Blazing Saddles Century Ride [MA] Only $20 w/ 2 supported rest stops

Blazing Saddles is one of the earliest rides of the Fall century season. Travel through the rural towns of Boston's North Shore and southern New Hampshire ride along beautiful rivers, lakes, and bridges past New England churches, town halls, and farms. The terrain includes rolling hills, long sunny flats, and rural roads. The nearby ocean furnishes cool breezes. Trees provide plenty of shade, and the sun lends warmth on those open flat stretches.

Route Options
Blazing Saddles includes routes of 50, 62, and 100 miles. The 62-mile route is the same as the century until it splits off near the 50-mile stop. This way, you can wait until the last moment to decide how far you want to ride. Century route has 2 full rest stops (at 47 and 77 miles) and a water stop at 25 miles. Other routes have 1 full rest stop and the water stop. The 2012 route is changed from previous years.

Registration fee covers cue sheets, maps, arrowed route, rest stops with food and refreshments, after-ride refreshments, and water bottles for the first 300 registrants. Massage therapists will be available after the ride for a nominal fee. Music provide by Just Harry at the 50 mile stop with a mixture of familiar 50's and 60's oldies and folk music.
