Hey everybody. I'm here in the Watertown, NY / Fort Drum, NY area. I've seen some people cycling around here, but no one I know.
I was just wondering who else is up in this area, maybe would like to go on a ride sometime. I just commute to and from work right now, but I would like to do some more cycling.
I served in drum 2002-2006 not sure how many people cycle there, but plenty of places to go on your bike, nothing like Drum winters.

What are some suggestions? I just commute from housing area to work.... Just 3 mi one way on Riva Ridge...
Did you bike in the winter?
I was not into biking when I served, but those North Country roads are low traffic so you can go all over there, my favorite place was Sacketts Harbor cause it had best food.

Yeah, I'm leaving here soon, so I won't see the decrease in traffic on the roads after the I-81/Drum interconnect is done. They're building an offshoot from the interstate directly from North Gate to I-81... Should reduce traffic on those roads... I've been here since 2005, and the traffic has been getting heavier every year.

my father in law lives up there... I really enjoy riding in the area, plenty of quiet back roads and much flatter than Syracuse :D
