The Mt. Washington Century ride is fast becoming known as New England’s Most Challenging Centurytm. We have mountain passes that thrill the eye and challenge the soul. For those wanting to ‘test their personal best’, the Mt. Washington Century Ride is it!
Century Ride Elevation STATS
No landscape rivals the natural beauty of Mt. Washington and the Presidential Range, and a Century Ride through three notches and around the base of New England’s tallest mountain is without equal. The 109 mile route for Tin Mountain Conservation Center’s Annual Mt. Washington Century+ travels through fragrant spruce-fir and majestic northern hardwood forests, across pastoral farm fields, along sparkling streams with stunning views of the alpine peaks in the Range. Abbreviated 44- and 88-mile routes provide wonderful rides for those wanting a little less than a Century. The Century is completely supported with five aid stations along the 109-mile course (three on the 88-mile and two on the 44-mile), support vehicles with ham radio operators, and a bike repair support vehicle.
The 109-mile route around Mt. Washington leaves the Albany/Conway area on the Kancamagus Highway, over Bear Notch Road to Bartlett, follows Rt 302 through Crawford Notch to Rt 115 in Twin Mountain, along Rt 115 to Rt 2 past Jefferson Notch and into Gorham before heading south on Rt 16 past the Mt. Washington Auto Road and over Pinkham Notch. From Pinkham Notch the route drops into Glen and back to the Conway area via Rt 16 and the scenic West Side Road.

The Mt. Washington Century Ride continues to grow in popularity, with participants from as far away as the west coast taking part. Riders are always pleased with the route and support received. Many have ridden in every Mt. Washington Century Ride since the inception in 2001.
