The Gran Course time cut-off point!

There is a time point on the Gran course at the 36 mi mark after the descent of Lincoln Gap. This is located at the Lincoln Gap Rd & South Lincoln Rd intersection. Any Gran riders not at this point by 10:30 a.m., it is strongly recommended that they turn onto the Medio Difficile route and turn left on South Lincoln Rd. After the second climb of Appalachian, there really is no short-cut home except in the sag wagon.

It is on the rider to be aware of their energy levels and make a judgment on whether to take on the full 110 miles.

Nomad Coffee*

ABOUT NOMAD
A husband & wife and their dream of quality espresso cuisine outside the cafe.
We’re bringing great coffee to the wilds of Vermont. Once upon a time, Nomad was a 1970’s travel trailer. We rescued him from an apple orchard in Ithaca, NY. Nomad arrived in Vermont in the late fall of 2015. Our vision was to retrofit the camper but as we embarked on this mission things became clear, Nomad was to be stripped down to the chassis and custom built from the wheels up. In June we launched a crowdfunding campaign to help us get our startup funds and we were able to raise 1/3 of our total needed funds. Since then we’ve poured all our energy and resources into Nomad and have just opened for business. Come down to the 5 corners and say ‘hello’ and grab a great espresso. We look forward to meeting you!
