This year's ididaride is now virtual! You have until August 28th to register on their website.
A day of riding through the quaint towns and hamlets of the central Adirondack Mountains!
With this year's ididaride being virtual, you have from June 1st - September 7th to complete your race!
This year the 15th Annual ididaride! moves a little deeper into the sights and sounds of our beautiful Adirondack countryside. Not far from the start, riders will be able to experience all the benefits of biking through the villages of Pottersville, Adirondack, Brant Lake, Olmstedville, and of course, North Creek. Total mileage has decreased to a 55 mile loop, but there are still plenty of challenging hills!
The 23-mile Gravel Grinder off-road course is for those who prefer to be in the woods and and close to nature. The ride starts from the Gore Mt. Ski Bowl in North Creek. Some highlights of the course include biking along North Creek, passing tiny Riparius and its historic train depot, biking along rural sections of the mighty Hudson River as it flows through the Village of North Creek to Riparius, and biking on the suspended boardwalk trail that crosses under Rt. 28, bringing riders back to the Ski Bowl. Mountain bikes or hybrid bikes are recommended.
The elevation change for the full course is 6,918-feet ~ half up - half down. Which do you think is more fun?
ididaride! is a fully supported ride with four rest stops, with water and snacks. SAG (Support and Gear) wagon and mobile mechanical support provided. Course maps are online.
55-mile loop start time is 9:00am. 23-mile loop start time is 10:00am. Registration is available online, and the deadline is July 24th at 12:00pm.
After the ride check-in at the finish line and pick up your event tee and swag bag. Enjoy food, drink, and *new for 2020* live entertainment by The Other Guys and other bands at our aprés ride party at the Ski Bowl pavilion in North Creek. Riders receive tickets in their swag bags for catered BBQ and one complimentary beer, poured on-site by Common Roots Brewery!
Do the ride and be proud to shout Hey ididaride!
