The original first-day route, this is the longest and most difficult leg of the event. The first 50 miles are quite hilly; riders face long, grueling climbs as well as very fast descents. The last 60 miles are a combination of rolling hills and flats that if not for the first 50 miles, could be considered fairly easy. 

This ride begins at 5:30 a.m. and depending on pace and rest times, can last from 4 hours to 14 hours. Most riders arrive at MMA between 12:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m.

The fundraising minimum for any one-day route finishing at Mass Maritime Academy is $4,000 if riders register before March 1, and is $6,500 if riders register on or after March 1. For more information on fundraising minimums, please click here.

*The fundraising minimums are only valid until the route is closed*
