This day ride features three ride distances within the pristine Ausable River watershed, which the Ausable River Association is dedicated to protecting. Get ready for beautiful river views as you pedal along the valley below stunning Whiteface Mountain in Wilmington, NY.

In addition to incredible cycling, Ride for the River features interactive educational opportunities led by the Ausable River Association, a fabulous ride ending BBQ complete with live music and local brew, plus the now world famous gear raffle with prizes from event sponsors like Patagonia.

And if you're local or visiting the Tri-Lakes area on Saturday afternoon, you won't want to miss the "Tailgater", an optional guided ride followed by a riverside social hour at the Hungry Trout Resort.

Event Description

Ride for the River was created by Ausable River Association in 2012 to celebrate the resilience of local communities following the devastating flooding caused by Tropical Storm Irene. In partnership with Cycle Adirondacks, the ride features interactive route stops allowing cyclists to learn about the impacts of road salt, invasive species and undersized culverts on Ausable streams and habitat.

Proceeds from the event support the Ausable River Association’s efforts to protect the clean waters, natural hydrology, diverse ecology, and scenic beauty of the Ausable. Learn more about the important work of Ausable River Association at AusableRiver.org.
