The New England Classic is back for 2010 and looks to be better than ever.
Held for almost 20 years to benefit the American Diabetes Association, the New England Classic or NEC is a 7-day, 550-mile bicycle tour that makes a loop through four New England States: Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Maine and Vermont, July 10-16. Riders looking for just a weekend tour can ride the first two days of the NEC and then return to the start on motor coaches while bicycles are lovingly loaded into trucks for the trip back.
Featuring unparalleled support for riders, the NEC route takes you along the seacoast, into national forests, and through quaint New England towns. In addition to well-stocked rest stops along the route each day, riders get all-you-can-eat breakfast and dinners. And on the NEC there is no camping. Overnight accommodations are in comfortable college dorms and ski resorts.
Don't miss this chance to be part of a sweet ride to beat diabetes. While pedaling for a great cause you'll enjoy the camaraderie of fellow cyclists who revel in being known as a "caravan of crazies." Go to www.newenglandclassic.org for information on the NEC including photo galleries and blogs from previous years.
Don't wait any longer! Sign up for the NEC today.
