Full Pint (100 Miler) - Dry Dock 100 - Full Pint (100 Miler)
About This Activity
Welcome to the 3rd annual Dry Dock 100!
The Dry Dock 100 is a 25, 50 or 100 mile bike ride sponsored by the Adirondack Garda Cycling Club in support of the Tour De Force.
The 25 mile route will take each rider from the Valcour Brewing Company along the shores of historic Lake Champlain by circling Cumberland Head, then heading to Point Au Roche and returning to the Valcour Brewing Company.
The 50 and 100 mile routes will take each rider along the shores of historic Lake Champlain and into the Adirondack Park. At the 12 mile point and after 2 challenging hill climbs, you will be rewarded with a picturesque view of Ausable Chasm. We encourage all of you to stop, and take a few moments to enjoy what Mother Nature has created over the last 500 million years. From here the journey continues through part of the Adirondack Park, and back to the City of Plattsburgh where lunch will be served at the Valcour Brewing Company. After a short lunch the 100 mile ride continues north to the Village of Rouses Point along the U.S./Canadian Border. The last leg of the journey will bring each rider back along the historic shores of Lake Champlain, and finally finishing at the Valcour Brewing Company with a party!
Each rider in the Dry Dock 100 will receive a gift and a bag filled with “Goodies.” The 50 and 100 mile riders will receive lunch and finishing party with a buffet at the Valcour Brewing Company. The 25 mile riders will also receive the finishing party buffet, but can purchase lunch at a small fee.
The Dock Dock 100 is a fully supported ride with rest stop and SAG support.
For 2016 the Dry Dock 100 has added a few personal challenges for each rider to include a hill climb and several sprints.
On the 17th there will be an additional free unsupported ride (Probably a metric centruy) for those riders wishing to take in more of the beautiful scenery. Currently the plan is to travel around the northern part of Lake Champlain to Vermont and return to New York via a ferry.
All of the money raised for the Dry Dock 100 will go directly to the Tour De Force, which is a charity that donates to the families of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty. Please visit www.tourdeforceny.com
