Route 100--200 Miles--One Day
Saturday, June 23rd, 2018

The 100/200 is a one day bicycle ride that stretches from the Canadian border to the Massachusetts state line. Route 100 is widely recognized as one of Vermont's most scenic highways and the ride is routed to minimize automobile traffic. With nicely spaced town greens for breaks, numerous scenic vistas, a number of long, steep climbs, and 50 mph descents, the 100/200 is a true New England classic, and a prime target for experienced cyclists.

While not a challenge to be tackled by the casual rider, the 100/200 should be within the capabilities of most well-trained cyclists. Bicycling Magazine included this ride in a 1989 article titled "Hell On Wheels: The 10 Toughest One-Day Rides in North America." Whether you've never tried a double-century before, or you're an experienced long-distance cyclist, this ride presents you with a challenge that you will always remember!

Ride Instructions

  • 2017 Rider Letter (2018 version to be updated in June)
  • 2017 Ride Cue Instructions (2018 version to be updated in June)
  • 2017 Cue Sheets (For those who like old, reliable paper)
  • 2018 Route on RideWithGPS.com
  • 2018 Likely Detour (updated 5/15/18) The section of VT-100 between Stowe and Waterbury is under major reconstruction. At this point, it looks like it won't have pavement by the day of our ride. This is a great excuse for us to detour onto VT-12 in Morrisville, rejoining VT-100 in Stockbridge. While this means no Granville Gulf, we get the wonderful Brookfield Gulf, which features new pavement all the way to Bethel, and a totally sweeet descent. This route will be finalized a week or two before the ride.

North Troy, VT too far away for you? Consider creating your own, local 100/200. A few teams did this in 2011 and 2012 with great success. Running your own version of the event on a different date? Let us know and we'll post information about your ride here. If you're closer to New Jersey, you might be interested in the CJBC's Longest Day ride, a New Jersey diagonale, also 6/23.
