Mountain bikers………. It’s time to get ready for the 2007 Mt. Greylock Go-Round, the annual mountain bike ride around the highest peak in Massachusetts. This year’s event will be held on Sunday, August 19 and will leave at 10 AM from the Greylock Glen gazebo just off Gould Road in Adams, MA. There will be plenty of directional signs from route #8 North and South of town. This is not a race, but because of the varying degrees of difficulty, riders should be in good physical condition and have a good deal of skill and endurance.

Because of road construction, this year’s ride will not actually go around the mountain as it has in the past. We have a new route that will go from South to North on the eastern flanks of the mountain. Total distance approximately 26 miles...and we’ll not be using the Stoney Ledge trail this year. There will still be nearly 4000 feet of vertical climbing. As always, there will be plenty of rest stops with food, and water being provided along the route.

Shorter rides through The Glen will take place as well. The shorter rides will be for novice/advanced novice riders and will be approximately 10 miles in length taking place on a variety of terrain from single track to old wood roads and ATV trails of varying difficulty.

These rides draw about 100 participants each year from all over New England and New York.

There will be a free burrito feast and swimming at The Glen after the rides.

Donations are accepted and will go to Friends Of The Glen.
