CT Challenge 100-Mile Course

No ride can beat this 100-miler for its combination of challenge and beauty. It is New England’s most fully-supported century, and it will be memorable. The 100-mile route takes cyclists through communities in Fairfield, Litchfield and New Haven counties where there will be rest stops waiting for you with bike mechanics and plenty of awesome food and biker snacks. Century riders will encounter multiple ascents and descents throughout their ride.

  • …you are currently in excellent physical condition
  • …you have the opportunity to train extensively for your ride
  • …you have cycled 100 miles during your training or you can cycle 50 miles in under 3.5 hours (15 mph avg. speed)
Estimated time on the 100-mile course: 5 to 9 hours

Note: The bike course closes at 5 pm. Riders still on the course at 5:00 pm may be picked up by support vehicles.
