The Rose MTN Rumble Returns!

This weekend!

“This is a 100k to benefit local conservation efforts in the Piscataquog Watershed and surrounding area. All proceeds benefit the Piscataguog Land Conservancy and this year, funds will be going directly to preserve additional land preservation in my home town of Lyndeborough along Cold Brook to add to an existing trail network. It’s a good ride along scenic dirt roads here in my neck of the woods.”

See more at Rose MTN Rumble. Thanks to Kris at 44 Bikes for sending this through.
