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.
In years past, about now, I'd be giving final tidbits of information, warnings, thanks, and other general drivel in preparation for the event in a week's time, but that all came to an end last year with shifting the ride to the beginning of September. So, relax, kick back, and then, well, it's nice out again so go take a bike ride. Even in the fall, The Detour is a long ride, so we'll hope to see a lot of fit fiddles the first weekend of September 2017!
