Pinkham Notch, NH— Saturday, June 30th brought clear skies and warm weather to the summit of Mount Washington—perfect conditions for one of the Granite State’s premier ATV events. The third-annual New Hampshire ATV Day, more formally known as the Gerry Pomerleau Memorial Ride, was held on the legendary Mt. Washington Auto Road, with 1,200 ATVs making their journey to the Northeast’s highest peak at 6,288 feet.
Tickets for the event had been sold-out for months, as this is the only day of the year that ATVs are allowed on the Auto Road. In fact, the road was closed to all other private vehicle traffic in order to ensure the safest experience possible. Guided van tours were available to the non-ATV public, and offered a unique experience for guests to be on the mountain alongside New England’s most avid ATV enthusiasts.
A special “thank you” goes out all participants for their courteous and safe driving on the Auto Road, making this event a fun and memorable day for all. Likewise, volunteers from the NH ATV Club helped support the Auto Road staff in organizing and running the event, and their efforts were greatly appreciated. The late Gerry Pomerleau, a former club director and founder of the event, would have been proud to see his club in action, and the joy that this event brought to his fellow ATV fans.
