If you have completed the Elevation Challenge and you want more ideas of where to ride, visit www.bikewoodstock.com. You will find suggested routes for tarmac (paved), hard pack (dirt and gravel) and single track (mountain bike rides).
Here is a sampling of additional road rides:
Rochester-Bethel Mtn Loop – 65 mi, 5,816ft. climb. http://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/364871995
Long Trail-Plymouth Loop – 20 mi., 1,687 ft. climb. http://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/761988431
Sharon-West Hartford Loop – 45 mi.
Hardpack (Gravel, Dirt):
Garvin Hill Loop – 15 mi., 1.364 ft. climb
Single Track (Mountain Bike)
Gotta hand it to Omer & Bob’s in Lebanon for putting together a comprehensive guide to official Single Track trails in the area. Check out their website at http://www.omerandbobs.com/local-mountain-bike-rides/.
The unofficial single track trails are also pretty outrageously good. However, you gotta know somebody… There is typically a group of riders who meet Thursday evenings during the summer in the parking area just 1 mile up Cox District Road from Route 4 by the Woodstock Union High School. If you happen to be there at 6pm or so you will find some folks with local knowledge… If you do choose to ride there or anywhere on private property, be respectful, do no harm, leave it better than you found it. We are but travelers…
