Here's how to register for the Rose Mountain Rumble


General Information

The RMR is located at the Historic Lyndeborough Town Hall, 1131 Center Road, Lyndeborough, NH 03082.  9am ride start.  Plan on arriving a bit early between 8am and 8:30am to sign in.  The courses are marked with directional, color-coded markers but all riders should rely on the cue sheets and GPX files provided to navigate the RMR’s courses.  Two water stops are provided but be sure to bring enough water to be self-sufficient.  A lunch will be provided at the finish thanks to the Lyndeborough Women’s Club BUT all riders should have sufficient food and supplements to fuel themselves throughout their ride.  No food is provided along the course.  Riders will go through town centers in Francestown and Lyndeborough which both conveniently have general stores where you can purchase additional supplies.  We recommend a minimum of 32mm tires, small tool kit for repairs, spare/s and patch kit to repair flat/s and any additional items you typically bring on your more epic rides.  This is a ride and not a race.  All registered riders will be entered into a raffle for a chance to win a few prizes from our growing list of sponsors.  All registration fees go towards helping the Piscataquog Land Conservancy’s on going efforts of conservation.  Ride with pride knowing you’re helping to preserve the local terrain for all to enjoy!

The 100k

Classic New England dirt roads featuring narrow, rock wall  lined, twisty, scenic paths less traveled. The course boasts well over 80% gravel roads.  This one is where tall tales begin and adventures are put to memory.

  • Water stops are provided along the course, but be sure to bring sufficient water and food to be self sufficient.
  • Bring a spare or two and be sure don’t forget your tool kit.
  • It is advised you run bare minimum of 32mm tires.  40mm’s are even better.
  • Lunch is provided at course’s end.
  • There is a 10 mile bonus lap to bring the total mileage to 70 miles with one heck of a climb at the very end for those who feel they didn’t get enough climbing in…

NEW FOR THE 2020 RMR: The 50 Miler!

The Rose Mountain Rumble’s 50 miler gets it’s very own route!  If the 40 miler is just too short but the 100k is a bit too long, then the 50’s gotta be “just so”.  This course will not disappoint.  Enjoy the finer points of the 20 and 40 miler but you’re in for a real treat as you wave goodbye to those riders and you follow the 100k riders up Bunker Hill Road.  This quickly turns to dirt and you part ways with the 100k as you ride deep into Francestown’s off the beaten track roads and deep into the thick of good old fashioned New England gravel.  Finish right back where you started as the aroma of lunch lures you home!

  • 50 Miler Approximate Elevation Gain: 1432m / 4698′
  • Water stops are provided along the course, but be sure to bring sufficient water and food to be self-sufficient.
  • Bring a spare or two and be sure don’t forget your tool kit.

The 40 Miler

The Rose Mountain Rumble’s 40 mile course option might only be 40 miles, but it is no joke.  This is a rumble.  This is your first taste of the areas finest.  A fast paced ripper chocked full of scenic dirt roads, good tree cover, scenic overlooks, technical descents and climbs.  Bring your A-Game and drag your friends up from Bean Town.  You won’t be sorry.

The 20 Miler

The RMR’s 20 mile course option is a great introduction for families and beginner riders who want to get out for an afternoon of scenic fun and enjoy a laid back, relatively simple pedal.  The course meanders through Lyndeborough and connecting towns featuring scenic overlooks, historic High Bridge (a great place for a snack and rest!), the Trebuchet at Yankee Farm and the return trip to your starting point where lunch is waiting for all riders.

  • Water stops are provided along the course, but be sure to bring sufficient water and food to be self sufficient.
  • Don’t forget a spare tube, patch kit, tool kit, and your helmet!
