Hosted at Paradox Brewery in North Hudson, the Handlebarley Gravel Weekend features two incredible fall days of gravel riding in the southern Adirondacks. The best part is you can sign up to ride just Saturday, only Sunday, or make it a full weekend.

Dates: September 14-15
Location: North Hudson
Mileage: 20-44 miles
Participation Cap: 150 riders

Regardless of the number of days you choose to ride, you're guaranteed some awesome dirt, equally amazing views and a whole lot of fun. Saturday's ride is a 20-mile afternoon social cruise to stunning Elk Lake Lodge followed by post-ride drinks at the brewery. The main event is Sunday where we venture east of the brewery to Ironville for a stop at Hunter Way Farm and the Penfield Homestead Museum before heading back to the brewery for a pizza and salad feast complete with live music. In between, you'll experience some of the finest paved and gravel backroads anywhere in the region.  

Best of all, the event benefits the Penfield Homestead Museum in historic Ironville, known as the "Birthplace of Electrical Age." The museum is not just a homestead, but a group of 19th-century buildings and extensive grounds. During your visit, you can check out the home built by Allen Penfield, farm yard barns, a church, and a parsonage built in the 1840s.

Registration is open! Sign up today!
