Rensselaerville Cycling Festival

Event Navigation

Hop on that banana seat, put a baseball card in your spokes, smooth out those streamers and join the crowd as it rolls down from the Carey Institute for Global Good behind the Rensselaerville Fire Department fire truck, ventures onto some of the charming rural roads, parades up Main Street and then makes its way to the finish. Anyone and everyone is welcome on this ride, and participation comes with a ticket to the festival barbecue and an entry to the raffle drawings. (FYI, there is a hill. This is Rensselaerville after all. It’s okay to walk up it. You have all day if you want.)
