SPECIAL RUSA NOTE: Due to changes in RUSA policy for 2020, only current members as of the time a brevet starts, are allowed to ride a RUSA/ACP sanctioned brevet. To accommodate non-members who do not wish to join RUSA at this time, but still want to ride, we will hold a non-member ride on the same day and course as the official RUSA brevet, but it will start thirty minutes after the start of the official RUSA brevet. Please note that participants on the non-member ride will not be able to use the ride for RUSA/ACP awards, credit and/or qualifications, but all mileage will count toward the ADIRONDACK ULTRA CUP, regardless as to your RUSA membership status. We apologize for any inconvenience and/or confusion this may cause, and if you have any questions, please CONTACT US.


Celebrate International Women's Day with a 100 KM POPULAIRE!

This ride is part of the SARATOGA BREVET SERIES and the ADIRONDACK ULTRA CUP, and is sanctioned by AUDAX CLUB PARISIEN and RANDONNEURS USA. We will follow their RULES & REGULATIONS, as well as OUR OWN RULES.

This ride is being held to celebrate INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY and we will waive the entry for all female riders.

Our route will be a loop course that takes us from Schuylerville around Saratoga Lake, north to Saratoga Springs and Glens Falls, then back to the start along the Hudson River. We're also offering a 68 KM SHORTCUT that heads back to the start from the Tang and bypasses the northern part of the route for riders that just want to join us for a little bit.

We'll start at the ADIRONDACK ULTRA CYCLING BIKE SHOP, ride to and around Saratoga Lake, up to Saratoga Springs, with a control at the TANG TEACHING MUSEUM, then continue north to Glens Falls with another control at the HYDE COLLECTION, and finally a return to the shop. If the weather cooperates and the FEEDER CANAL TRAIL is clear of snow and ice, we'll use it.  If not, we'll use parallel roads.

The Tang is a teaching museum on the campus of Skidmore College and was built in part with a major gift by Frances Young Tang's family in memory of the 1961 graduate shortly after she passed away in 1992. The museum focuses on education and regularly holds classes and activities for the Skidmore student body, as well as for visiting students. The museum also regularly exhibits works by women and will have several exhibits by women in March, when we visit.

The Hyde Collection was endowed when Charlotte Pruyn Hyde established a trust in 1952 that dedicated her home and her extensive art collection to the community. After the death of her husband in 1934, Mrs. Hyde spent the next 30 years tripling the size of their already well respected art collection into the foundation for the museum, which permanently opened to the general public in 1963, shortly after Mrs. Hyde passed away. Their collection includes works by women artists such as: Dorothy Dehner, Virginia Berresford, Marilyn Bridges, Louisa Chase, Julie Doucet, Mary Frank and Wilhelmina Weber Furlong. Several of these artists were active during the women's suffrage movement and were pioneers in an art community that was dominated by men.

The time limit for this ride will be on the generous side (~ 7:30 H), so there should be a little time to browse either or both museums. If not, come the day before or stay an extra day to visit them, and I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

This ride will be co-led by Bianchi Dama Director Heather Mason and will be offered free of charge to all female riders. There will be limited on road support and emergency sag, as well as food/snacks/drinks at the beginning and end of the ride.

We'll start promptly from the ADIRONDACK ULTRA CYCLING BIKE SHOP, located at: 160 Broad Street, SCHUYLERVILLE, NY. When arriving and departing, please be courteous, especially if it is early in the morning or late at night, as this is a mixed residential/business neighborhood. Also make sure to give yourself adequate time to arrive, check in, register and get ready, and please do not park in another business' lot or block a driveway or the street itself, otherwise your vehicle may be towed. We do not have a parking lot, but there is ample street parking in front of the shop and on adjacent streets. For travel directions and parking instructions, CLICK HERE.

Same day, on-site registration will be available and begins one hour before start time. You may also pre-register for any of our events at the shop at any time during our regular business hours or on-line at BIKE REG.

Be sure to dress according to the conditions, and if you think you may finish after dark, you'll also need to use lights and must adhere to our minimum lighting requirements: 600 lumen minimum steady white light in the front, attached to the bicycle; two 50 lumen minimum red lights in the rear (one set to flashing, one set to steady), both attached to the bicycle; a reflective sash, vest or jacket; and reflective ankle bands or footwear. Additional lighting and reflective gear is also highly recommended and please note that helmet mounted lights are not acceptable as your primary light, but may be used as supplemental lights. Lights are also highly recommended for daytime use as well, both front and rear, set to flashing.

This ride will be unsupported on the road, unless stated otherwise in this description, but we'll have food at the start and finish, along with gels, drinks and bars to take along with us. We'll also provide emergency sag, if needed, but generally as a last resort, so please make sure you are properly trained and equipped for this ride. To help you prepare, we've created a rider checklist. To view it, CLICK HERE. The shop will also be open before and after the ride, in case anyone needs anything or forgot something. In addition, if you need your bike serviced for this ride, CONTACT US to set up an appointment. We can usually accommodate riders on short notice, but a week's time frame is best, especially if you need major work preformed.

This ride will be held rain or shine, but if there is 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 credit toward another ride. Otherwise, entry fees are non refundable and non transferable.


DUE TO INSURANCE REGULATIONS, PLEASE NOTE THAT MOTORIZED BICYCLES OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, E-BIKES AND PEDAL ASSIST BICYCLES, AND PETS, ARE PROHIBITED FROM OUR EVENTS. RIDERS ARRIVING WITH A MOTORIZED BICYCLE OR PET WILL NOT BE PERMITTED TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS EVENT AND NO REFUND WILL BE ISSUED.


For more information, or if you have any questions, feel free to CONTACT US.
