New Hampshire’s Premier Gravel Ride
‘Cycling Dirt Roads To Benefit Conservation’
The 6th Annual Rose Mountain Rumble was a welcome occasion to enjoy the beauty of late summer in New England via the scenic roads of Lyndeborough and surrounding towns. The event kicked off at the Historic Town Hall and from there the 150 riders set out on one of the four courses, varying in length and difficulty level. Riders of every ability are welcome, with a variety of route options from a 25-miler for more casual riders, and an intermediate 45-miler, to 66 and 80-mile courses that challenge the most competitive gravel grinder. The RMR is capped at 150 riders. The ride begins and ends at Lyndeborough’s historic Center Hall, with a delicious post-ride lunch provided by the Wilton-Lyndeborough Women’s Club. The registration fee also includes a tee shirt designed by local bike builder and graphic artist Kris Henry.
All proceeds from the RMR benefit the Piscataquog Land Conservancy (PLC), a non-profit land conservation organization working to conserve the natural resources and scenic beauty of the Piscataquog, Souhegan, and Nashua River valleys of southern New Hampshire. The inaugural RMR was held in August 2015 as part of PLC’s successful campaign to protect 189 acres surrounding the summit of Rose Mountain in Lyndeborough, NH. The land was protected, the ride was great and the name stuck!
A special thank you to all event sponsors. We hope to see you and more of your friends again for the Rose Mountain Rumble!
