Cyclists of all skill levels are invited to choose from four exhilarating routes: the 27-miler, 44-miler, Metric Century, and Century Plus. Each route offers participants a breathtaking tour of New Hampshire's scenic landscapes, beginning and ending at the picturesque Holderness School campus.

Each route will be supported with SAG vehicles and rest stops well-stocked with food and hydration.

In addition, a full day of family fun will be offered at the Holderness campus. Activities for all ages include; a climbing wall, bouncy house, corn hole, food trucks, lawn games, raffles, face-painting and so much more. Non-riders can immerse themselves in the festive atmosphere, joining the community celebration and contributing to this meaningful cause.
