Three-Day Ride Details
Our ride starts at the Canadian-NH border of Beecher’s Falls near Colebrook, NH, on Friday, June 26, 2020. Because it’s a point-to-point ride, we provide transportation for riders, their luggage and bicycles, from Portsmouth, NH (the site of our finish line) to Colebrook, NH the day before the ride, on Thursday, June 25, 2020. Riders who provide their own transport can plan to meet us at the border on Friday morning for the group start of the ride (details below).
