Are you a biker? And by biker I don’t mean a rider of motorcycles, I mean bicycles! If so, you may be interested in the 2013 Adirondack Bike Tour: ididaride! This summer bike enthusiasts can compete in a scenic Adirondack ride on August 11, 2013.
About the Ride
There are two loops that competitors can choose from depending on the length of their desired ride. The longer loop is 75 miles, and the shorter loop is less than one-third that length at 20 miles. Find directions to the starting point here.
The ride is all on road, wide shoulders for much of the route. You’ll ride through some of the most beautiful scenery – cutting right through the central Adirondack Mountains, most of which is public Forest Preserve land. We’ll cycle through the towns and hamlets of Bakers Mills, Wells, Speculator, Sabael, Indian Lake, North River, and back to North Creek. Your ride will take you alongside Mason Lake, Lewey Lake and Indian Lake. A long descent begins in the hamlet of Indian Lake and meets the Hudson River in the hamlet of North River with a relatively easy ride into North Creek. The entire distance along Route 30 and Route 28 to North Creek is designed for the bike enthusiast, with designated bike routes marked on the wide road shoulders. (ADK.org)
