Wabash River Ride - August 29th, 2020 - Now with GRAVEL options

Celebrating 42 years of cycling along the Wabash River Corridor, the Wabash River Ride takes place 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 quite different from North-Central Indiana's typical landscape of corn and soybeans: views of the Wabash River and Big Pine Creek, iconic landmarks such as the Fountain County Church, historic Rob Roy Covered Bridge, and Shawnee (Williamsport) Bridge, and rolling hills around the river valleys that make for a fun and challenging century. Multiple support vehicles will be patrolling the routes, so you can ride with confidence.

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.

To fuel your ride, we’ll continue our renowned tradition of home baked cookies and other sweet treats from our club members. Of course, we'll also have a variety of fresh fruit and salty snacks. For your post-ride meal, we'll have local food trucks at Fort Ouiatenon. Your registration will get you a ticket for food from the food truck of your choice.

If you register before August 16th you will be eligible for the FREE bicycle give-away courtesy of Hodson's Bay Company with the name of the winner posted on the day of the ride!

Early Bird Registration ends April 6th - $25
Early Registration April 7th through July 6th - $30

Don't forget: Online registration and chance to win a bike ends August 16th!

The WRCC is excited to partner once again with the Wabash River Enhancement Corporation, WREC, to enhance appreciation of the natural beauty of the Wabash River Corridor and surrounding environment. The WREC is a non-profit 501c3, community-based organization in Lafayette, Indiana. They work extensively within the community to improve the Wabash River Corridor and watersheds by planning and implementing projects that increase environmental management, research and public accessibility to the waterways and land. The Wabash River Ride and the Wabash River Enhancement Corporation is a natural partnership, as daily rides with the WRCC and the routes of the Wabash River Ride wind throughout the corridors and watersheds. The WRCC hopes that our partnership will bring awareness to the vital work that the WREC has done and will continue to do for our river.

If you go to the registration link on the event site, you’ll find that it is cancelled for this year.
