THE RIDE

Farmers make hay while the sun is shining, but we ride bikes any chance we get, especially on gravel roads like these through some of the most beautiful countryside out there...

Graphic separation element

As we traverse these rollers we are often surrounded by vast fields being worked by modern machinery much like the way our bodies are working these hills. We admire the precision by which the machinery creates neat bales of hay, and are inspired by the bale kicker's tenacity in loading each bale onto the wagon. The bale kicker reminds us of traversing these vast rollers... Just as our legs reach a point of exhaustion, we kick that completed roller into the wagon and prepare for the next.

 

THE COURSES

There are two courses to choose from: a 25 mile and a 40 mile option starting and finishing at the S&S Farm Brewery.  Both courses wind through rural Rensselaer and Columbia County on primarily gravel roads with some pavement and provide spectacular views of the countryside.
