Overview

Cycle the most beautiful bicycle route in the Berkshires! This inspiring 40-mile ride starts in the bucolic hamlet of Egremont MA, just south of Great Barrington. We cycle on quiet but hilly roads through Alford, West Stockbridge, Lenox, and Stockbridge, with 2800 feet of total elevation gain, including a challenging 2-mile climb up Lenox Mountain, followed by a thrilling descent. The scenery is spectacular and well worth the sweat. This ride is suitable for experienced riders who enjoy a good climb, and can sustain a riding pace of 12-14mph.
