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.
