The Major Taylor Century is back, co-presented by Seven Hills Wheelmen as part of Gran Fondo New England. Noncompetitive bicycle routes of 35, 40, 65 and 104 miles are offered on paved roads (with some options for hard-packed gravel segments, rideable on a road bike, just to keep the cyclo-cross vibe) highlighting autumn landscapes in Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts. Discount entry fee of $75 has been extended to 5 p.m. Sept. 27; day-of-ride fee is $20 more. Entry fee includes a T-shirt, a souvenir New Belgium beer glass, and a nourishing post-ride meal at Thompson Speedway, where you can enjoy UCI pro-level cyclo-cross racing and the New England Builders' Ball, showcasing the region's bicycle framebuilders. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Major Taylor Association. It's all part of the KMC Cross Fest, which has moved over from Providence.
