Gus' Ride, Race and Event Guide

Check this page often for Gus' updated listings of all types of cycling events in and around New Hampshire and New England. Scroll down for info on  shop, fun, road, tri, cyclocross or mountain bike rides/races.  Rides require, at minimum, an appropriate bike in good working order, water, and a helmet. We suggest a spare tube, energy food, maybe a little cash in case we stop, and your biggest smile! Many rides are held subject to weather. It's a good idea to confirm dates, time and any specific requirements, too. We'll see you out there — and have fun!

Thursday Night Lights

Fall 2023

Our annual fall ride series is back! We meet every Thursday until November 17th weather permitting. The ride is along the Rockingham Rail Trail which has mixed surfaces Gravel, Cyclocross, hybirds, mountain bikes and fat bikes all work well. This ride isn't about the speed, it's about fun and fellowship. That being said there's usually a faster group that leads the way. We'll all gather in Epping and return for a total of about 15 miles. With the waning daylight hours this right will be eventually all in the dark, so bring a bright that will last at least 1.5 hours. You'll also want a repair kit with a tube that fits your tire. I
