63 Huyck Road, Rensselaerville, NY 12147 (42.52N, 74.14W) elev. 1600'
Potter HOllow - 64 miles
64 miles and 6400' of climbing. Some gravel sections. This route is our longest and most challenging that we offer. You'll pass through historic hamlets and capture incredible vistas from the highest points around. Five aid station stops along the way.
Berne - 24 miles
24 miles and 2400' of climbing. This loop will bring you through the forests and fields of the neighboring town of Berne, passing by wooded waterfalls and hidden creeks before turning back to the main street of Rensselaerville for a final aid station. Two aid stations.
Rensselaerville - 10 miles
10 miles and 1000' of climbing. Haven't been training to much for the next big event? No Problem, this route is friendly to the casual cyclist, young cyclist, and we've even seen some kid trailers go by on this one. Enjoy the morning on a beautiful tour of the town and 1 aid station stop on main street Rensselaerville.
Kids' Ride - 3 miles
Technically this is a fifth option, but it's for kids, and it's free! Three miles, gradual hills and guided by one of our volunteers. Just show up and ride, no pre-reg necessary. This ride leaves the Carey Institute and stays on a quiet country road for 1.5 miles before returning the way it came. Great photo-op for mom and dad to get the young ones on their bikes.
