50-Mile Road Ride Description

  • The 50-mile road ride starts by taking you north from Mount Ascutney toward Hartland, with the biggest climb of the day in the first five miles.
  • Once you’ve passed through Hartland, you will continue straight on to the Quechee-Hartland Road, a nicely paved road with some fun climbs and beautiful fast flats.
  • Crossing Route 4, you will ride through the historic covered bridge in Quechee, around the Quechee Club, and onto River Road. This is a beautiful ride along the river, where the terrain changes to packed dirt road.
  • River Road will bring you into the town of Woodstock. You will go around the town green and head onto Route 106 south, past the Woodstock Inn.
  • Follow Route 106 until you reach Ascutney Basin Road (new this year!), then take a right and head north to Route 44, which will bring you back to the Start/Finish.
  • Don’t forget to look out for Zeus, the Zebra, who lives in Reading on Route 106!

You don't have to hit the road alone. Create a team and bring your friends! Registering with a team is easy and fun!

Rest Stops and Cutoff Times

All rest stops will offer water, electrolyte drinks, and energy food. In order to manage the operations of the ride, cyclists must enter the rest stops prior to the cutoff time. If you're having a slow day or struggling through any sections of the course, the SAG wagon will pick you up and jump you ahead to the next rest stop to ensure you can complete the ride in time and enjoy the P2P Festival. You will be asked to agree to these terms when registering.

Riders must finish by 4:00 PM.
