The Franklin Land Trust, a nonprofit devoted to the preservation of farms and forestland, will host bicyclists from more than 30 states in the seventh annual Deerfield Dirt Road Randonnee. Grab a two-wheeled pet and head for the starting line at 9:30 a.m. before coasting along the 40-mile trek on the 300-year-old carriage roads adjacent to the Green River, careening between the towns of Colrain and Leyden, and ending at noon in Green River Village. Like a sprinter in a poncho, the tour will run rain-or-shine.
In addition to supplying snacks along the course, Black Sheep Deli nurtures riders with a variety of sandwiches and cold soda for lunch between 10:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. After dismounting, satisfy road-weary stomachs with a barbecue dinner, including ribs, chicken, brown rice, and grease bowls for thirsty bikes served from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. This Groupon also includes a post-ride pint of Preservation Ale from the Berkshire Brewing Company.
