40-40-40 Ride for the River

Event Date: October 3, 2020 - 5:00am to 9:00am

The ride will celebrate 40 years of Sound Rivers working for clean water in Eastern NC! There will be 40, 24, and 14 mile route options, and we’ll plan to just get out and have some fun to celebrate the rivers.

Your $40 registration fee includes a one-year membership to Sound Rivers, helping to keep your rivers, lakes, and streams clean and beautiful.

We will maintain social distancing and will require masks whenever social distancing is not possible, to keep everyone safe. This ride will not have support stops. In the event of rain the event will be rescheduled.

Advance registration required. Riders under 18 years old must have a parent/guardian present. Waiver will be required to participate. Bring plenty of water, sunscreen, your wheels, and prepare for a fun time!
