Event details and schedule
Date and Time of VBC Century Ride: July 9th, 2022 - 8:00am - Due to the COVID-19 - Please be respectful of others, help us keep this event going and lets still have some fun! The VBC Century ride is a 50 and 100+ mile bike ride sponsored by the Adirondack Garda Cycling Club (www.adkgarda.org), with a 75 mile option (Three Quarter Pint) as well. All of the monies raised will go directly to the Tour De Force, which is a charity that supports the families of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty. For more information on the Tour De Force please visit www.tourdeforceny.com The full and half pint routes will take each rider along the shores of historic Lake Champlain and into the Adirondack Park. This year we will start by heading north to the village of Rouses Point, nesteled in the most northeast corner of NY. Your return trip will be along the shores of beautiful Lake Champlain to complete the frist 50 miles at the Valcour Brewing Co. After a short lunch the riders will continue south on Rt9 to the Village of Ausable Forks. There will be fully supported rest stops with plenty of drinks and snacks, as well as support vehicles traveling the route. In order to keep this event affordable (right around the $100 mark) we have opted to not supply a dinner this year, but we WILL BE KEEPING the custom jersey. As ususal there will be more than enough FREE BEER for the riders. On the 10th of July there will be an additional free unsupported metric century ride, The 2nd Annual Frank Scofiled Memorial Ride, for those riders wishing to take in more of the beautiful scenery. Currently the plan is to travel around the northern part of Lake Champlain to Vermont and return to New York via a ferry. In the past the VBC Ride picked up the ferry cost, due to the large amount of riders who opt for the second day ride (Last year we had over 40 riders) we are unable to continue this. The ferry cost is $5 - $7. Over the last 8 years the VBC Century Ride has grown in popularity, and we look forward to seeing friends we have made and making new friends! In order to be able to provide each rider with a quality riding experience the field has been limited to 150 riders this year. Make sure you do not miss out and register early.
