The Deerfield Dirt-Road Randonnee was conceived in the 1990's as just a favorite
dirt-road loop in the hilltowns of Franklin County, Massachusetts. Since its
birth as an organized event in 2005, many have hailed D2R2 as the hardest, most
beautiful, most fun, most traffic-free, most unique, and overall best ride that
they have ever done. However, D2R2 will continue to maintain its original
character as just a bike ride –
The courses will use the narrowest, oldest, twistiest, quietest, and
most-scenic roads available.
A range of courses will provide access to novices as well as challenge the
world's strongest riders.
D2R2 will never offer prizes for anything other than gags, nor will finish
results ever be presented like it was a race.
Riders shall cover the course in a self-sufficient manner, without motorized
The organization will put as much effort into its food offerings as it does
the ride itself.
The event is a key fundraiser for the Franklin Land Trust's efforts to
preserve land in the region.

Who is the Franklin Land Trust (FLT)?
FLT is a 501(c)(3) devoted to the preservation of farm and forest land, and the
rural character of western Massachusetts. FLT helps farmers and other
landowners protect their land from unwanted development. To date, FLT has
helped to preserve over 25,000 acres of open space. The hills and valleys of
the region—with their farms, sugar bush, rambling old New England roads, and
small towns steeped in history—are a unique and precious resource which D2R2
riders will experience at every turn in the road.
Contributions to the Franklin Land Trust allow us to continue our efforts to
protect this invaluable resource and are tax deductible.
