Living in Jackson and previously in Gorham I've done this ride many times solo over the years. I have a great respect for Tin Mountain Conservation Center and know many of the staff there. That said, I've always wondered about their liability. Designating a bike route carries the implication that it is safe for bikes. The Mt Washington Century includes two dangerous segments for groups even when the group may be spread out. US 2 in Jefferson and five miles of NH 16 on the northern approach to Jackson, with moderate to high traffic and minimal shoulder.

Even riding solo I would take a gravel road alternate bypassing US 2 in Jefferson. Probably not an option for the Tin Mt road bike crowd.

Your post is the first I've heard about possible cancellation. Not sure if this has anything to do with safety. Possibly Covid?
