Seacoast Century

Dear Seacoast Centurions,

I just looked at the Portsmouth forecast, and Saturday looks like a washout :-( On Sunday, the forecast is for a few showers in the morning and partly cloudy by the late afternoon. So, I am planning to ride Sunday.

My plan is to ride Sunday starting at Hampton Beach at 9:30 AM and ride north until I'm half tired and then turn around. I have an inland route on the way back in case we get an afternoon sea breeze.

There is a trade off between time in the saddle versus speed. I plan on riding at a moderate but deliberate pace to do the 64 miles to Cape Neddick and back in less than 5 hours in the saddle.

If the weather is nice enough, I was planning to stop in York, ME and get sandwiches to take to Cape Neddick for a picnic. There is a restaurant on the Cape, but its jammed on Seacoast days.

On Sunday, September 25th - Hampton Beach - Seacoast Century
  • I plan to be registered and ready to ride at 9:30 AM.
  • Starting Point Map - Hampton Beach State Park
  • Route Map - Hampton Beach - Cape Neddick
