Road bike event scheduled to rill along the St. Lawrence Seaway Aug. 27

ALEXANDRIA BAY, NY —  The Adirondack Foothills Cycling Club, in collaboration with the 1,000 Islands International Tourism Council and the St. Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce, is hosting the first-ever Cycle the St. Lawrence bike event.

This cycling event starts at Bonnie Castle in Alexandria Bay, and continues with views of castles and lighthouses from the river, with vineyards and Amish Farms on the shores of Black Lake. An after-party celebration at Bonnie Castle concludes the ride with live music, delicious food, and a breathtaking river-view sunset.

More than 100 cyclists are expected to bike along one of three different routes along the St. Lawrence River Seaway. Three routes are available, with both recreational and competitive timed options for each:

  1. The St. Lawrence Seaway Century, 100 Miles from Alexandria Bay looping through Ogdensburg, along Black Lake to Clayton, with the finish line at Bonnie Castle.

  2. Le Fleuve Saint-Laurent Metric Century, 62 miles of river and lake views, with Bonnie Castle hosting the finish and after-party.

  3. Lighthouses & Castles, 35 miles of the best views the 1,000 Islands have to offer, also ending at Bonnie Castle.

This ride is fully supported by support wagons and aid stations, that will include the Fredrick Remington Museum in Ogdensburg, Bella Brook Winery in Hammond, and Coyote Moon Vineyards in Clayton.

This ride is presented by the Adirondack Foothills Cycling Club. Their mission is to promote enjoyment, training, education, and advocacy for the sport of cycling to people of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds in Northern New York State.
