The Hampshire 100 is one of New England’s endurance mountain bike events. It started out as a 100k race. Then a few years ago they added a 100-mile option for the very fit or very sadistic (or both). This year, a “kinder, gentler” option was added too: 50k. The usual 100k loop was shortened to a 50k loop; 50k riders would do it once, 100k riders twice, and 100-milers three times.

This year I once again took part in the Hampshire 100. I opted for the 100k version. The course was different this year. Instead of one big 100k loop it was two 50k laps. There were three 50k laps for the 100 milers.
