Over half the 40-mile race goes through the wild and scenic Moose River Recreation Area with a
mix of bikes found nowhere else: mountain bikes, cyclocross bikes, tandems, even unicycles and
a triplet bike have completed the race.
The 2012 Black Fly Challenge (a.k.a. BFC) set records for most entries (506) and most finishers
(459) as well as new records for both womenâ€™s and menâ€™s fastest finishing times by Ruth Sherman, of Spencer, NY and Cory Burns, of Watertown, NY. The BFC has become an annual ritual for many cycling enthusiasts in the Eastern U.S. and
beyond with entries from as far away as Colorado. Some call it â€˜the Adirondacks Greatest Raceâ€™
and deservedly so.
