Thank you for your interest in the Snowball Express. This ride is part of the Adirondack Ultra Challenge.

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.  If a century is a bit much in January, or if it's a little too wintry, we've added the 52 mile SNOWFLAKE LOCAL. There is also an easy bailout at 30 miles, if you wanted to join us just to stretch your legs for a bit.

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, in case you've forgotten anything or need something.

We'll start promptly at 8 AM 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, and make sure to give yourself adequate time to arrive, register and get ready.  For travel directions and parking instructions, CLICK HERE.

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 will be given credit toward another one of our rides. Otherwise, entry fees are non-refundable and non-transferable.

Same day on-site registration will be available one hour before start time, and we accept cash, checks and credit/debit cards for all on-site purchases.
