Detour de CT
Anyone else from the EBCC “Gravel Club” considering this one?
Sat Sep 3rd – The 6th Annual Detour de Connecticut Time: 8:00 am, Distance: 118 miles, Location: Manchester, CT. A self-supported ride on some of the most beautiful roads in Connecticut, about half the mileage is off paved roads, with maybe 5 miles tops on numbered highway routes. If you like D2R2, adventures, mild orienteering, short rough sections, not to mention loads of gorgeous back roads, this is a ride for you. This is a self-led ride; you are responsible for finding your way from the directions. Rain date the 4th. Meet at 182 Colonial Drive, Manchester, CT. www.cyclesnack.com/p/gravle.html, http://detourdect.blogspot.com/.
Its a bowtie route so you can cut it in half if you’re pressed for time or having a bad day.
