Welcome to the site for all the latest information about Connecticut's dirty little century, roughly 118miles at the end of April, about half off paved surfaces. Please start by reading The Basics (this is a link) for information about the ride.

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.

Happy New Year...belated

With the dropping of the ball and other New Year's traditions, we passed into that magical time when the current year's Detour de Connecticut has yet to be run.  All those adventures are still in store, what fun!

The Detour route in January
The is from the run through Porter Reservoir to the finish.

So it seems southern New England is actually having snow fall this year after last winter's near lack of the white stuff.  Maybe someday I'll think up a "Ski Tour de CT," but for now, the traditional bike version is drawing near, only three months to go until late April is upon us.  I'm hoping to give the route another run by late February or early March to check for any necessary changes, and then I'll get this year's Basics posted and it's all systems go for the last weekend in April.  Let's get riding!

  1. Hi Salem --

    You really are a Hardcore rider! My hat is off to you. We met after the East Coast Bikeway presentation at the Manchester Town Hall this evening 1/22/13. The same day you put up this snowy post! I wasn't able to create a profile for myself, because I am a social media illiterate, but I do want to follow this blog. I am adding this ride to my 2013 calendar, and I will try to recruit other riders who aren't afraid to get their bikes dirty. Please give me a call if you would like some company for your recon rides.
