About This Activity

HOW FAR WILL YOU RIDE FOR A BEER? 

The Point to Pint Ride is for cyclists who enjoy great beer, phenomenal scenery, the company of fellow riders and the opportunity to push themselves on a 100-mile, 50-mile, or 25-mile challenging course. 

Full pint or 100-mile riders start their day with a pre-ride breakfast at Empire Brewing Company in the heart of Armory Square in Syracuse, NY. 

Half Pint or 50-mile riders head out after lunch, arriving back at Empire in time to enjoy the post ride party with our Full Pint participants. 

New this year - The Sampler! A 25-mile "taste" of our local roadways. Your day begins at 2:30pm and brings you back in time for the post ride party at Empire!

*COME READY TO RIDE: We do NOT have space available at Empire Brewing for gear storage BEFORE, DURING, OR AFTER the ride. Please plan on keeping all personal belonging secured in your vehicle while you are on course.

*Please remember, this is a RIDE not a RACE and the COURSE IS NOT CLOSED TO TRAFFIC. You must obey all NYS Traffic Laws, to include: riding only two abreast, riding single file when a car is passing, stopping at ALL traffic signs/signals and no headphones please.

*The course, while stunningly beautiful, is also complex with many turns. We have endeavored to mark every single decision point (i.e. whenever you have a choice to go right, left or straight) with WHITE ARROWS and P2P markings. Please bring a cue sheet and map with you!

*SAG support on course: Limited. There is a mechanic following all rides. If you run into trouble, we’re there to help…when we can get you! Riders should bring along flat repair supplies as you would on any self-supported ride. Also please call 315-263-7575 if you need help at any point on the course.

*AID Stations: We will have fully stocked aid stations at Mile 25, Mile 50, and Mile 75 on the 100-mile route, at the Mile 25 mark on the Half Pint route, and at the Mile 12.5 mark on the The Sampler route. (There is an option to stop at Mile 30 on the Half Pint route at Chittenango Falls Park). There will be water, Gatorade, energy bars, fruit, cookies, PB&J, and all kinds of junk food available.

*PARKING: There are several parking options in Armory Square very close to Empire Brewing Company which is located at 120 Walton St. Please refer to this website for detailed parking information: http://www.armorysq.org/about/ParkingBrochure.pdf

*POST RIDE PARTY: There is no secure location for bicycles during the post ride party. Please plan on securing your bicycle inside or to your personal vehicle BEFORE coming to the party. There are bathrooms where you can change, but no showers available at Empire.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT OF OUR LOCAL CHALLENGED ATHLETES!
