Day 1

THE WHITE MOUNTAINS
120.1 miles, 7716' elevation

120-miles of awe inspiring views through the White Mountains. The route we have chosen is known to many local riders as the Grand Tour. This day starts by riding north following the Pemigewasset River Valley to Lincoln and then taking the Kancamagus Highway to Bear Notch. From Bear Notch we will ride to Route 302 and through Crawford Notch past ski areas and grand hotels. In Twin Mountain we will head south again on Route 3 until we hit the bike path that will take us through Franconia Notch, back to the Pemigewasset River Valley and eventually, with tired legs and triumphant spirits, to the Inn.
