Celebrating 42 years of cycling along the Wabash River Corridor, the Wabash River Ride commences on August 29th, 2020 from 7 am to 5 pm. Join cyclists of all levels for well-organized and supported routes of 33, 47, 66 or 100 miles through Tippecanoe, Fountain and Warren counties. Along the routes are scenes rarely thought of when considering North-Central Indiana's landscape: views along the Wabash River and Big Pine Creek, iconic landmarks such as the Fountain County Church, Rob Roy Covered Bridge and historic Williamsport Bridge, and rolling hills around the river valleys that make for a fun and challenging century.
New This Year: Gravel Option! Choose a 38 mile introductory route (35% gravel) or an 80 mile route (60% gravel). Both traverse the quiet, scenic views found along Warren County's county roads: Wabash Valley, Big Pine Creek, historic locations, and several NICHES Nature Preserves. Our gravel routes will cross with paved roads, including 2 Remote SAGs to fill your nutritional needs and visit with all cyclists.
These routes offer "faster" gravel conditions, but note that we recommend a minimum of 32 mm tire width to accommodate for conditions that are typical of the gravel scene: chunky gravel, huge potholes and mud. To maintain the organic spirit of the gravel scene, we will not offer SAG vehicle support on gravel routes; please be prepared to carry the necessary gear to fix anticipated mechanical issues. The gravel routes will NOT BE MARKED, although GPS files will be posted and route maps will be available at the registration tent.
Please note that in the face of truly insurmountable mechanical issues or health concerns, a number will be available for you to contact our Ride Director for SAG assistance.
