Mount Washington Century+

2021 TBD 



For the $50 registration fee, riders will get some of what they will need to complete the ride.  The Mt. Washington Century+ Goodie Bag includes:

  • A 40 oz Wide Mouth “Parks for All” Hydroflask (retail value $40-$45)
  • The complete Mt. Washington Century+ travelogue. This, almost mile-by-mile narrative, describes the route as well as the natural and social history of the route that you’ll ride
  • A socially distanced approved “make your own GORP kit”
  • energy snacks
  • Your bag MAY also include a surprise inside such as: vintage hillclimb T shirt, socks, Tin Mountain memberships and even tickets and discounts for entry into the next Mt. Washington Century+

What doesn’t fit in the “goodie bag” is the courage, determination, inner strength and spirit that you’ll need to complete this ride on your own or with the help of family and friends.  We know you have it in you to tackle this 100+ mile ride, especially knowing that you’re supporting Tin Mountain with every mile.  Tin Mountain hosts and benefits from the Mt. Washington Century+ (MWC+) and the Mt. Washington Auto Road Bicycle Hillclimb (  This year, in an effort to keep riders, staff, and volunteers healthy and well, we’ve had to modify and cancel these events respectively. THANKS for registering and participating in the Alternative Mt. Washington Century+ and for supporting Tin Mountain.


What follows below is the info for the MWC+ and NOT the Alternative MWC.

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!

MWC+ Elevation STATS�
Min:         443ft
Max:        2034ft
Ascent:     6128ft
Descent:   -6128ft

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.
