Details

Riding away from the lake, the Eastern States Tour heads through rolling farmland just north of the Finger Lakes. We eventually pick up the Erie Canal and follow it to the Mohawk River through Liverpool, Little Falls, and along the Hudson River into Latham, just north of Albany. You’ll get back into more serious climbing as we ride through part of the Appalachian Mountain range out of New York, across Vermont, and into New Hampshire. We climb to the top of Hogback Mountain and enjoy a sweeping view of three New England states. One night in Brattleboro and it’s time to cross the Connecticut River into our 13th and final official state, New Hampshire. While the major climbs are complete, you will still get to enjoy the roller coaster hills of New England through many small towns complete with the quintessential white church on the Norman Rockwell-esque town square. The last day we ride from Manchester down to the New Hampshire seacoast. The celebration would not be complete without the official police escort with flashing lights and sirens on the way to Wallis Sands Beach where we all perform the obligatory wheel dip in the Atlantic Ocean. The Cross Country Challenge is complete. But you can add a few more miles to your legs and add one more state to your list. Heading into Portsmouth, you’ll have the opportunity to cross the Piscataqua River and ride into Maine.
