Petersham Challenge Ride

Petersham Challenge Ride Professional Review and Guide

"The Petersham Challenge will take you through the peaceful but steep hills of west-central Massachusetts for a tour of quaint New England hilltop towns to the southeast of the mighty Quabbin Reservoir. You’ll visit Barre, North and West Brookfield, and the blink-and-you’ll-miss-it New Braintree town center.

The ride begins in quiet Petersham, with its inviting town common and convenient general store, which serves a full breakfast and lunch menu. The towns along the route are quaint, and the scenery is stunning, but be prepared for a good workout—the hills are frequent and steep. Fortunately, many great descents can be enjoyed along the route in between the many climbs."
