Thank you for your interest in the Montreal Double Double.

We are currently seeking interested riders for a potential ride on August 5th-7th or September 16th-18th. This ride will need a minimum of 6-8 participants to go. If you are interested, please contact us as soon as possible with your date preference. Once we hit our minimum for either or both dates, we'll contact riders and start accepting entry fees and coordinating the logistics. If we do not hit our minimum, we will not host the ride this year, but will try again next year.


COVID NOTE: Only fully vaccinated riders may currently travel to Canada and participate on this ride, and proof of vaccination status will be required before you can register. In addition, all riders must wear a mask at all times while in any support vehicle and in any public space in Canada. Additional requirements may also be imposed as the situation warrants.


The weekend will consist of a double century from Schuylerville, NY to Montreal on Friday, a leisurely rest day in Montreal on Saturday, then another double century back to Schuylerville on Sunday.

Your entry fee will include at least the following: two rest stops on each riding day with snacks and drinks, limited emergency sag support, gear shuttle, overnight accommodations for two nights in Montreal and breakfast on Saturday.

We provide roadside support as necessary, but we can’t be everywhere at once, especially if the group spreads out. Please note that there will be several long stretches without services and riders are expected to be properly prepared and self sufficient on the road and in between rest stops. For a list of items to bring, see our MONTREAL DOUBLE DOUBLE specific CHECKLIST.

FRIDAY, RIDE DAY: Schuylerville, NY to Montreal: ~ 200 miles

SATURDAY, REST DAY: No official group activities planned – enjoy the day in Montreal!

SUNDAY, RIDE DAY: Montreal to Schuylerville, NY: ~ 200 miles

Final details, cue sheets, itineraries and other information will be sent to all registered riders with their final confirmation package, usually about five days before the start of the event.


The terrain will be varied, with three distinct sections.

The 30 miles between Schuylerville and Lake George will be rolling, with a couple of long gradual hills. The next 100 miles to Plattsburgh will be typical Adirondack terrain: short steep hills with a few long climbs thrown in for good measure. The final 70 miles into Montreal will be a stark contrast to the ride so far. It will be flat. Pancake flat. Kansas flat. Unbelievably flat. No hills except for a couple of highway overpasses and bridges.

Overall, there's about 5,500 feet of climbing going north, and about 6,800 feet of climbing going south, with most of it coming between Lake George and Plattsburgh.

Please note that some of the roads in Quebec are a bit on the rough side and you may want to make adjustments to your equipment.


The weather will most likely be hot and humid, with a chance of an afternoon thunderstorm and early morning fog. The wind is usually from the south or the west in the summer but can come from any direction and please note that there is not a lot of shade on this route.

If you are denied entry into Canada or the U.S. for any reason, we can not take any responsibility whatsoever. We'll try to help resolve any situations to the best of our abilities, but our main duties lie with getting the group to the finish of each day's ride.


Each rider will be allowed one medium-sized soft bag for us to transport to and from Montreal. Please note that this bag may not be available except at the start and finish of each riding day.

Riders will also be provided with a small bag or tote to load with personal items, that will be accessibly on each riding day. Please note that any item that does not fit in the provided container will not be taken in the support vehicle.

All bags must have an ID tag on them with your name, address and phone number.


A limited number of non riding/non volunteer spaces may be available. Please contact us for more information.


We can use a couple of working volunteers to help us support this ride.  Please note that volunteers may be required to use their own vehicle to carry gear and supplies.

Being a working volunteer is a great way for a non rider or family member to join a cyclist on this ride.  All expenses will be paid, including food, gas and hotel.  The volunteer will have Saturday to themselves, and it's possible you may be able to ride part of each riding day, but that's not guaranteed, since your primary responsibility will be to help support the group.

If you're interested in helping out, or have any other questions, feel free to CONTACT US.
