NORTHEAST DELTA DENTAL MOUNT WASHINGTON ROAD RACE

9:00 am

The 55th annual “Run to the Clouds” will take place on June 20, 2015.

Newton's Revenge

Race Date: July 11, 2015

This Hillclimb will be contested on exactly the same course as the historic Mt. Washington Auto Road Bicycle Hillclimb – the toughest Hillclimb in the world. This addition is in response to the overwhelming popularity of the MWARBH and this year will benefit the Mt. Washington Valley Bicycling Club. In addition to a percentage of the proceeds being donated to this organization, junior racers will also have the opportunity to enter by raising money directly for the non-profit.

The intent of this second Hillclimb is to satisfy the demand for bicycle racing on this hill and to raise money, but it will only be conducted in a way that will not hinder the Tin Mountain Conservation Center’s ability to raise funds in the future through the annual Mt Washington Auto Road Bicycle Hillclimb held in August. This climb will mirror the original and only be held if the MWARBH fills completely. Newton’s Revenge is limited to 600 racers.

Covered Bridge Dance

Location: Covered Bridge Jackson New Hampshire
Date: Saturday, August 1, 2015
Time: 7:00pm

Dance the night away under the stars and the Jackson Covered Bridge on Saturday August 01, 2015 starting at 7 PM. Featuring... Jon Sarty and the White Mountain Boys. As with all talented musicians they will have their own following as well as everyone who has been to the Covered Bridge Dance in the past, therefore we recommend you come early and pick your spot. There are a number of tables and chairs provided but they go fast. Bring your own chairs, blankets, friends, family and, of course Dancing Shoes. The Jackson Community comes together for this Old Fashioned block party once a year and you are invited. 


It isn't often you see any of New Hampshire's Covered Bridges closed to vehicles... but on this very special night the Jackson Covered Bridge will be closed from 5 PM until midnight for this great event. You know an event is worth the trip when it stops traffic... signs will be posted and our very own Jackson Police crew will be on hand to redirect traffic as needed. If you are visiting a local business located in the loop merely continue north on route 16 and take the first right after the Covered Bridge to get into Jackson Village. Please note... all Jackson Village businesses normally opened at night will most certainly remain opened during this event. So please... mark your calendars and join us for a night of Dancing under the Stars and the Jackson Covered Bridge. 

Parking for this event will be marked. The entrance fee to the Covered Bridge Dance is FREE thanks to our major sponsors: Whitney's Inn at Jackson, Inn at Jackson, Flossie's General Store, Homer's Appliance. Donations are always welcome. 

Be sure to come hungry and enjoy a wonderfully delicious menu prepared by Sweeney Sensations!
