Route 3 (by Clark’s Trading Post). Riders can take a break at the Flume Visitor’s Center and pick up Recreation Trail at the north end of the parking lot. Along the trail, take a left into the Cannon Mountain Tramway parking lot and stop for lunch. After lunch, riders will hop back on the Recreation Trail. When the trail ends, turn right onto Route 3 North. Take a right in Twin Mountain, NH onto Rt. 302 east. Riders will cruise downhill and take a break in the town of Bartlett, NH and again at the junction of 302 and 16.

Turn right into Settler’s Green and the North Conway Grand Hotel.
Day 2: Travel on Route 302 east. Continue straight at the junction of 302/16 onto Route 16 south. Take a right onto East Side Drive and bear right after the covered bridge. Take a right onto West Side Road. Take a left onto Passaconway Road. This becomes Dugway Road in Albany. After the covered bridge, take a right onto the Kancamagus Highway, Rt. 112 west.

Registration will begin at 7:00am on Saturday. Depending on the speed of riders, we will finish between 1-3:00pm on Sunday.
Registration: We do not have a registration deadline, but space is limited, so register early to reserve your spot.
Cost: The registration fee for the two day ride is $250. In addition, there is a $100 fundraising minimum. Participants are encouraged to raise additional funds to support Northeast Passage’s adaptive sports programs. If the fundraising minimum is not met by registration on Friday, riders are responsible for covering the difference. The registration fee covers a rider’s costs for all meals, lodging and give-away item.
Please note: Due to the logistics of this event, we cannot refund registration fees or fundraising dollars.
Meals/Food: All meals are provided, including snacks and water at two checkpoints on Saturday.
If you have specific dietary needs, please let us know ahead of time. Also, if you have specific hydrating beverages or energy snacks that you prefer, please feel free to bring them along. If you feel you will need supplies along the way, we suggest packing a backpack that can go in one of the vans and can be reached easily.
Lodging: All lodging is provided – North Conway Grand Hotel on Saturday.
Northeast Passage provides double occupancy accommodations exclusively for riders. Family and friends, who aren’t riding and wish to stay at the same hotels as the group, must make their own separate reservations directly with the hotel and must cover that cost. If any rider wishes to not room with the group, they are responsible for their own expenses and must notify Northeast Passage (in advance) so that a space is not set aside.
If you are not riding and you plan to eat dinner with the group, Northeast Passage must be notified in advance (at least 1 week prior). You will also be responsible for covering the cost of your meal. Thank you for your understanding. Please contact us if you have questions.
Support: Northeast Passage will offer support through two checkpoints on Saturday, including food and water – as well as one support vehicle on the road. We will transport luggage to the overnight destination.
For safety’s sake, riders will have until 5pm to complete the route of the day. If this is not possible, riders will be provided with transportation to the day’s destination.
