The Late Summer Season RIDE...
(place holder text - we can say a little or a lot or nothing!) kicked off on Sunday, July 31 with the Adirondack Mountain Club’s 11th annual Ididaride! Adirondack Bike Tour. Last year over 450 riders completed the 75-mile loop ride that starts at the historic North Creek Ski Bowl town park. It winds through the hills and valleys of the central Adirondacks, passing through Wells, Speculator, and Indian Lake before circling back to North Creek. The paved route offers great scenery, with wide paved shoulders most of the way.
As you ride, you see spectacular forests, lakes, and rivers and enjoy four well-stocked rest stops, mechanical support, and a SAG wagon. There’s also a 20-mile route that starts with a bus shuttle to Indian Lake, then a return through the hills and along the Hudson River. Finishers on both routes enjoy a party at the finish line with lunch, drinks, and live music to celebrate their achievement.
