Thank you for your interest in the Adirondack Ultra Fondo. This is a new ride and is part of the Adirondack Ultra Challenge and all mileage will count toward the ADIRONDACK ULTRA CUP.As a new ride, we're limiting the field to 25 solo riders and 10 relay teams for the first year to work out any bugs, so if you want to enter, don't delay! Placings will be determined by overall time.
Relay teams will consist of up to four riders, with one rider completing a designated section of the course. Only one rider is permitted on the road at a time, but riders may ride more than one section. Each section is between 65-70 miles:
This is a very challenging ride that will take us along the northern sections of the Hudson River, almost to its source, and into the heart of the Adirondacks. Along the way, we'll ride past some of the most famous lakes in the Adirondacks and over numerous hills and mountains, including: Lake Luzerne (once the home of the national cycling championships), Indian Lake, Lake Durant, Blue Mountain Lake, Long Lake, Tupper Lake, Saranac Lake, Lake Placid (host of the 1932 and 1980 Olympics) and Lake George, to name a few.
There will be 13,423 feet of climbing, so please be prepared. Lights will be required and most riders should expect 4-10 hours of night riding and up to 13 hours if you take the full time limit. There will be limited van/sag support for this ride and there are services available on the route, with bike shops located in Lake Placid.
We'll have bagels, snacks and drinks at the start, as well as pocket food and gels, drinks and bars to take along with us, and in the support van. We'll also have a small selection of lights, batteries, tires, tubes and other merchandise for sale, in case anyone forgot something or needs anything. Riders may also use their own support crew, which may provide aid via pedestrian hand-offs anywhere on the course, traffic permitting.
To help you prepare, we've created a rider checklist. To view it, click here.
