Route 16, North Conway, NH
The base route is a 78 mile loop starting in North Conway, NH and heading north along route 16 into Gorham, then east to Gilead and back to North Conway via Hurricane Mountain (the hard way up). There is an optional 8 mile loop to climb cathedral ledge for anyone who wants to add in another mountain climb (cat4).
This route has a LOT of climbing and Hurricane Mountain (mile 66.81) has sustained climbs of 15-20% grade. You will be rewarded with some beautiful views in (my opinion) one of the nicest parts of NH. You'll even get a bonus mile or two in Maine :)
