A Celebration of the Ausable River
Thank you for helping make the 9th Annual Ride for the River a big success
Ride for the River is a fun, family-friendly event to celebrate the Ausable River and the communities surrounding it. All proceeds directly support the work of the Ausable River Association (AsRA) to protect the clean waters, healthy streams, biodiverse habitats, and scenic beauty of the Ausable River watershed. The event was first held in 2012 to celebrate the resilience of local communities following the devastating flooding during Tropical Storm Irene. The funds raised from the event were used to support AsRA's stream restoration projects. The 2020 Ride continued to celebrate our local communities and river while raising funds to restore damaged portions of the river and address the growing concern over road salt, particularly around Mirror Lake in Lake Placid, NY.
This year's "ride on your own time" format respected the need for safety during the COVID-19 pandemic. Even with this new style of event, over 100 amazing people from 42 different cities and 9 states participated in Ride for the River. Stay tuned for information on the 10th annual ride on July 17-18, 2021.
