The 4th Annual Rose Mountain Rumble is scheduled for Aug.25. The early registration fee of $65 expires after May 31. After May 31, the fee goes up to $85. If you are planning to ride, you may want to register soon: http://www.rosemountainrumble.com/register/
Not sure -- you can get more info at the same link. I've done this ride the last 2 years. Great low key ride, with superb support, and excellent post ride barbecue lunch. The proceeds go to support local land conservancy efforts. Also a terrific opportunity to meet and mingle with other New England gravel riders.

Hey bobknh Looks like I am in for the Rose Mt. Rumble for this year I have my vacation from work approved yesterday and now just have to figure out the details and register. At my end looks like I can come up the Weds before the ride Thursday at the latest. I would be up for the extra loop that they are offering for a shake down ride Thursday but probably not Friday if it's tuff to see if I really want to do that after a 100k ride. I probably would be up to some easy riding somewhere Monday after the ride but not Sunday. Post  here or PM me bobknh or anyone else if you are free to pre ride the extra loop on Thursday.


Many Thanks
Zman

Bobknh was right. This was a terrific event and the food after was the best I've ever had following any cycling event. I'll be back next year. 😊

The food was great afterwards even though they were kind of short on drinks. From my end with the traveling I was hoping for more gravel on the 40 miler. Guessing it was 50/50 gravel/macadam. I am guessing this is what is to be expected on the East Coast. One of the riders there Sat. said that Cabot Ride the Ridges has more so we shall see. After doing one gravel ride/race in Kansas(Pony Express 60 miler in Marysville KS) I have this much to say on the East Coast rides. I would say I probably saw around 75% of the people riding roadie bikes or at least skinny tires at this event. I did see a few riders changing flats but if they were riding like this in the Mid West area they all would be changing flats. So with that being said I would call this a bike ride not really a gravel ride though. I still had fun and would ride it if I was a local. I wouldn't travel to ride it again though.
