Dorchester    "Going Places"
Mountain Bike-A-Thon
About the Mountain Bike-A-Thon
 
Ride through the scenic forests of Dorchester, New Hampshire.  Choose either a 10, 15 or 20 mile loop.  Most of the routes are on dual track backwoods trails that will take you through Green Woodlands, a 22,000 acre woodlands property.

There are no motorized wheeled vehicles allowed on trails of Green Woodlands so you will be able to interact with nature in tranquility.  You will be able to visit four remote ponds, the largest being Cummins at 160 acres as well as Trout, Pout and Mudgets Ponds.
 
Pass by beaver bogs that are frequented by moose as well as numerous streams and cascades of the Mascoma River headwaters.

When
Saturday, July 16, 2016, Start Time 8:00 AM, please arrive by 7:30 for check in.  Rain day which hopefully we will not need is Sunday, July 17, 2016.
Where
Dorchester Historic Town Hall
Town House Road and North Dorchester Road, off Rt 118
Dorchester NH  03266

The main starting location is the Dorchester Town Hall but there is an alternate starting location at Cummins Pond at the intersection of Dorchester and Norris Road.  Vehicle parking will be at the Road Closed Sign on Dorchester Road and then bike about a mile to the starting location at the pond.  Entrance to this location is by way of the Lyme area.  For those familiar with Green Woodlands Cross Country Skiing, the starting location is in front of the Barn House.
Experience the Ride
The YouTube video below was done by a neighbor from dAcres in Dorchester while doing the 20 mile bike ride in 2015.  It was a bit cloudy that day but we are sure it is going to be sunny this year!
