Ride for the River and Support the Ausable River Association

For over a decade, Ride for the River has been a do-not-miss celebration of the stunning Ausable River watershed. Featuring two breathtaking routes with distances of 30 or 45-miles, the July 14 fundraiser event directly supports the important work of the nonprofit Ausable River Association to protect the clean waters, healthy streams, biodiverse habitats, and scenic beauty of the Ausable River watershed. Highlights include fabulous catering by West Shore BBQ, beery by Great Adirondack Brewing, live music by Tyler Dezago, and even swimming at the Town Beach after your ride. Not able to make the event? Participate with a virtual ride!

Ride for the River will also host a 20-mile "tailgater" group ride on July 13 for those who'd like to come into town a day or two early to make it a weekend, with post-ride pizza and drinks overlooking the Ausable River.
