Event registration is now open for the Ausable River Association ‘s 6th Annual Ride for the River, which will take place on Sunday, July 16, 2017. The family-friendly event is a fully supported road cycling tour featuring three distance options, all showcasing the Ausable River watershed.
The Ausable River Association (AsRa) created Ride for the River in 2012 to celebrate the resilience of local communities following the flooding caused by Tropical Storm Irene.
In partnership with Cycle Adirondacks, the 2017 ride will feature opportunities for cyclists to learn about the impacts of road salt, invasive species and undersized culverts on Ausable streams and habitat.
Ride distances of 10, 30 and 60 miles are being marked with route signage where cyclists can get a first-hand guided look at the conservation work of AsRA. The event will start and finish at the Hungry Trout Resort in Wilmington.
All proceeds from the event support AsRA’s mission to restore damaged portions of the river. For complete event information and to save $15 on the registration fee visit their website at www.ridefortheriver.com. Registration prices will increase on Thursday, June 29th.
