100 Mile Road Ride
Ride Starts: 7:00am
This ride starts by taking you up Route 5 to Hartland 3 Corners and take a RIght to stay on Route 5.
You will bypass White River Junction by way of the VA cut off road as well as a nice climb up Christian Street. Rest Stop #1 is King Arthur Flour at mile 16!
Riding though Norwich, we have made a change since 2014 due to safety concerns. You will take a right in town at mile 16.5 to stay on Route 5. You'll stay on Route 5 for 5.3 mile until you take a left on Route 132. Rte 132 is a long pass, with some challenging hills and beautiful views. Rest stop #2 is at mile 30.2 in Strafford. Just after that stop, stay straight on Justin Morrill Memorial Highway to Route 110 S to Royalton.
Take a right on Route 14 and at mile 50.1, a small rest stop for water and Clif Bars, is available on the right.
Continue on Route 14 to Bethel and take a left onto Route 107.
**Here is where you'll have 2 options! Take the challenging climb up the North Road up over and into Barnard. OR stay on 107 until you can take a left on Route 12 and climb around to Barnard.
Both Routes bring you into Barnard for Rest stop #4. *"Due to space issues, we have moved this rest stop up the hill to Barnard Academy. You'll then climb through Barnard and into Woodstock. In Woodstock, follow the cue sheet to avoid traffic in town and over the covered bridge! Go around the green and head onto 106 south past the Woodstock Inn. Rest Stop #5 is just onto Route 106 behind the elementary school.
Follow 106 into Reading, taking a left on Route 44 into Brownsville. *Look out for Zeus the Zebra who lives at mile 77 on 106 in Reading!
Take a left on Brownsville Hartland Rd (Rest Stop #6 is on the right!) will bring you home over a 3 mile climb and fun descend through Hartland. Homeward bound to Harpoon with 7000+ feet of climbing under your belt!
