The Prouty™ began in 1982 when four Cancer Center nurses, inspired by the courage of their patient, Audrey Prouty, committed to cycling 100 miles through the White Mountains of New Hampshire.

The annual 2-day Prouty Ultimate is an unparalleled ride experience: two days of scenic and fully supported riding through the beautiful New England countryside, complimentary lodging, meals and camaraderie. This is the Prouty at its best!

Prouty Ultimate takes place on July 12 & 13 in Hanover, NH.
