Boys & Girls Club 60 Mile Ride for 2017
Here is the Cue Sheet for the 60 mile route for GTD2017. In 2016, there were two minor changes in the 60 mile route after it rejoins the 100 mile route, before Rest Stop #4 in Greenfield. These changes are at mile 30.3 and mile 36.5 of the 60 mile route. There have been no changes in the 60 mile route since 2016.
At registration, we will give you a cue sheet for your route and a map, printed on sturdy paper. It will also have all the phone numbers you may need if you have a problem: Phone numbers for all the Rest stops, our sag drivers and Ryan Squires, our Command Center person. You should carry THAT cue sheet with you. We will also have maps for each route.
Here’s a link to the 60 mile route plotted on MapMyRide that has been updated for 2016. There are no changes in the route for 2017. You should be able to access that link. You may need to join MayMyRide (free) and “friend” John Bentley, the creator of the maps. This links can be uploaded to your phone or Garmin.
All three routes follow the same route from the Graduate Center to the 1st Rest Stop in Turners Falls. All routes cross 2 sets of RR tracks on the way to Turners Falls. Be very careful on these RR crossings. We suggest you SLOW DOWN OR DISMOUNT.
