Thank you for your interest in the Last Century. This ride is part of the Adirondack Ultra Challenge and all mileage will count toward the ADIRONDACK ULTRA CUP.

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 last year, we’ve 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 8 hours, you’ll also need to bring your lights. This ride will be unsupported on the road, but we’ll have snacks, pocket food and drinks 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. We’ll also have a small selection of lights, batteries, tires, tubes and other merchandise for sale at the start, middle and finish, in case you’ve forgotten anything.

The ride will be unsupported on the road, but we’ll return to the start/finish halfway through to take a break, warm up and restock.

Mission to Mission is a non-competitive event set in the heart of the Missions National Historic Park. All routes are easily rideable, level to gently rolling and include paved roads maintained by the city, county and state.
The “Family Tour” touches four Spanish Colonial Missions along the San Antonio River and provides a family opportunity for historic tours or just enjoying the restored missions’ grounds. The Family Tour features small rider groups along dedicated bike lanes & hike/bike paths, and as a result can be adjusted to fit interests and skills.
The extended tours offer a self paced historic route that crosses the original Missions Trails, El Camino Real, rural neighborhoods, and Braunig & Calaveras Lakes. In addition, mobile SAG and staffed break points provide support for all three tours.
