The 2011 Connecticut Valley Century Benefit Bike Ride is a fun but challenging ride offering four routes: 100, 75, 50 or 25 miles. The ride is on Saturday, September 10, 2011 and begins and ends at the Hatfield Lions Club Pavilion in Hatfield, MA.
The rides are relatively flat and follow rolling terrain on the West bank of the Connecticut River to Brattleboro, VT, crossing into New Hampshire and returning following the East bank of the Connecticut River through picturesque farmland and passing a waterfall before heading back to Hatfield. The ride is SAG supported and after the ride all riders can enjoy a baked potato with all the fixings.
This is an all-volunteer event. Net proceeds of this annual event will go to benefit the Amherst Rotary Good Works fund, which supports a broad range of humanitarian, intercultural, and educational programs and activities, including local high school scholarships and charitable organizations in Hampshire County.
Registration is $30 before 9/6/11 (plus get a free COVAC 2011 T-shirt!) or $40 day-of. Find out more about the ride and register here.
