We look for places with great customer service that are willing and able to accommodate the number of riders and volunteers we have on the NEC, and also provide a hearty dinner and breakfast. We want air-conditioned lodgings in peaceful and scenic locations, easy to get in and out of without having to dodge lots of traffic. They have to be reasonably priced, since our primary purpose is to raise money for a great cause. And they must be well-situated to enable us to ride approximately 75 miles to the next day’s stopping point.
All this is no small task! So we’re pleased to show you the results of this work and introduce the NEC accommodations for 2024. Occasionally there are circumstances beyond our control that force last-minute changes, so the list below is subject to change, but this shows you the planned accommodations for this summer.
The all-you-can-eat breakfast and dinner menus will vary, but all will feature healthy choices chosen with calorie-consuming cyclists in mind! Lunch is on your own each day, but we will try to provide good suggestions for places you might want to stop. There will also be two – four rest stops along each day’s route, stocked with water, Gatorade, sweet and salty snacks, and fruit.
