No fundraising required





Howdy boys and girls, Glen here, your humble servant since 1997. 


Just once a year we get together in the town where I live in the country -- Narrowsburg, NY.  This is a small ride; we don’t really advertise it.  Just a chance to relax in the country, paddle down the river, see the stars at night, do some amazing cycling, and hang out.


Come for one, two, three, or all four days -- your choice.  (This late word from our Evil Marketing Department -- there are apparently major discounts for coming more than one day. Why do I ever listen to those guys?) 


There’s a beautiful campground that will be our HQ for the event. There are affordable hotels nearby. Having camping gear? Great. Need camping gear? We can provide.


Transportation for your bike and you available from NYC, or get here on your own.


We’ve brought back The Night Ride too!  It’s 17 easy miles... ALL downhill! (Last year’s night ride was spectacular beyond all anything ever. Honest.)


You can see a detailed schedule of events here, but this is the short version:

  1. AND.. the spectacular Night RIde. It's 17-miles, ALL downhill, along the Lackawaxen River, under a sky full of stars. Perfect for beginners or experts.  NOTE: We won't start the night ride until, say, 9 p.m., so even if have to stay at work later than you'd wish, you can still make it in time!

The site of the original Woodstock music festival




It’s a very short pedal from the Woodstock site to the local distillery for a taste.  (If you want to buy spirits we can carry them for you while you pedal).





After the distillery we’ll go on a lovely 20-mile ride along back country roads and then zooming along the Delaware River before we end at to an ice cream stand.



For those who are camping out along the river, this is where we’ll be staying (above).  There are indoor toilets and hot showers available.  If you prefer there are several choices for local lodging.




        (We are confident that you will find this real photo of local lodging

           hilarious, offensive, or idiotic.  Good!)
