Start time: 12 noon. Registration and shuttle from the Ski Bowl Park Pavilion in North Creek to Indian Lake. 1 p.m. departure from Indian Lake.
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.
Total elevation gain for 75 mile ride = 6,800 ft.
This ride is difficult, with long ascents. You are, after all, riding in the mountains! There are plenty of swimming spots along the way as well as at the finish. As you ride through hamlets, you’ll find places to buy food and/or use restrooms. Rider packets with route map provided at REGISTRATION.
