The ‘Rider’s Test’ has it all. Traversing three fabled local preserves, Becket, Nehantic, and Mount Archer, the course features Lyme’s ‘Three Bears’ in the form of three monster climbs.
At mile 9.5 of the Rider’s Test riders can choose to either complete the remaining 17 miles of the northern loop or return south through the Nehantic Forest back to Ashlawn Farm and the finish line.
Both rides depart at 8:15am.
