World Class Bicycling on New England Country Roads

At Ride Noho, we hand-pick the best cycling routes in the area to share with our guests. We know the least travelled roads, how to avoid the detours, the terrain and of course, the country stores with the best pastries! We are excited to share them with you.

Pedal your bike through and out of Northampton to the surrounding towns guided by friendly, experienced ride leaders. No need to refer to a cue sheet! All you need to do is enjoy the ride. You'll ride by beautiful farmland and through charming villages on quiet country roads. We go for miles without seeing a traffic light or stop sign (and sometimes a car). It's friendly, paced to meet the needs of the group and most important, it's fun! Since we're fixed based, we're able to plan our routes around the pure pleasure of cycling on them, not around the most expedient way to get to the next destination. Hey, we do these rides ourselves for fun in the off season!

Note: for all of our guests who have ridden with us multiple times, we are looking forward to sharing some new routes with you.


Our season runs from late May through mid October, and includes Training Camps for those looking to tune up their cycling skills and Cycling Events for all cyclists, from Flatlanders to Mountain Goats. Ride Noho has something for everyone. Check out our calendar to find the event for you, and register for your cycling getaway today!

For the Experienced Rider

(unless you attend an "A, B, C Ride" Weekend
or a "My First Road Bike" Camp)

Come prepared for some serious cycling. You must bring your own road bike with drop bars (unless you attend an A, B, C Ride Weekend), and should be fit enough to enjoy the rides. Three levels of rides are available, with "A" and "B" rides ranging in length from 45 to 55 miles:

"A" rides are for stronger riders who can easily handle 18-20 mph on the flats, and who enjoy rides with multiple climbs. These may total as much as 4000 vertical feet per ride, so 39/23 gearing is recommended.

"B" rides are for riders who can maintain 15-17 mph on the flats and enjoy multiple climbs totaling up to 3000 vertical feet per ride, so 39/26 or "triple" gearing is recommended. Although climbs may be included, the pace for these will be moderate.

"C" Rides are designed for novice cyclists who have done some limited riding, or for experienced cyclists who have been away from the sport. They will roll at an average of 13 to 15 miles per hour on the flats, and will have very little climbing. They will range from 25 to 35 miles in length, and will include a few strategically placed stops for quick refreshment. These rides are only available during our Wheels and Wine Weekend, Foliage Fling Weekend or custom events as requested.

"We had a fabulous time. Thank you for taking the time to make it a very enjoyable two days. (We) haven't stopped talking about the rides, and most importantly, the passion you have for making it special for your guests: atmosphere, nutrition, training . . ."
