Thanks for your interest in Adirondack Ultra Cycling. This page offers general guidelines for our events. For detailed information on a specific event, please go to the specific page.

Our general guidelines:

  • All of our events are held rain or shine, unless otherwise noted, and all entries are non refundable and non transferable. If there is a chance of snow, ice or other dangerous conditions, a ride may be postponed. If that occurs and a pre-registered rider can't make the new date, they will be given credit toward another ride.
  • Same day registration is available for most of our events. Please refer to each event's page for details.
  • We accept cash, check and credit/debit cards for on-site registration and purchases.
  • Rides start promptly. Please arrive at least a half hour early to register, check in and get ready.
  • Drafting is allowed in all of our events.
  • Pets are not allowed at any of our events, including those brought by riders, crews, friends, family, etc. Anyone arriving with a pet will be asked to leave and the associated rider may be disqualified or given a time penalty.
  • Motorized bicycles of any kind, including all types of e-bikes, are prohibited from our events. Riders arriving with a motorized bicycle will not be permitted to participate in the event and no refund will be issued.
  • Helmets must be worn at all times.
  • Lights and reflective gear are required from dusk to dawn.
  • Traffic laws, signals and devices must be obeyed at all times.
  • All turns, stops, slow downs, etc., must be signaled.
  • Ride defensively and watch for traffic.
  • Riders must get completely off the road when stopped.
  • Ride no more then 2 abreast, and only when traffic permits. Single up when traffic approaches from the rear.
  • Keep as far to the right as safety permits, and if there is a good shoulder, please use it.
  • Appropriate lights and reflective gear must be used between dusk and dawn: 600 lumen minimum steady white light for the front, attached to the bicycle; two 50 lumen minimum red lights for the rear (one set to flashing, one set to steady), both attached to the bicycle; reflective sash, vest or jacket; and reflective ankle bands. Additional lighting and reflective gear is also highly recommended.
  • Most of our routes are unmarked. Be prepared to follow a cue sheet or GPS file.
  • Most of our events are unsupported on the road, but snacks and pocket food will be provided at the start and finish. Be prepared to be self sufficient and/or use convenience stores to resupply.
  • Sanctioned events will have other rules and regulations specific to their governing organization.
  • Riders under suspension by any sports governing body are prohibited from entering our events.
