What is the Greenwich Sgt. Roger Petrone 9-Mile Ride?

The Greenwich Sgt. Roger Petrone 9-Mile Ride starts at the Greenwich Audubon Society (613 Riversville Road, Greenwich, CT 06830) and finishing at Roger Sherman Baldwin Park on Sunday, June 25 (The Tri-State Trek's final day). We offer it to participants who want to support ALS TDI but don't have the time or inclination to ride 100-270 miles. The route, featuring some challenging climbs and fast down hills, is best suited for intermediary level riders at minimum. The ride will be fully supported with road crews and bike mechanics. The Audubon Society sits adjacent to Sunday's Rest Stop 4, located at the top of John St., providing hydration and snacks to Day 3 Tri-State Trek riders arriving from New Haven. ALL Tri-State Trek riders - Sgt. Petrone Ride & Day 3 - will ride together from John St. to the finish line at 2:00pm. Sgt. Petrone Riders should arrive by 1:00pm and can park cars at the Audubon Society. Transportation is not provided back to the Audubon Society. Find information about the Greenwich Sgt. Roger Petrone 9-Mile Ride route at Ride > The Route.
