My son rode the 30 and I rode the 100, and we both had a fantastic experience. He (at 15 years old) was relatively new to that distance and said it was a well-put-together route, not too many hills, but enough to keep it interesting. My 100 was quite the challenge with all those hills. … Rest stops were perfectly spaced Read More »
What Participants Say About The Tour
This was my first time riding this event and I wanted to let you know what a great time I had.

Great organization, friendly and helpful volunteers, easy and fast registration, … Enjoyed it so much we’ll do it next year Read More »
We just wanted to congratulate you on the fantastic success of the event yesterday! My teammates and I thoroughly enjoyed the event and to be honest got quite a rush on the downhill of the 50-miler detour. WOW…what a ride! I am fairly certain my Team will make an appearance every year from here on … Thoroughly enjoyed the event Read More »
All the volunteers are wonderful, your sag wagons (or rider support vans), were so visible and seen everywhere (and I did the 100) and your after-ride spread was incredible. It is a pleasure to participate in such an awesome event.
I rode this past Sunday. Great event once again. The markers were perfect. P.D.
I have participated in the Tour de Litchfield Hills numerous times over the past decade, and I would have to say it’s the best run tour in the state. K.A.
I was a first-time participant in the 4.2-mile walk this morning and loved it. Will definitely be back next year, hopefully trying one of the bike routes. I had foot surgery 3 months ago to repair torn tendons so being able to finish this was a personal goal for me J. – L
I rode my first century ride on Sunday with your event and wanted to thank you and all the volunteers for organizing a great event. It was very well organized from registration right through to the finish line. The course was well-marked, there were crossing guards at all the dicey intersections, and the people at … Well organized from registration to finish line Read More »
By far the best century I’ve ever done … and I’ve done several. Most often, it seems organizers simply pick a course to meet the required distance without any thought to the quality of the experience. The roads of TOLH were obviously chosen with great care. Well done! J.K.
Just a note to let you know about the enjoyable time I had yesterday. First time riding in the Northwest hills of CT – from the flat lands of Guilford, CT. Big shout out to all the volunteers, everyone was so pleasant. The course was well marked, food was great. The food looked good as … Big shout out to all the volunteers Read More »
Once again, you all did a great job with this event. The routes are all very well marked, the rest stops were well stocked and the weather you ordered was perfect. This is my third year, second on the 100, and I’m already looking forward to next year. Obviously, a very good cause (one of … Routes were well marked Read More »
You guys continue to raise money for your charities, and kudos to you for getting that done. The volunteers were absolutely FANTASTIC this year. It’s one thing to hand out Gatorade and snacks on a nice day, but to hang out in crappy weather to make sure riders had what they needed all day is … Kudos for raising money for your charity Read More »
Still love the ride, even after the third time! Had quit doing charity rides, but this one is exceptional. M.F.
I just wanted to let you know that I did the 75-mile TOLH yesterday and really enjoyed the route. I am currently training for the Furnace Creek 508 and the climb up Sharon Mt was perfect! I wanted to mention to you that somewhere along the way I lost my key fob to open my … Volunteers were extremely helpful Read More »
“This ride is always fun. You guys always do a great job providing services. The 30-mile was extra difficult this year with all the hills in Goshen and the road work in Torrington. Let’s do it again next month.” M.M.
This was my first year doing the Tour of Litchfield Hills, my husband and I finished the century, riding the last 50 miles or so in the rain. We thought this was a beautiful ride, good job with the markings and rest stops. Thanks for an excellent ride! This was our 6th century this year … Thanks for an excellent ride! Read More »
My first and definitely not last TOLH. Unbelievable ride. Nice job! J.C.
This is one of the local charity rides that we try to make each year since we started riding the Tour back in 2006. In fact, we like the route so much that we sometimes do it on our own again just for fun! The Tour was run well this year and certainly measured up … We’ve been riding The Tour since 2006 Read More »
