AbEx Challenge: Empire State Ride

Join The Ability Experience for a fun weekend ride from New York City to Albany, NY over the weekend of October 6-9, 2023!

You have the opportunity to cycle the 3-day, approximately 200-mile route from New York City to Albany, NY on the newly minted Empire State Trail! You will start in the heart of lower Manhattan, make your way through New York City and up through the Hudson River valley.

Unlike the alumni rides of the past, you won’t need your air mattress and sleeping bag. That’s right, you’ll be able to rest your head on a comfy bed (maybe a couch) each night instead of a gym floor.

This promises to be a beautiful Fall ride on a combination of paved greenways and road cycling. This is one ride you won’t want to miss!

Friday, Oct 6 – Travel to New York City
