D2R2 - The Deerfield Dirt Road Randonnee 2019

RIDE FOR THE LAND
Saturday, August 17, 2019

Presented by the Franklin Land Trust

We celebrate the landscape, the history, and the rural culture of western Massachusetts, and work to ensure, through a program of land protection, that the historic pattern of field, woodland and village will endure for the benefit of generations to come.

Rain or Shine Event - Sorry No Refunds

ROUTE CHOICES (see descriptions)
180K, 160K (new route), 115K, 100K , 100K+ Mystery Ride, 50 mile Paved Ride (new), 40 mile Green River Tour and 12 mile Family Ride. Register early for the best rates.

NEW!!!

DPR2 - Deerfield Paved Route Randonnee
What? A paved route? Yup...why not?

We realize there are many “roadies” out there that don’t own bikes that are suitable for most of our routes. Or maybe gravel just isn’t their thing. A riding buddy of yours, a spouse perhaps. They have heard about the adventure, the fun, and the stunning landscapes that the D2R2 offers.

So, This year we are introducing the Deerfield Paved Road Randonee (DPR2) with these folks in mind. Although shorter than some of the gravel routes, this will nonetheless be a 50+ miler that will challenge riders with close to 5000’ of climbing. Like other D2R2 routes this one will explore the scenic, lesser traveled byways of this region that in this case, will be suitable for skinny tires. Riders will experience steep climbs, swift descents, flat cruising past working farms along the Deerfield River, historic bridges, distant views...a bit of everything. Start time TBA

Mystery Ride - This years’ Mystery will use bits and pieces of other routes spliced together in a new and different way. A few stretches that will resemble trails more than roads are to be expected. There will be 6800 feet of climbing, more or less. More punishment will be possible for those who seek it by adding an optional new 10 mile after-lunch loop that will have two serious climbs...one long and steady and the other short but as steep as it gets. You’ll need to be flexible in your thinking and ready for anything as route details won’t be available until just before the ride. Start time TBA.

160K - A serious new 160k route is being planned for 2019 that will wind its way westward into terrain unexplored by previous D2R2 routes. The route will traverse 3 state forests using newly refurbished one lane gravel roads as well as seldom traveled rough stretches with puddles and rocks. To add to the fun, there will be some smooth cruising and some wicked steep climbs...just to give you something to talk about over beer and a great meal at the end. Stats will be similar to the old route with roughly 10,000 feet of climbing so this is not something for the faint of heart. Start time TBA.

PRE-RIDE PARTY - FRIDAY EVENING - New vendors. New food. New beer. Music and Bonfire. Watch for details.

2019-09-21Roe Jan Ramble10, 18, 25, 35 and 68:30 AMCopake Community Park, 305 Mountain View Road, Copake,
The 7th Annual Roe Jan Ramble Bike Tour is a non-competitive ride perfect for both the casual as well as committed cyclist. Whether you enjoy a simple ride with your family, or you are an experienced dedicated cyclist, the Ramble offers something for everyone. Every year we update our routes to make life interesting ane enjoyable. All routes are on paved, lightly traveled public roads or rail trail through lovely farmland, rolling hills and picturesque hamlets. Choose from easy, moderate and challenging routes through the lovely Roe Jan area towns of Copake, Hillsdale and Ancram, NY along the Taconic and Berkshire foothills bordering Massachusetts.

This year we have 6 great routes to choose from:

10 mile Route: Our family friendly casual ride. Beautiful scenery around Copake & Ancram. Mostly flat, some modest hills. Super enjoyable for the occasional rider.

18 mile Route: A nice, nice ride. Mostly flat with a couple short steeper hills, and fantastic scenery. For those who want more than our basic 10 mile ride, but not as challenging as our 25 miler.

25 mile Route: A moderately challenging ride, that includes rolling & a few steep hills, with amazing vistas. Great for intermediate riders & those who want a worthwhile outing.

35 mile Route: For the stronger rider, a more challenging ride through rolling hills with some steady steep climbs, but great scenery and an impressive finish. It includes segments of the Harlem Valley Rail Trail. (total ascent 1,840 ft.)

50 mile Route: For experienced riders, this is our premier ride, through all three towns. Some challenging hills, but rewarded with impressive vistas. Includes segments of the Harlem Valley Rail Trail. (total ascent 2,834 ft.)

Metric Century Route (100km/62.5 miles): NEW THIS YEAR! Want a challenge? Our 50 mile route & then some! Experienced riders seeking distance will get rolling steep hills, and impressive vistas. Go for it. (total ascent 3,436 ft.)

The 25 route has one rest stop with food, water and restrooms. The 35 mile route has two rest stops, and the 50 mile & 100 km routes have three.

Although our ride is free and open to everyone, we hope you'll raise money to benefit the Harlem Valley Rail Trail. Your contributions will help complete the trail from Millerton, NY to Copake and connect Copake to Hillsdale, NY.

2019-09-21Roe Jan Ramble10, 18, 25, 35 and 68:30 AMCopake Community Park, 305 Mountain View Road, Copake,
The 7th Annual Roe Jan Ramble Bike Tour is a non-competitive ride perfect for both the casual as well as committed cyclist. Whether you enjoy a simple ride with your family, or you are an experienced dedicated cyclist, the Ramble offers something for everyone. Every year we update our routes to make life interesting ane enjoyable. All routes are on paved, lightly traveled public roads or rail trail through lovely farmland, rolling hills and picturesque hamlets. Choose from easy, moderate and challenging routes through the lovely Roe Jan area towns of Copake, Hillsdale and Ancram, NY along the Taconic and Berkshire foothills bordering Massachusetts.

This year we have 6 great routes to choose from:

10 mile Route: Our family friendly casual ride. Beautiful scenery around Copake & Ancram. Mostly flat, some modest hills. Super enjoyable for the occasional rider.

18 mile Route: A nice, nice ride. Mostly flat with a couple short steeper hills, and fantastic scenery. For those who want more than our basic 10 mile ride, but not as challenging as our 25 miler.

25 mile Route: A moderately challenging ride, that includes rolling & a few steep hills, with amazing vistas. Great for intermediate riders & those who want a worthwhile outing.

35 mile Route: For the stronger rider, a more challenging ride through rolling hills with some steady steep climbs, but great scenery and an impressive finish. It includes segments of the Harlem Valley Rail Trail. (total ascent 1,840 ft.)

50 mile Route: For experienced riders, this is our premier ride, through all three towns. Some challenging hills, but rewarded with impressive vistas. Includes segments of the Harlem Valley Rail Trail. (total ascent 2,834 ft.)

Metric Century Route (100km/62.5 miles): NEW THIS YEAR! Want a challenge? Our 50 mile route & then some! Experienced riders seeking distance will get rolling steep hills, and impressive vistas. Go for it. (total ascent 3,436 ft.)

The 25 route has one rest stop with food, water and restrooms. The 35 mile route has two rest stops, and the 50 mile & 100 km routes have three.

Although our ride is free and open to everyone, we hope you'll raise money to benefit the Harlem Valley Rail Trail. Your contributions will help complete the trail from Millerton, NY to Copake and connect Copake to Hillsdale, NY.
