Mohawk Hudson Cycle Club Century7-1008:00 AMAltamont Fairgrounds, Altamont,NYChet Lasell
Get your ride on! Begin your fall riding in earnest by participating in a fun recreational bicycle ride at Mohawk Hudson Cycling Club’s annual Century Weekend event September 8 and 9, 2018. Join us to experience some of the best road riding available in beautiful upstate New York and see the back roads, lakes, and mountain views of Albany County on 100, 62.5, 50, 25, 12 and 7-mile routes.

Leaving for the first time from the Altamont Fairgrounds in Altamont, N.Y., riders can find the perfect route to experience such beautiful roads as the Basic Creek Reservoir causeway, tour peaceful farmlands and forests in the Fox Creek Valley, and enjoy bucolic vistas from the slopes of the Heldebergs.
2018-09-09Grand Fondo New Jersey18,42,62,75,10712:00 AMMorristown,NJ
Gran Fondo NJ

Gran Fondo NJ offers a choice of route lengths and timed hill segments that wind their way through some of New Jersey’s best cycling roads. Starting and ending in historic Morristown, NJ this combination of bike touring and timed climbs attracts a wide range of cyclists from the casual weekend rider to the well-trained endurance athlete.
Gran Fondo NJ is a Ride not a Race

Gran Fondo NJ provides plenty of challenges to its participants without the added pressure, stress and inherent dangers of a bike race. We do not provide Start/Finish timing. The competitive aspect of the event is limited to only the timed climbs on the four longer routes. Cyclists can feed their competitive needs while fighting gravity on these climbs, and take it easy on the sections of route and our rest stops in between.
More than a bike ride

Gran Fondo NJ is a full weekend of festivals, expos and other activities offering entertainment for the entire family culminating in the ride and post-ride celebrations. Along with raffles, great food, local shopping and our Kid’s Fondo there’s something for every member of the family. There is also an optional fundraising component to the event – it has been used by riders supporting local and national charities and has generated over $1,000,000 in donations since its inception.

On Sunday, September 9, 2018 cyclists from Otsego County and the surrounding region will take part in, “Ride On” for Complete Streets. The event is a multi-distance bicycle ride being planned in the Richfield Springs area. The ride is for cyclists of all ages and skill levels. Road cyclists will embark on their choice of 62, 32, 21, 13, or a 3-mile ride. These routes have been designed to appeal to everyone from the beginner rider to the avid, seasoned cyclist. The 21 mile ride is a “gravel grinder”. All rides will start and finish at the Richfield Springs Central School.

A Complete Streets Policy should be part of every community’s plan to reduce its carbon footprint, promote healthy lifestyles, and therefore support its citizens in living longer, happier, and healthier lives. As seen on the Smart Growth America website, and stated so clearly, “A Complete Streets approach integrates people and place in the planning, design, construction, operation, and maintenance of our transportation networks. This helps to ensure streets are safe for people of all ages and abilities, balance the needs of different modes, and support local land uses, economies, cultures, and natural environments.”

2018-10-07Velocity: Columbia's Ride to End Cancer62.5 , 45, 25, 109:00 AMPomona,NYJustin Geringer
Velocity is so much more than a cycling event. Velocity is hope accelerated. It’s the idea that we’re more than the sum of our parts. That when we all come together, we can make something big happen.

By riding 10, 25, 45, or 62.5 miles and raising essential funds to support HICCC, you’re fueling the doctors, researchers, and patients in their quest to end cancer. As our professionally designed and fully supported route merges together from four Start Areas, we’ll ride together as one to our finish line at Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC). We’re riding to the end of cancer at Columbia. We’re proving the power of Velocity.

Velocity’s unique model symbolizes the idea that when we come together, we gain momentum. And that momentum makes big things happen, even the end of cancer. As Velocity riders approach New York City and CUMC, they merge with others at several dedicated Start Areas. Together they gain momentum and become one unstoppable force as they cross the majestic George Washington Bridge on their way to the triumph of the finish line.

Each Velocity Start Area (Silver at 62.5, Yellow at 45, Green at 25 or Blue at 10 miles) sends you off on your scenic and powerful journey. Each Start Area also serves as a rest stop for riders already on the route.

After crossing the finish line, we'll celebrate at the Velocity Finish Line Festival.
