The Black Fly Challenge is one of the foremost sporting events and the biggest bike racing event in the Adirondack Park. First introduced as a mountain bike race, it has now evolved to event which includes a wide cyclocross range of different types of bikes. You will find cyclists in the event riding single-speed, three-set bikes, unicycles; and even tandem bike teams. More than half the 40-mile track passes through the Moose River Recreation Area and presents bikers with traction challenges and varying elevations.
Biking expert riders finish under 2 hours with the other casual riders taking up to 5 hours. The latest record has been set by the Men’s Champion, Cory Burns, by completing the race in a little more than 1 hour and 47 minutes. The Women’s Champion also set a new women’s record of 2 hours and 1 minute.
