Mixed Terrain Ride

Mixed Terrain at its best with Honey 100 and the Honey Moon 100

The Honey 100 ride and Honey Moon 100 rides were more than an incredibly fun day (or night) on a bike! Riders discovered trails and back roads they’ve never seen before, saw what it is to ride in mixed terrain in this area (very different from the dirt roads of western Massachusetts and Vermont), ate very well, and shared a lot of memorable experiences.

We’d like to thank Honey Bikes for sponsoring this event, give huge and heart-felt appreciation to our fabulous ride leaders who showed groups of riders the way, acknowledge the very hard-working staff who cooked, worked the food stops, managed the myriad riders; we had 120 registered riders who came out! And we’d be remiss to not mention how much work the route designer did to develop and scout the very special, inspired routes.

Check out some great photos of the Honey 100!

The mid-ride food stop saw all of the riders during the day and night rides, and it was exceptionally well stocked with all kinds of food.

Food Stop. Look at that spread! The cookies in the foreground were very special and particularly big hits. The pie and ice cream hit the spot, too, as well as the savory sandwiches and chips.

Enjoying more great trails. The best pictures couldn’t be taken since it takes two hands to be on the bike through the coolest sections!

After the ride, no one was in a big hurry to leave, it is a day of riding and enjoying the company of old friends and new!

Team Rippers may or may not have known about the contest, but they were certainly vying for the “most fun” team prize.

Team Hustle Hive took Dirty Vertigo to task on the photo contest. Not only do they color coordinate together, but they match the pavement, too!

The Honey Moon riders weren’t a team, but they certainly rode as if they were! They had a ridiculously good time out there, lighting up the night - and keeping the good people who were supporting the ride on their toes until 10pm. One couple who came out for this ride had an anniversary to celebrate; the Honey Moon ride couldn’t have been more appropriate for them!

Honey Bikes - Inspiration for the Honey 100

This bike is one of the Honey Allroads titanium bikes, a bike that was seen under many riders for the Honey 100 since it’s most perfectly suited to gravel and mixed terrain riding.

This bike is one of the Honey Allroads titanium bikes, a bike that was seen under many riders for the Honey 100 since it’s most perfectly suited to gravel and mixed terrain riding.

Honey Bikes, builder of titanium road bikes, both rim and disc, gravel bikes, fat bikes, mountain bikes and more, created the Honey 100 years ago to show riders the joy of mixed terrain riding in our area. This ride lives on to inspire riders to get off of the main roads, experience trails, see what it’s like to ride in new places, and get to know others who are into adventure riding and experiential riding, as well.


Honey Allroads gravel bikes have been really well received by everyone wanting a super fun gravel/mixed terrain bike, those wanting a bike that does it all throughout the year, and, with a tire swap, they are also being very happily ridden as disc-brake road bikes.

Honey Allroads Titanium Bikes are the ideal gravel bike because they are:

  • Lightweight: It is as light or lighter than any bike in its price range.

  • Fast: Honey's chainstays are stiff, translating pedaling power directly to the rear wheel.

  • Responsive: The bike is designed to do exactly what its rider asks without rider fatigue.

  • Sure-footed: Keeping the tires on the ground is the best way to stay upright on loose surfaces. This bike maintains contact with the ground, rider confidence is the result.

  • Made in the USA: Honey Bikes are designed and hand-built in Massachusetts.

  • Price: is competitive with any other bike built with this same parts kit.

  • Titanium: This is the best material for a gravel bike frame. Titanium won't rust or corrode under any conditions. It's super durable for rough terrain and treatment.

  • Durable: Gravel bikes experience more stress and frame-testing situations such as rocks being flung up onto the frame and hitting potholes at speed than road bikes.The parts kit is curated for light-weight durability.

  • It fits and feels great: A Professional Bike fitting is included in the price of the bike.

  • Backed by us and our Professional Mechanics: 1 year of labor is included with your bike purchase.

Feedback from Honey Allroads titanium riders has been overwhelmingly positive, with people finding they are doing so much more on their bikes than they ever thought possible, relishing the ride qualities of the well-designed and hand-built titanium frames, and realizing just how nice it is to be able to ride hard and not worry about the bike.
