    Default Rose Mountain Rumble / 5th Annual 2019!

    We’re getting close to the 5th annual RMR!

    What you need to know:

    - Saturday August 24th, 2019
    - 8am sign in and 9am start
    - 20, 40, 50 mile options and one heck of a 100k. Your choice.
    - Head on over to rosemountainrumble.com to register via Bikereg !!!


    No matter what, you come for ride but stay for the meal. The Lunch Ladies outdid themselves last year and there’s rumors that will be the case this year! All routes are mashups of my favorite local rides. You want NH gravel? Come and get some! Hope to see you there. Come say HEY.

    All proceeds to benefit The Piscataquog Land Conservancy. Give them a follow on Instagram @plc_nh or head on over to their website for more information about their mission in New England.

    OK, now that I am a semi-local resident, this looks like a possibility!

    Dude, that is Job #1 ! Funny, this RMR event is the same weekend I was planning to go up to Kingdom Trails and do some renting of the latest-and-greatest to see where I may want to go in this upgrade.

    This is a great event. Kris and crew do a fantastic job laying out a course and putting on the event.

    Sorry to say that this will be my first year missing it.

    No need for a mtb. The first time year I did it on a Calfee road bike with 25mm tires. The other years have been with 28mm or 30mm. It just dirt :)

    Great ride. Check it out if you can.

    Nice gravel backroads. A good mix of hills with rewards for views as well as some nice rolling terrain.

    I rode in #3 and will be back next year for #6 . All the routes are great. The more you do, the more you enjoy. Great food at the finish!

    This year I was in the area early and had the opportunity to ride some of the route again since I cannot make it this month. The whole area is great to ride. Don't miss the old stone wall on Cider Mill Road on the way to the finish.

    I ride that area with 700x35c Racing Ralphs at around 35psi. I am aggressive on the loose downhills so a 35c with a little tread works well for me. Run what ya brung.

    A nice stop in the sun after coming out of the tree cover and just before the Pumpkin Chunkin Trebuchet maybe 6 miles from the finish IIRC

    If you see this sign, go for it. Old shutdown road with a new walking bridge and a blast to bomb through as the path tightens. Cannot remember if on the route but right in the neighborhood. Just make sure the bridge is not slick when you hit it.

    Get signed up all!

    We're about a week out! I'll be prepping routes late next week. I think next year I'll be changing one of the routes up a bit and maybe adding one. There's SO much more I haven't shared over here in my neck of the woods. The Lunch Ladies are ready to outdo themselves again this year I have no doubt. I always joke: "You come for the ride, but stay for the meal."

    Looking forward to seeing you all out there!

    OK Kris, the stars aligned and I will be there for the 100k. Hope to meet you, but if I miss you in the scrum, have a great ride!

    Well, made it p to RMR 2019. It was a really great ride, very mellow event atmosphere, cool historic town hall host facility. The route is stupendous, beautiful, a bit of everything, rollers, techy connector sections, 50mph pavement descent at one point. The weather was perfect, the lunch was great, couldn't ask for more!

    Enjoyed meeting Kris H (briefly) and checking out the many 44 models I saw on the road and in the parking lot. Apologies, didn't take many pics, but this must be a classic picture spot:
