Sturbridge to P-town
The original first day route, Sturbridge to Bourne is the longest and most difficult leg of the event. The first 50 miles are quite hilly; riders face long grueling climbs as well as very fast descents. The last 60 miles are a combination of rolling hills and flats that if not for the first 50 miles, could be considered fairly easy.
This ride begins at 5:30 am and depending on pace and rest times, can last from 4 hours to 14 hours. Most riders arrive at MMA between 12:30 pm and 4:30 pm.
The route map below is the 2009 route; this year's route will be posted later in the year.
