Ride for the River returns | News, Sports, Jobs
WILMINGTON – The 10th annual Ride for the River, benefiting the Ausable River Association, will be held in person on Sunday July 18th.
Proceeds from this road bike tour support the association’s work to protect clean waters, healthy streams, biodiversity-rich habitats, and scenic beauty of the AuSable River watershed.
Hosted by Bike Adirondacks, registration for the tour includes fully supported 30 and 45 mile cycling routes, event t-shirt, post-race barbecue, and live music. In addition to the in-person ride, a virtual ride option is also available, allowing riders to explore routes or create their own ride. The virtual ride is separate from the day of the in-person event.
The two cycle paths will be signposted on the day of the event, and virtual registrants are invited to use them as they wish the following week. Riders who cannot make it to Wilmington can ride in support of AsRA on a preferred route near them.
This event took place completely virtual in 2020. For this event, cyclists from nine states and 42 different communities registered.
BikeADK will also host the Tailgater, a late afternoon group ride starting at 3 p.m. on Saturday, July 17 from the Hungry Trout Resort on State Route 86 in Wilmington. The bonus event gives riders an extra day of riding in the watershed and ends with appetizers and drinks overlooking the west arm of the AuSable River from the Hungry Trout Patio.
