Climbing and Riding in New England and Beyond

East Side Climbing Circuit

Ride leaves from: Dave's Coffee

There are many ways to do some variant of this ride, but the basic idea is you start on South Main near Wickenden, and then head north going up every hill you encounter along the way. This version doesn't include all the hills, just the most formidable. Of those, Jenckes and South Court are very tough. Bowen is the real menace, however, since it combines bone-rattling cobbles with a peak gradient of almost 30%.
