Farmington to Middlebury Early Bird Coffee Run

September 26 @ 7:00 am - 11:30 am


Registration will open at 7pm on Tuesday, Sept 21st (form will be available above at that time). Please leave the Total Guests count at 1 on the RSVP form, this represents the number of cars you are bringing. Thanks.

This run will start a bit early to beat the traffic. Meet up between 7:00 – 7:30 am, driver’s meeting at 7:30 am with departure at 7:45 am.

This ride will start in the beautiful town of Farmington/Unionville depending on which GPS unit you use to find the McDonald’s. There is also a Dunkin’ Donuts right next door and you will pass a Starbucks for those of you with strong allegiances to one or the other.

We will start with a nice scenic drive along the Farmington River as it winds for the first 18 miles or so. We will drive through some small old New England towns with historic red brick buildings. Nice sweepers with little elevation changes. We’ll make up for that once we hit Route 263 – very twisty and tight leading us into North Canaan. From there we’ll head mostly south down picturesque and curvy Route 7 making our way South, before heading west into Middlebury.

Starting point: McDonald’s, 1799 Farmington Ave, Unionville, CT
Ending point:  Dunkin’ Donuts, 489 Middlebury Rd, Middlebury, CT
Total Distance: 110 miles

Easy access to route 84 at the end of the run for returning East or West.
