The Adirondack Ultra Challenge is a fall/winter century series that provides an opportunity for riders to complete at least one century every month and to get in some good off season riding. For more information, click here.

The Saratoga 12/24 is held every July in Saratoga Springs, and uses a rolling
40-mile course in northeastern Saratoga County and along the Hudson River. It consists of several events, including: the Saratoga
24-Hour Challenge, the Hudson River Ramble 12-Hour Challenge, the Nighthawk 12 Nighttime 12-Hour Challenge, the Triple Lap 120-mile Challenge, the One Lap 40-Mile Fun Ride and the Midnight Madness 40-Mile Fun Ride. For more information, click
The Montreal Double Double is
a unique event held every August, that combines ultra marathon racing and touring. The concept is to ride the 200 miles from Schuylerville up to Montreal, have
a rest day in Montreal, then ride back to Schuylerville on the third
day. It's a neat event, with full support and first class accommodations. For more information, click here.
The Adirondack 540 RAAM Qualifier is an entire weekend
of ultra cycling fun that will test every level of rider. It's held on a beautiful
and challenging 136-mile course that travels along Lake Champlain and
through the High Peaks region of the Adirondack Park Preserve. Rolling hills, long
climbs and breath taking descents are a staple of this course. We have events that cover one, two, three
and four laps of this grueling course. For a complete schedule and more
information, click here.
The Haunted Hundred is a scary overnight century that's usually held the weekend before Halloween and is part of the Adirondack Ultra Challenge. We start in Saratoga Springs and use a rolling loop through Saratoga, Warren and Washington Counties that takes us to frightening places like Bloody Pond, Spook Hallow Road and Prospect Hill Cemetery, and past haunted houses, burial grounds, cemeteries, murder sites, zombie lands, battlefields and war monuments. This ride was featured in the October, 2009 issue of Bicycling Magazine as the "Cool Ride of the Month." For all of the details, and more
