We'll start promptly from our event director's home, located at: 7 PEARL STREET in SCHUYLERVILLE, NY. When arriving and departing, please be courteous, especially if it is early in the morning or late at night, as this is residential neighborhood. Also make sure to give yourself adequate time to arrive, check in, register and get ready, and please do not block a driveway or the street itself, otherwise your vehicle may be towed. For travel directions and parking instructions, CLICK HERE.

This event is held rain or shine and all entries are non-refundable, non-transferable and no credit will be given to entrants that do not attend. Registration is limited to 12 riders and same day, on-site registration will not be available. Registration closes on July 31st or when we reach our limit of 12 riders. If you would like to sign up for this ride, you may do so online at BIKE REG, at our SHOP during regular business hours or by using our ENTRY FORM.

Your entry fee includes at least the following: two rest stops on each riding day with snacks and drinks, limited emergency sag support, gear shuttle, overnight accommodations for two nights in the Montreal area and a buffet breakfast on Saturday. All rooms are double occupancy, except for those that choose the premium single occupancy option.

We will be staying at the Holiday Inn in LONGUEUIL, QC, which is just across the St. Lawrence River from Montreal. There is easy access to Montreal via ferries, trains, cabs, bikes, etc., and LONGUEUIL is a vibrant town on its own, with a lively downtown and several good RESTAURANTS and nightclubs.

This event crosses the international border between the United States and Canada. All participants must have the necessary documentation for entry into Canada and re-entry into the U.S. Please prepare for this carefully and make sure you have everything you need. If you are denied entry into Canada or the U.S. for any reason, we can not take any responsibility whatsoever. We'll try to help resolve any situations to the best of our abilities, but our main duty lies with getting the group to the finish of each day's ride.

All participants must be over 18, unless accompanied by their parent or guardian.

Final details, itineraries and other information will be sent to all registered riders with their final confirmation package, usually 2-3 days before the start of the event.

Riders are expected to be properly prepared and self sufficient on the road. We will provide support to the best of our ability, but we can’t be everywhere at once, especially if the group spreads out. The support van tries to pass each rider at least once in between the suggested rest stops, which are every 25-30 miles, but there may not be services in between rest stops, so please be prepared. For a checklist of items to bring and other information, CLICK HERE.

A limited number of spots for non-riding guests of riders are available (transportation to and from Montreal is not available or included) and one non-riding guest may stay with a rider in a single occupancy room at no extra charge. For other options, pricing and availabilty, please CONTACT US.

Pets are not allowed at this event in any capacity. That includes at the rest stops, at hotels, at meetings, on the route, in a car, in a trailer, in a child seat or on a leash. If any rider, family, friend, support crew member, volunteer or anyone else associated with this event arrives with a pet, they and their associated rider will be asked to leave immediately, forfeiting their spot and their entry fee.

Drafting is allowed and group riding is encouraged. Aero bars and disc wheels are allowed.

All types of human powered bikes are allowed, but please note that some types of bikes (i.e. tandems, recumbents, HPVs...) may not fit in our support vehicles, limiting our ability to sag riders.

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.

Lights are required and riders should expect 2-4 hours of night riding on each riding day. To view our lighting requirements, and other suggested items to bring, CLICK HERE.

Personal support crews are allowed, but discouraged. If a rider uses a support crew, they may only assist their rider at designated checkpoints and must make their own overnight arraignments in Montreal, or register with us as a non-rider, if space is available.

Exact itineraries and final details will be sent to all registered riders with their final confirmation package, usually 3-5 days before the ride.

The terrain will be varied, with three distinct sections.

The 30 miles between Schuylerville and Lake George will be rolling, with a couple of long gradual hills. The next 100 miles to Plattsburgh will be typical Adirondack terrain: short steep hills with a few long climbs thrown in for good measure. Then, the final 70 miles into Montreal will be a stark contrast to the ride so far. It will be flat. Pancake flat. Kansas flat. Unbelievably flat. No hills except for a couple of highway overpasses and bridges.

Overall, there's about 5,500 feet of climbing going north, and about 6,800 feet of climbing going south, with most of it coming between Lake George and Plattsburgh.

Please note that some of the roads in Quebec are a bit on the rough side and you may want to make adjustments to your equipment.

The weather will most likely be hot and humid, with a chance of an afternoon thunderstorm and early morning fog. The wind is usually from the south or the west in the summer but can come from any direction and please note that there is not a lot of shade on this route.

Each rider will be allowed one medium-sized soft bag for us to transport to and from Montreal. This bag will be available if we use one support vehicle. If we use two support vehicles, it will only be available at the start and finish of each riding day.

When we use two support vehicles, riders will be provided with a small bag or tote to load with personal items for use during the ride. Please note that any item that does not fit in the provided container will not be taken in the support vehicle.

All bags must have an ID tag on them with your name, address and phone number.

We usually need a couple of working volunteers to help us support this ride. Please note that volunteers may be required to use their own vehicle to carry gear and supplies, and support the ride.

Being a working volunteer is a great way for a non rider or family member to join a cyclist on this ride.  All expenses will be paid, including food, gas and hotel. The volunteer will have Saturday to themselves, and it's possible you may be able to ride part of each riding day, but that's not guaranteed, since your primary responsibility will be to help support the group.

If you're interested in helping out, or have any other questions, feel free to CONTACT US.
