Join us for what will be the most epic cycling adventure you have yet to experience! TourXNewEnland is a 6 day test of physical fitness, bicycle prowess, and adventure through some of the most beautiful and iconic parts of New England, finishing just south of the Canadian border in Vermont.
The ride will start at the center of the Litchfield Hills in CT. From there on the first day you will follow along both dirt and paved roads through Northwest, CT finishing in Great Barrington, MA. The next day you will awake to venture out to the Brattleboro, VT area where along the way you will be riding portions of the famous (and famously challenging) D2R2. On the third day you head straight north to beautiful and “quintessentially Vermont” Woodstock and the final day of the point-to-point portion of the ride you will depart Woodstock to finish in East Burke, VT.
