Competitive cyclists, casual bicycle riders and those looking for a mouth-watering Mother’s Day brunch are invited to the annual Amberations Bike Ride, Open House and Mother’s Day Brunch set for Sunday, May 13, in Marietta, N.Y. Entertainment will include local musicians and children’s activities.
Bike ride registration will begin at 8 a.m. at the Otisco Lake Community Center, 2223 Amber Road, adjacent to Amberations’ barn. Cyclists will depart at 9 a.m. Brunch is complimentary for registered cyclists. Prizes will be awarded for a variety of categories including but not limited to fastest, most colorful and last place. The fastest riders complete the 17-mile course in under an hour. Participant fee for the scenic ride around Otisco Lake is $30 per person and $60 per family with all proceeds going to support Amberations.
This annual event, sponsored by The Bikery of Baldwinsville and supported by Wegmans, attracts a group of strong cyclists who never fail to provide an exciting finish to the course, which wraps Otisco Lake. Non-competitive riders enjoy a tour of the area, a popular cycling route because of the views of the lake and the quiet country roads.
