Deerfield Dirt Road Randonnée

The Deerfield Dirt Road Randonnée (D2R2) 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 ride 11 years ago, 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. Register now.
