100/200:

100/200: A Vermont Double-Century

June 23 2018
North Troy, Vermont, USA
Starts at 5:30 am, at the Canadian border in North Troy, Vermont. It will finish many hours later at the Massachusetts state line, just south of Readsboro, Vermont. The name comes from the primary road, scenic Vermont 100, which runs down the middle of the state, and the distance, 212 miles. It is often called the "200 on 100".  This is a fun, picturesque, and tough ride which has been running off and on as a semi-organized event since 1984. The first 100 miles are fairly easy, as long as you don't ride so fast that you don't have the gas to finish the day. The climbs kick in during the second half of the ride. First, the Killington climb softens you up. Then, Terrible Mountain (that's really its name) gives you a solid punch in the legs at 140 miles. Finally, the long, 12-mile, steepest-at-the-top, Mt. Snow climb puts you on your knees and leaves the strongest riders thankful that the tough stuff is finally done. After that, it's a fun 25 miles to the end, with a wonderful, swooping descent into Readsboro. Of course, we're ignoring all the "little" climbs in-between these monsters. After all, Vermont ain't flat. Oh, and there's the detour around Jacksonville at 200 miles, which is the steepest climb of the day--but it's short--we promise!.
 
If you are an experienced rider, prepare well, and pace yourself, you should be able to complete this ride. Whether you make it to the end or not, you will most certainly respect the ride and you will be glad you did it. Most likely, you'll come back to ride it again! The 100/200 has no entry fee, and support is the rider's responsibility. Some folks ride self-supported, most pool their resources and con some friend into driving a support vehicle, and some just show up and trust they can find a car they can toss their gear into (a relatively safe bet). We don't guarantee anything, and we don't provide anything except the opportunity to ride an amazing event with what always turns out to be a great bunch of like-minded cyclists.
