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!

The Krempels Center has proven invaluable in the recovery from Dad’s stroke a decade ago. He, other members, and their families are offered the unparalleled sense of community in a way I never could have imagined. It is truly a special place living up to its mission as “an organization dedicated to improving the lives of people living with brain injury from trauma, tumor, or stroke.”
This July in my inaugural Tour de France, I had the dubious distinction of hitting the pavement on stage one resulting in a broken scapula and separated shoulder. I soldiered on for three more days until I was time cut on a cruel stage four. At the pinnacle of my sport, I was left emotionally tattered. Until I put it in perspective. Dad -- and all of those living with brain injury -- exhibit tenacity, perseverance, and determination far greater than what happens on two wheels. If my fifteen minutes of unexpected name-in-the-news garnered me a greater following to direct people to the Krempels Center, then there’s been a silver lining to that cloud.
If you’re interested in supporting my fund-raising efforts, you can do so here, and to learn more about the Krempels Center please visit the KrempelsCenter.org.
Thank you, Ted
