September 13th. - "Higley 100" Metric Century Ride and Half-Century Ride.  Friends of Higley Flow State Park, with the support of Graymont Materials, Inc. and many volunteers, will be hosting the 10th Higley Hundred bicycle ride.  Starting and ending at the park, riders follow a route of 100 kilometers (62 miles), or 50 km (31 miles).  The 100 km loop includes a climb to the town of Parishville and over White Hill, but will be run the opposite direction from last year. The shorter ride features a section going over Windmill Hill in Colton.  The routes are mainly along secondary roads, but include brief sections on Rt. 56 and/or Rt.72.
Participation has been growing each year in this event that offers a year-end challenge for North Country cyclists.  Each rider will be provided with a course map and cue sheet noting all turns.  This is not a race, and riders usually find a group  to share the ride with  – which enhances the pleasures of the ride. 

Riders will pass through several towns where refreshments may be obtained. A support vehicle will be available for riders with technical problems.

At the end, all participants join in a barbecue at the beach in Higley Flow State Park.  Registration forms are available at local bike shops, and online at the website of the Friends of Higley Flow State Park (www.higleyfriends.org). Pre-registrations must be received by Sept. 12. A commemorative t-shirt will be included for registrations received by Sept 6.
