Mount Washington Century • Description

Mt. Washington Century is a scenic ride through the tranquil forests of New England, leading around the base of Mount Washington.
The century starts at Tin Mountain Conservation Center and leaves the Conway area on Kancamagus Highway. After about 15 miles, the route turns onto Bear Notch Road, which leads over a hill and down into Bartlett.
Route 302 continues towards Twin Mountain, climbing short but steep Crawford Notch and passing through Notchland and Fabyan. Fabyan is located next to Bretton Woods, the base of Mount Washington Cog Railway.
A few miles on Route 3 lead to Carroll, where the ride continues on Route 115. Route 115 eventually merges into Route 2, which leads up Jefferson Notch, through Bowman, and down into Gorham, the northernmost point.
From here on the ride follows Route 16. A long gradual ascent to Pinkham Notch visits Glen House, the base of Mount Washington Auto Road. The course then drops into Glen, Intervale, and North Conway. Scenic West Side Road avoids Mount Washington Valley tourist traffic and heads back to Conway and Tin Mountain Conservation Center.

Mount Washington Century • Personal Notes

I travelled to New Hampshire for the famous Mount Washington Hillclimb. Since such a long trip only to ride up a mountain seemed almost not worth it, I decided to add another day and ride around the mountain as well.
