Rated 5 stars for friendliest, best-supported ride in NH!
Since 1987, the Trans NH Bike Ride has been the event for people looking for a ride that’s unique, benefits a worthy cause — and most of all, is fun (and yes, a little challenging, too!).
What makes the Trans NH Bike Ride different from your standard one-day century?
Scenic routes – Much of the ride passes through some of the most beautiful areas in NH, including Franconia Notch.
Excellent ride support – Ride volunteers serve up snacks, sandwiches, water, energy drinks and other essentials for your ride at rest stops located every 20 miles or so. Our roving mechanical support is on hand throughout each day to help with flat tires and other bike issues that arise. Best of all, massage therapists are on hand on Day 1 and Day 2 to help ease your tired muscles!
Hotel accommodations – Once you’re done for the day, your suitcase is waiting for you, along with a hot shower and a full dinner plus entertainment.
One and two day ride options — We know not everyone can get away for four days or wants to ride for three days, which is why we offer options. Ride one day (Sunday) or two days (Saturday and Sunday) — and still have a blast while benefiting the MDA. (And, if you’re an avid rider who wants to do 3 days, and your spouse 1 day, that works, too!)
Camaraderie – Once you do this ride, you make friends for life. We’re a friendly and welcoming bunch of riders of all ages and riding abilities. So please, come join us!
Supports the MDA of NH — This ride was started by a small group of firefighters, and for years was known as the “firefighters’ challenge.” The goal was to raise as much money as possible for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Over the years, the ride has grown and changed, but one thing hasn’t: our goal is still to raise as much money as we can — while still having fun.
Whether you ride one day, two days, or all three, you’ll come away knowing you’ve done something amazing – for yourself and for people in our local communities who suffer from the debilitating effects of muscular dystrophy and related muscle diseases.
