About the Ride

Cancer in isolation is unthinkable, with family and friends it is bearable, and with a community, you believe it is something you can beat. The Granite State Quest was founded in 2003 to provide individuals with the opportunity to join that community.

Starting and finishing at The Timberland Company in Stratham, New Hampshire, riders have the opportunity to bicycle 50 or 100 miles throughout southern New Hampshire. The route takes the riders along the beautiful NH coast, inland up and down the rolling hills of the countryside and past the scenic Great Bay. Many riders return year after year to reconnect with new friends and riding partners – all committed to raising funds to help eliminate the terrible sting of cancer.

The day concludes with a post ride barbeque and celebration. Riders, volunteers and family members all gather to share stories of the day’s ride. While there may be a few aches and pains, the riders find great comfort in knowing that they have become members of the community that is needed to bridge the gap between the hope and the reality of finding a cure for cancer.

The Granite State Quest last year raised more than $100,000 to support the fight against pediatric cancer

Our Mission

The mission of the Granite State Quest is to raise funds to conquer childhood cancer. Partnering with MassGeneral Hospital for Children, the funds raised by The Granite State Quest will be specifically directed towards pediatric cancer research developed and initiated by the Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Unit of the MassGeneral Hospital for Children. The Mass General team has world-renowned experience in treating leukemia, lymphomas and brain tumors.

The Granite State Quest is a one-day one hundred mile or fifty-mile bicycle ride throughout southern New Hampshire. Our commitment is to make the Granite State Quest an annual event, thus providing the opportunity for individuals and families to directly participate in the quest to conquer cancer.

Volunteer for the Granite State Quest

You don’t have to ride to make a difference. The success of the Granite State Quest depends heavily on our volunteers.

Volunteers play a key role in creating a memorable and successful event, from getting the riders off to a smooth start to cheering them on along the route to providing food and beverage to celebrating as group when the last rider pulls in.

The GSQ’s goal is to secure at least 1 volunteer for every 2 riders. The GSQ has numerous opportunities for you to participate, including registration, food and beverage service, mechanical support, medical support, route crew and after event celebration.
