“This is a lovely ride along the Hoosic River, through beautiful farmland – mostly on lightly traveled roads,” said Lisa Carey Moore. “Once you do it once, you will want to do it again! ” The ride benefits the Hoosic River Watershed Association, a tri-state, Williamstown, MA. based river advocacy group. Riders have a choice of; 100-mile, 75-mile, 50-mile, 30-mile or seven-mile loops, crossing covered bridges, passing historic sites-as well as, on the longest run, circling the Tomhannock Reservoir in New York State.
