Preparing to ride the Kanc!

Sept. 9 & 10, 2017- twoday1The Three Notch Century will challenge cyclists to conquer 100 miles in TWO 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.

Please Note: This option will NOT have ‘on-the-road’ support – Cyclists will check in at two stations (at the end of the recreation trail in Franconia Notch {13 miles in} AND at the Crawford Notch Depot {35 miles in}).

Registration will begin at The Kanc Lodge at 7:00am on Saturday,  with all riders on the road by 8am. Depending on the speed of riders, we will finish between 1-3:00pm back at the Kanc Lodge on Sunday.


Participants will meet at The Kanc Lodge on Saturday and will cover 100 miles over 2 days. Beginning at The Kanc, day one will cover about 60 miles through Franconia and Crawford Notch and will end in North Conway at the North Conway Grand Hotel. Day two will cover a grueling 38 miles up and over the Kancamagus Pass, just below tree line, then descend and finish back at The Kanc.

Participants will be meeting up with the three day crew at the hotel in North Conway and the full group will tackle the Kanc. together on Sunday.

Sections of the route will be on dedicated bike paths and other sections will be on major roads. Rider level should coincide with mileage and terrain to be covered.


Registration will open in early 2017. If you do not wish to register online, please contact Northeast Passage by phone at 603-862-0070. There is no registration deadline, but it is limited so we suggest registering early! Please register by Sept. 1, to ensure we have a hotel room for you.


The registration fee for the two day ride is $200. 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 Saturday, 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.
