The Timberland corporate grounds in Stratham, NH are headquarters for the King Challenge. Parking, Registration and post-ride Celebration are at this site; all rides start and end here too!
It’s a lovely spot with plenty of room for parking, bikes and their riders! We thank Timberland for graciously allowing us to use the site.
Travel: Using a GPS or online map, enter: 200 Domain Drive, Stratham, NH
Registration/Packet Pick-up: opens 7AM – please arrive early so you have time to prep for the Start!
Ride START: 9AM (all routes)
We have several route options to suit all types of riders, from families and casual riders to seasoned enthusiasts. You are welcome to pick a route that suits your abilities and free to ride at your own pace. All routes are well-marked. The King Challenge is not a race; the challenge is in meeting your own goals for the ride.
10 Mile Route – a gently rolling, family-friendly loop!
50K (30 Mile) Route – a bit more of a challenge, but manageable for most. Riders will cover some of the Kings’ favorite roads!
100K (62 mile) Route – a “Metric Century” for enthusiasts or any rider with a fair amount of saddle time. Rural roads (including a short section of packed gravel); stunning views of Great Bay are the reward!
There are supported rest stops along the routes where riders can take a quick break, refuel with snacks and drinks and answer Nature’s call.
Stops on the Medium and Long routes will also have bike techs on hand to address emergency mechanical issues.
After your ride, join us for a well-deserved celebration. Ride participants will be treated to plenty of tasty food items and re-hydrating fluids, a beer garden, music and more fun!
This is a great chance to kick back, relax and savor the accomplishments of the day among your fellow riders – well done!
