Thank you for your interest in our On the Canals Ride Series. This series will be held from June thru November and is presented free of charge by Adirondack Ultra Cycling, the NYS Canal Corporation and the NYS Power Authority.

We have a diverse calendar of events, and our schedule is below. If you have any questions or need more information, feel free to CONTACT US.

FRIDAY EVENING SHORT BIKE & BOAT CRUISES

This series will be held twice a month between June and October and we'll bike and boat between the shop and Champlain Canal Locks 5 and 6, partnering with MOHAWK MAIDEN CRUISES and their renowned CALDWELL BELLE PADDLE BOAT.

The ride will be an easy 8 miles and the cruise will be a relaxing 45 minutes. We will ride at a casual pace and keep the group together. The route will be on mixed surfaces, but all roads and paths will be hard packed and most road and hybrid type bikes will not have any problems. For those who need a bike, we have a very limited quantity of Cinelli gravel bikes for rent for an extra fee. For information on pricing and availability, please CONTACT US as soon as possible.

SATURDAY MORNING FIX A FLAT & SIMPLE BIKE MAINTENANCE

This series will be held on alternating Saturdays between June and November in a classroom type presentation on how to fix a flat and other simple bike maintenance techniques. We will offer two Levels, with Level II progressing a little further then Level I, and participants are encouraged to take both levels for maximum education.  Participants are also encouraged to return to retake sessions as needed to maximize your learning experience or refresh your skills. Participants may bring their own bike, use one of our demo bikes, or just observe. Each session will last 1½ - 2 hours, and our final session on Nov. 5th will focus on the best way to store your bike for the winter.

SATURDAY MORNING INTRODUCTION TO CYCLING

This series will be held on alternating Saturdays between June and October and will be a combination of riding and classroom sections, with each day having a little of both. Level I will start off by presenting the rules of the road, basic riding etiquette and a bicycle checklist. After this presentation we'll go on a short ride to practice what we learned. Each session will last 1½ - 2 hours.

Level II will expand on Level I and will also start off with a classroom presentation, this time focusing on group riding and more advanced riding etiquette, before going out for a short ride to practice. These sessions will also last 1½ - 2 hours.

Our final session on Oct. 22nd will focus on riding in the cooler weather of the fall & winter. We'll go over proper clothing and equipment, and effective dressing techniques.  This session will mostly be in a classroom environment, but if time permits, we'll go for a ride, and hopefully, it will be a little chilly out.
