Mt Washington Auto Road

I was looking at their website and apparently there is a fee for the riding this. It is planned as one of our day rides according to the itinerary that Northwoods Maine typed up for us that I emailed out to everyone on the registration list.

Just wanted to pass this along for those who are budgeting their trip. $16 per bike/rider and $8 for passenger

Thanks for the info TracyB. A lot like Mt Evans road here in Colorado and I'm sure the views are just as worth it!

Must have bumped it up, think I payed 20 dolla last August for me and the bride.

Big gift shop across the road from the entrance filled with Mt Washington stuff. Usually has some "Ride to the Sky" motorcylce themed shirts left over from Laconia. Different shirt design every year for the Rally.

Does that mean she's afraid of heights ... or your riding skills? If it's a fairly clear day the views are well worth the heart palpitations!

There will be a 2-3 other ride options in addition to Mt. Washington. I'll be doing one of those simply because I've done the "Road to the Clouds" several times ... as recently as 2 years ago with one of our members here - Springer Todd.

I like the way the one sounds. Should be fun! Heart palpitations got my attention.

Enjoy the Ride!
