The 4th Annual Ride for the River will be held at the Hungry Trout Resort in Wilmington on Sunday, August 2nd. Ride for the River is a community event to celebrate the Ausable River and surrounding communities.
All proceeds support the Ausable River Association’s efforts to identify, conserve, and restore the natural and recreational resources of the Ausable River.
This year there are three road bike and two mountain bike routes. Road routes range from 10 to 50 miles. For those interested in exploring the mountain bike trails around Wilmington the “Poor Man’s Downhill” shuttle will be running specifically for this event. There will also be suggested routes through the Flume trail system for those looking for an easier mountain bike route.
Starting at noon there will be an after-party featuring live music from Back Porch Society, food from Hungry Trout, cold beverages from Great Adirondack Brewing Company, coffee from SubAlpine Coffee, chair massages from River Stone Wellness, and fly-casting demos with Patagonia Fly Fishing Ambassador Rachel Finn. There will also be a raffle for prizes, including a Hornbeck Canoe and half-day guided fly fishing trip with Hungry Trout Fly Shop owner Evan Bottcher. The after-party is open to the public.
Participants are encouraged to pre-register. You can find out more at www.ridefortheriver.org
