Gus' Ride, Race and Event Guide

Check this page often for Gus' updated listings of all types of cycling events in and around New Hampshire and New England. Scroll down for info on  shop, fun, road, tri, cyclocross or mountain bike rides/races.  Rides require, at minimum, an appropriate bike in good working order, water, and a helmet. We suggest a spare tube, energy food, maybe a little cash in case we stop, and your biggest smile! Many rides are held subject to weather. It's a good idea to confirm dates, time and any specific requirements, too. We'll see you out there — and have fun!
