Two Ferry Ride – September

twoferry1 Two Ferry Ride – SeptemberCycling Concepts Two Ferry Ride takes place on Sunday, September 14th, 2014. It offers three riding loops that cross the Connecticut River on the historic ferries. After riding, participants are treated to an extraordinary cookout – a great way to relax and recover. For 2014 we will continue with the overwhelmingly successful Octobeerfest.

The original loop is 60+ miles with challenging hills. The full century (100 miles) is a leg-destroying loop for riders who like to test their limits. The 30+ mile route is a one-ferry, hilly, recreational loop that starts and ends at the shop.
