    Any good Centuries or other organized rides coming up in New England.

    I'd like to do another century this fall, but I don;t really know of any. I'm in RI, but I'd be willing to go to near by states. Does anyone know of any good rides coming up in New England this fall?

    The National Multiple Sclerosis Society, “Hike and Bike the Berkshires” is this coming Saturday, Sept. 30th.

    The 100 mile route includes a ride over Mt Greylock and there are also 75, 50, and 25 mile routes. This is a fundraiser and there is a minimum $$ requirement.

    The Great River Ride is a very scenic ride, listed by Bicycling Magazine as "one of the best in the USA" (century route). There is a great deal of climbing, but a terrific way to end the season (if the weather is nice). The longest route is 110 miles, plus there are routes @ 80 and 62 miles offered. It can be very chilly in the Berkshires this time of year, so dress appropriately for some sweating during the climbs and some exhillarating descents. The best part is the piping hot, baked potatoes at the 80 mile rest stop.

    Damn you ! How do you find these ????

    I'm doing the Great River Ride on October 8th and I was wondering if there were any more organized centuries in the New England area after that.....I've been looking but haven't found anything until I stumbled across this thread....

    Well I guess I should have just asked you in the beginning.....

    Are there any other organized century rides in the NE region from mid-october on ?????

    Thanks cdale56,

    I knew about the CRANE site.
    The NBW ride in October sounds good but I won't be able to make it.

    On another note, I'd love to organize a Six Gaps ride in VT in the spring with some fellow BF'ers.....
    ..or maybe late this October or 1st week of November...
    There won't be snow up there yet will there ???
