Distance: 61 miles Difficulty: Tricky
This ride is the first from the USA, from new subscriber Alex. It is a ride that is actually in one of my favourite States that I have been fortunate to visit on my own travels, Massachusetts. It is surrounded with history, some stunning views and architecture.
This is a great ride lovingly named Ronde de Rosey which is about 50% off road. It can be done on a cross bike or a mountain bike with the same effort and brings the rider around the outskirts of Boston and it's major suburbs. This bike ride starts and finishes right in the Heart of Washington Square, Boston.
Every spring, rumors reverberate through the Boston cycling scene, then it's time to gather teams for the Ronde de Rosey, that legendary annual ride through the hidden trails and back roads of the Boston area. The Ronde's mileage doesn't appear daunting in number, but this ride winds through some of the toughest trails in the region. It's a navigational and technical challenge that chews through tubes and causes bizarre mechanicals. It's not a ride even the most fit and skilled take lightly.
