Registration is required for this activity.


Join us for a delightful 31-mile loop from the Sunderland Public Library, exploring quiet paved roads in Sunderland, Leverett, Amherst and Hadley. The activity level will be relaxed, with a moderate pace of 11-13 mph average. Total elevation gain over the route is approximately 1100 feet (35 feet per mile). A few climbs will be steep but short. Highlights include plentiful farm views, views of Mount Toby, a swing through UMass Amherst campus passing by the UMass Sunwheel, and a lunch or snack stop at the North Hadley Sugar Shack. We will keep the group together and regroup as needed along the way. There will be some automobile traffic on the roads, but in general the traffic will be light. Expect to be cycling for 2.5-3 hours.
