This annual ride takes place every year at 12:00 noon on New Year’s Day. The ride was started in 1996, and now draws over 50 riders. The ride goes regardless of the weather, and is appropriate for riders of all abilities.

The ride happens on the Lawrence River Trails, and riders can do as much of the trail as they like, then meet afterwards for burgers and refreshments at Johnny’s Tavern.

The New Year’s Day Ride is sponsored by the Lawrence Mountain Bike Club.
