Welcome to the site for all the latest information about Connecticut's dirty little century, roughly 118miles in early September, about half off paved surfaces. Please start by reading The Basics (this is a link) for information about the ride (if current year Basics is not yet available, the previous year will give a general gist).

Rather than answer individual questions repeatedly, please address questions as "comments" to the MOST RECENT post and I will answer in a blog posting for all to see.

It's a labor of love

Just another warm February day yesterday and I was out for 9 hours of recon riding. Hopefully, I will have this year's loop finalized and posted within a week or two. The good news is I'm discovering a lot of cool roads, and, of course, a few dead ends.

(Yes, it was cold, and no, this won't make it on the route...this year.)

Well, actually, there's more good news than that. So far, I've found three additional dirt sections to break up the easternmost south to north run of the ride. Still looking at a few different options in the region of Goodwin State Forest, but that will require another jaunt out that way. I really liked last year's ride, but I'm thinking this one will be even better.

A teaser shot: covered bridge to be added to this year's ride
(Possibly 2, if they place the new bridge on the Hop River Trail in time)

So make your plans, and come on out; it'll be a good time!
