Your adventure, your choice
At the 45th Wabash River Ride, you will experience the varied landscape of North-Central Indiana on either paved or gravel roads - your choice!
Our routes will take you in and out of the Wabash River and Big Pine Creek watersheds, iconic landmarks such as the Fountain County Church, Rob Roy Covered Bridge and historic Williamsport Bridge, and rolling hills around the farmlands and the river valleys that make for a fun and challenging ride.
Join cyclists of all levels for well-organized and supported routes from 16 to 101 miles through Tippecanoe, Fountain and Warren counties.
Whether you are seeking pavement or gravel roads, the WRR has something for everyone!
The Wabash River Ride is hosting a new paved distance for 2023, the 16 mile Granville Loop! This distance was designed for all ages and abilities with options to shorten the route if desired.
A little before mile 4, you will encounter a fully stocked SAG on the right just before Granville Bridge, signage will be present. From here you have the option to return to the Fort for a total of 8 miles. The perfect distance for those who wish to squeeze in a ride before attending one of many local events in the Greater Lafayette area on the same day.
Those looking for additional distance can continue along for the full 16 miles with a second opportunity to refuel at mile 12. You will pass by historic Granville cemetery riding through the ghost town of Granville, Indiana, founded in 1834. You will see the marker along the route with details of the once bustling shipping center along the Wabash and Erie Canal.
Our gravel options are designed for maximum flexibility. Choose to start and finish on gravel routes from 36, 62, or 100 miles, and if you need respite from the dusty roads, each route intersects with the paved routes at various locations leading you back to the Fort. We recommend a minimum of 32mm tire width to accommodate a variety of road conditions. We will not offer vehicle SAG support on gravel roads, and be prepared to carry water, nutrition, and gear between fully stocked SAG locations. Gravel routes will not be marked. RidewithGPS app is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Routes will be posted no later than August.
