D2R2

D2R2

August 18 2018
Deerfield, Massachusetts, USA

The Deerfield Dirt-Road Randonnee was conceived in the 1990's as just a favorite dirt-road loop in the hilltowns of Franklin County, Massachusetts. Since its birth as an organized event in 2005, many have hailed D2R2 as the hardest, most beautiful, most fun, most traffic-free, most unique, and overall best ride that they have ever done.

The courses will use the narrowest, oldest, twistiest, quietest, and most-scenic roads available. A range of courses will provide access to novices as well as challenge the world's strongest riders. D2R2 will never offer prizes for anything other than gags, nor will finish results ever be presented like it was a race. The course is not marked.  Riders will use cue sheets to navigate the route. Riders shall cover the course in a self-sufficient manner, without motorized crew vehicles. The organization will put as much effort into its food offerings as it does the ride itself.

D2R2 will remain a key fundraiser for the Franklin Land Trust's efforts to conserve land in the region.
