The Great Batchawana Adventure Ride will introduce you to the backcountry of the Algoma region. The 70km ride is for advanced riders. The route features challenging climbs and descents, a number of water crossings, mud and sand. If you’ve signed up for Crank the Shield, this is your best option to experience the terrain of that race’s Day 1. This ride will be lead by local riders who have spent years combing the area for riding opportunities and assembled a route to test you and allow you to experience the beautiful backcountry the area has to offer. The day will start with coffee and fritters (included) and that will be followed by some great riding and a few surprises. Dinner will be available for purchase at the end of the ride at the Voyageur Lodge. Proceeds from this ride will support local trail development activities in Sault Ste. Marie.
