About the Ride: Our Discover New Britain routes are designed to be enjoyed as a tour, not a race. The rides feature urban and rural scenery, including historic New Britain neighborhoods like Little Poland, the stunning residential architecture around Walnut Hill Park, and of course the acclaimed New Britain Museum of American Art. Whether you live in New Britain or have never experienced it, we are sure you will DISCOVER something that you never expected to find.
Depending on the tour you select, you’ll experience four different bikeways (CT Fastrak, Hanover Pond Trail, Quinnipiac River Gorge, and the Farmington Canal), and you’ll visit other parks like Batterson Park and Willow Brook Park; the Shuttle Meadow, Wassel, Kenmere and Hallmare Reservoirs; Hubbard Park and Merimere Reservoir, and Hanover Pond and Quinnipiac Gorge. The 25- and 50-mile tours will have a few climbs, but the brunch after the ride will make it all worthwhile!
