FRIDAY JUNE 11TH
Our ride HQ office at the University of Massachusetts - Amherst will be open starting at noon. Come on by for a free cold drink or some friendly help.
If you're room is ready you can check-in; if it's not ready yet, you can leave your luggage with us if you wish.
We'll have several bike routes already marked, so stop by for a route sheet if you want to go for a spin.
We'll have a short relaxed escorted ride at 3:00 p.m. to Northampton for ice cream.
Back in time for dinner at the college dining commons -- picked by the Princeton Review for the second year in a row as the best in the country!
Pay for your own dinner and ice cream, but otherwise this day is FREE

SATURDAY JUNE 12TH
This is the main ride day. Start-line breakfast, great rest stops, routes from 25 - 100 miles, full S.A.G. support, post-ride farm meal, beer, pie, more pie...

POST-RIDE SATURDAY AND SUNDAY JUNE 13TH
After the big ride stick around for our Saturday Night Dorm Party (Margaritas, beer, more food, assorted stupidity...) Free hot tub time available nearby.
Those staying in the Deluxe Dorms WHO WANT TO can open up their suites for the Saturday Night Dorm Party. If you have an idea for a room, we'll foot the bill. (The Whiskey Bar, the Salty Snacks Room, The Tiki Bar, The Parisian Cafe...) The dorm party last year was so much fun I think we should just skip all this silly bike riding this year and head straight to the party.
Note that if you want nothing to do with the Dorm Party just let us know and we'll make sure that your room is far from all the fun.
If COVID is still a safety problem, are we canceling the dorm party? Of course not! (But we WILL move it outside for safety!)
On Sunday we'll have start-line breakfast plus lots of pocket food you can take with you for today's rides. Several marked shorter routes with full S.A.G. support, an escorted 40-mile ride, or skip riding and go paddling on the calm Connecticut River. (Boating costs extra). Free luggage storage if you need to check out early.
SO... which days do you want to ride?
