The annual Rose Mountain Rumble is scheduled for Sat. Aug 27. Full info here: http://www.rosemountainrumble.com . The ride is built around a 40 mile circuit - 70-80% unpaved with divergent alternatives which allow you to select any distance and degree of difficulty from 20 to over 70 miles. The basic route goes past my house. I'm new to GG riding. The promoters of the Rumble were very kind in providing me with cue sheets for the various routes. These have become my mainstays for discovering new off pavement riding opportunities (which there are many!) in my area of south central NH. Lyndeborough NH is centrally located and is easily reached from many NE population centers. Come on out and see the wonderful riding that awaits you -- literally in your back yard. This ride is a fund raiser for the Piscataquog Land Conservancy:

All proceeds from the RMR benefit the Piscataquog Land Conservancy (PLC), a non-profit land conservation organization working to conserve the natural resources and scenic beauty of the Piscataquog, Souhegan and Nashua River valleys of southern New Hampshire.   The inaugural RMR was held in August 2015 as part of PLC’s successful campaign to protect 189 acres surrounding the summit of Rose Mountain in Lyndeborough, NH. The land was protected, the ride was great and the name stuck!

This is a great event. Scenery, routes, post-ride eats. Great cause too.

Just rode the 10 mile optional add on loop. This is no simple ride around the block. Couple of real fast teeth chattering descents, and one long steep heart pounding climb. I did it relatively fresh today. Much tougher after 40 or 60 miles of gravel grinding. Hope to see y'all at RMR this Sat. Look for me -- I'm the old guy wearing a CMARS team jersey, and riding a black Haanjo Comp.
Cheers - Bob K.
