Special announcement After much debate and deliberation, we have decided to cancel the 2020 MWC+. We have emailed all our registered participants and registration was closed weeks ago. Be well. Stay safe. If you have nay questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Packet pick up is 6-8pm the night before the Ride, as well as 6-8am the day of the Ride. You can register for the ride Friday evening or Saturday from 6-7:30am.
All cyclists will embark between 6 & 8AM from the Tin Mountain Nature Learning Center on Bald Hill Road in Albany, NH.
The Mount Washington Century+ (MWC+) 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 is it!
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 MWC+ 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. Looking for a GPX or TCX file of the course, go here.
The MWC+ 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.
REFUND/EXCHANGE POLICY NO REFUNDS AFTER June 19, 2019. Riders that have registered for the Century may not trade, sell, or exchange their registration with anyone else without the expressed permission of Tin Mountain Conservation Center.
The first 210 registered cyclists will receive an event T-shirt (different from the jersey) and a fabulous meal awaits returning riders at the Nature Learning Center, where they can also relax in the library, stroll on the 138-acre sanctuary, or tour the beautiful “green” facility built with local materials and craftsmanship and boasting of solar heat and electricity.
THERAPEUTIC SPORT MASSAGE will be onsite for exhausted MWC+ riders.
