The Rose Mountain Rumble
August 26, 2017 · Cycling Dirt Roads to Benefit Conservation
Gravel. Dirt. Gravel Grinder. Call it what you want. Jest at what you may refer to as “that’s just a road ride”. One thing is for certain: The Rose Mountain Rumble is one heck of a ride! We’ve unlocked all the best kept secrets of Southern New Hampshire’s vast network of well maintained dirt roads and selected courses to give novice riders a taste of adventure, while putting the hardiest of seasoned veteran cyclists skills to the test. The RMR’s courses twist and wind their way through old dirt road beds long forgotten linking quaint New England town centers akin to a snapshot from our nations scrap book. Riders will enjoy peace and quiet from the bustle they call home. Trace your way through historic, rock wall lined, narrow roads that lead to scenic overlooks. You haven’t truly ridden until you’ve ridden the Rose Mountain Rumble.

All proceeds from the RMR benefit the Piscataquog Land Conservancy (PLC), a non-profit land conservation organization working to conserve the natural resources and scenic beauty of the Piscataquog, Souhegan and Nashua River valleys of southern New Hampshire. The inaugural RMR was held in August 2015 as part of PLC’s successful campaign to protect 189 acres surrounding the summit of Rose Mountain in Lyndeborough, NH. The land was protected, the ride was great and the name stuck!
