Registration

Registration is required for this activity.

Overview

Enjoy a 28-mile ride at a moderate pace (12-13 mph average) across all four of the Pioneer Valley Hamptons. Soon after we get started, you'll experience some enjoyable long and steady climbs with complimentary descents. However, most of this ride is on rolling terrain on quiet roads surrounded by farms and thick woods. We will stop for a break at Outlook Farm at about mile twenty. Our group will be kept together. If we don't know you, you will be contacted once you register and asked to answer a few screening questions. You will need a road bike, hybrid bike, or pedal-assist e-bike in good working order, a helmet, snack, water, and tube or tubeless tire kit to fix a flat. Once confirmed, you will be sent an information sheet with the starting point along with all necessary additional guidance.
