SACKETS HARBOR, N.Y. – North Country Against Cancer will host its 18th Annual SpokerRide on Saturday, July 25, 2019. The SpokerRide is an annual charity event benefiting the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life and the Volunteer Transportation Center, Inc. The ride starts and ends in Sackets Harbor, N.Y. The courses are generally flat, with some hills. There are two courses: a 30-mile (beginner/intermediate) course, and a 50-mile (advanced) course. A novice course is also available for those riders that want to participate but not race. Race lengths are estimated —depending on road conditions on the day of the race.
All riders are eligible for the grand prize (drawing to be held at the award ceremony). There will also be awards for the intermediate and advanced courses for fastest in each age/sex category. Additionally, there are numerous door prizes and giveaways during the awards ceremony.
Racers registered by Wednesday, July 1, will receive a free T-shirt. T-shirts are not included in late and race day registrations. Registration is $40 per person in advance of $50 the day of the event.
Lunch will be provided for all riders after the ride. There will be food available for purchase by non-participants as well, and there are many area restaurants open on race day.

Each year, North Country Against Cancer works tirelessly to bring the North Country a premier race for local riders and raises the maximum number of dollars to support local cancer survivors.
