Cycle the St Lawrence
Come ride with us along the waters of the St. Lawrence Seaway. Our cycling event will start with a sunrise over St. Lawrence, and as you ride, continues with views of storybook castles and lighthouses from the river, with vineyards and Amish Farms on the shores of Black Lake. Your day will end with an after-party celebration at Bonnie Castle with music, delicious food, and a breathtaking river-view sunset.
This ride is in the heart of the 1,000 Islands, where the St. Lawrence River’s headwaters begin flowing from Lake Ontario; connecting The Great Lakes to the North Atlantic.
Three routes are available, with both recreational and competitive timed options for each:
The St. Lawrence Seaway Century, 100 Miles from Alexandria Bay looping through Ogdensburg, along Black Lake to Clayton, with the finish line at Bonnie Castle.
Le Fleuve Saint-Laurent Metric Century, 62 miles of river and lake views, with Bonnie Castle hosting the finish and after-party.
Lighthouses & Castles, 35 miles of the best views the 1,000 Islands have to offer, also ending at Bonnie Castle.
