The Gap is worth a stop as you can see evidence of the earliest known residence of the area, the Fremont and Anasazi Indians. The Gap is a mountain that was split in two by a volcanic intrusion. The sandstone that was left bare by the split is covered with petroglyphs and contains multiple calendars that track both the moon and sun. The Gap is worth a trip and is a bonus as you pedal out your century.
The course will be a rolling figure 8 loop through Saratoga County and will take us along the Hudson River and to Saratoga Lake, Wilton, Gansevoort and Moreau. New for this year, we’re adding a 50 mile option, and there is also an easy bailout at 30 miles, just in case it’s a little too wintery.
Be sure to dress according to the conditions, and if you think you’ll take more then 9 hours, you’ll also need to bring your lights. This ride will be unsupported on the road, but we’ll have food at the start, middle and finish, along with gels, drinks and bars to take along with us. To help you prepare, we’ve created a rider checklist. To view it, click here. We’ll also have a small selection of lights, batteries, tires, tubes and other merchandise for sale at the start, middle and finish.
We’ll start from our event director’s home at: 7 Pearl Street • Schuylerville, NY. This is a residential neighborhood, so please be courteous when arriving and departing. For travel directions and parking instructions, click here.
Same day registration will be available beginning one hour before the start, and we’re pleased to announce that we now accept credit cards for on-site registration and purchases.
This ride will be held rain or shine, but if there’s a chance of snow, ice or other dangerous conditions, it will be postponed and rescheduled. If that occurs, and a pre-registered rider can’t make the new date, they’ll be given a full refund or credit toward another ride, whichever they prefer. Otherwise, entry fees are non refundable and non transferable.
