The RMR 80 Miler

We’ve added a brand new course for 2022: The RMR 80 Miler.  This is a serious endeavor and not for the faint of heart.  Experienced cyclists read on: If the 66 miler is no joke, the RMR 80 mile is a true challenge. A minimum of 32mm tires are recommended. The course begins at the Historic Lyndeborough Old Town Hall along side the 66, 45 and 25 mile courses, quickly enters gravel at Dutton Road, follows the 25 and 45 mile courses but takes a turn in Francestown, NH with the 66 miler and starts up a climb that will wake you up if you’re still sleepy.  Mom and Dad beware. This one follows the 66 miler but when you return to Lyndeborough, riders get a treat and head into Temple, NH for some really sweet scenery and amazing stretches of gravel roads.  The 80 mile course is equally a fast paced ripper chocked full of scenic dirt roads, good tree cover, scenic overlooks, technical descents and climbs but takes you into some rough territory.  Be prepared.  There’s some nasty sections.  Nothing too scary but certainly not a walk in the park!  This is a challenging course where memories will be made and puts your mettle to the test.

  • 80 mile Approximate Elevation Gain: 2,020m / 6,630′
  • Water stops are provided along the course, but be sure to bring sufficient water and food to be self sufficient.
  • Bring a spare or two and be sure not to forget your tool kit.
  • It is advised you run a minimum of 32mm tires.  40mm’s are even better.
  • Lunch is provided at course’s end.
  • Sign in is at 7:30am for 80 milers to allow riders to get on the course early so not to miss lunch!

The RMR 66 Miler

The Rose Mountain Rumble’s 66 mile course option takes you out of town and into the sticks.  If the 45 miler is no joke, the RMR 66 mile takes things up a few notches.  We’re bringin’ the hammer with the nails with this one!  A minimum of 32mm tires are recommended. The course begins at the Historic Lyndeborough Old Town Hall along side the 80, 45, and 25 mile courses, quickly enters gravel at Dutton Road, follows the 25 and 45 mile courses but takes an abrupt turn in Francestown, NH and starts up a climb that is not for the faint of heart.  Leave the at kids home.  Pack an extra set of undies and make sure you have mom’s phone number just in case. The 66 mile course is equally a fast paced ripper chocked full of scenic dirt roads, good tree cover, scenic overlooks, technical descents and climbs but takes you into some rough territory.  Be prepared.  There’s some nasty sections.  Nothing too scary but certainly not a walk in the park!  This is a super fun challenging course.  It won’t kill you but like the 45, certainly puts your mettle to the test.  The course boasts well over 80% gravel roads.  This one is where tall tales begin and adventures are put to memory.

  • 66 mile Approximate Elevation Gain: 1,772m / 5,814′
  • Water stops are provided along the course, but be sure to bring sufficient water and food to be self sufficient.
  • Bring a spare or two and be sure not to forget your tool kit.
  • It is advised you run a minimum of 32mm tires.  40mm’s are even better.
  • Lunch is provided at course’s end.

The RMR 45 Miler

We’ve added more gravel to the old 40 mile course and added a bit more mileage!  The Rose Mountain Rumble’s 45 mile course option might only be 45 miles, but it is no joke.  This is a rumble AND we’ve got some new twists for you! A minimum of 32mm tires are recommended. The course begins at the Historic Lyndeborough Old Town Hall, and quickly enters gravel at Dutton Road.  This is your first taste of the areas finest.  The 45 mile course is a fast paced ripper chocked full of scenic dirt roads, good tree cover, scenic overlooks, technical descents and climbs.  We’ve added some 6th class jeep roads in there for good measure too.  Nothing too scary but certainly not a walk in the park.  It’s been described as a super fun course that won’t kill you but certainly puts your mettle to the test.  The course boasts well over 70% gravel roads.  So bring your A-Game and drag your friends up from Bean Town.  You won’t be sorry.

  • 45 Miler Approximate Elevation Gain: 995m / 3,264′
  • Water stops are provided along the course, but be sure to bring sufficient water and food to be self sufficient.
  • Bring a spare or two and be sure don’t forget your tool kit.
  • Lunch is provided at course’s end.

The RMR 25 Miler

Formerly the 20 miler, we added more gravel and the Rose Mountain Rumble’s 25 mile course option is a great introduction for families and beginner riders who want to get out for an afternoon of scenic fun and enjoy a laid back, relatively simple pedal.  The course begins at the Historic Lyndeborough Old Town Hall, and enters Dutton Road along with the 45 mile, 66 mile, and 80 mile options.  Dutton Road along with many of the roads on the 25 Mile course is a well maintained current use gravel road.  From here the course meanders through Lyndeborough and connecting towns featuring scenic overlooks, historic High Bridge (a great place for a snack and rest!), the Trebuchet at Yankee Farm and the return trip to your starting point where lunch is waiting for all riders.

  • 25 Miler Approximate Elevation Gain: 509m / 1,670′
  • Water stops are provided along the course, but be sure to bring sufficient water and food to be self sufficient.
  • Don’t forget a spare tube, patch kit, tool kit, and your helmet!
