Go all in to end cancer • July 14-15, 2023


Prouty Ultimate Route Update (July 12, 2023):

Our Prouty Team has been working hard to identify and secure a new route for you, our Ultimate riders, for this Friday. The heavy rain impacted more than six spots on our originally planned route, and our hearts go out to the community members impacted by the floods.

We are excited to share our new Ultimate route with you - click here to check it out! The route is 77 miles, and we appreciate your understanding that we are not able to execute a full 100 mile route given the circumstances we are in. We will have four SAG stops along the fully-supported route, plus a water stop at the top of Mt. Cube.

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 14 & 15 in Hanover, NH.
