    Pat Stratton

    Tomorrow I get up at 0-dark 30 and head up to the great north of Saranac NY - riding the Pat Stratton Memorial Century, I doubt anyone here will be there but if so - giave a shout.

    Here is a breif description
    "The ride benefits Kiwanis Youth Programs. It's a great ride: scenic, not hilly, with a Century, Half Century, 25 mile, and a Free Kid's Ride. Active Law Enforcement and Military also ride free. It is a very well-supported ride (feed stations, porta-johns, sag wagons). There is a BBQ with homemade pies, and there are many prizes! All riders receive a high quality sport tee shirt! The ride starts at Mt. Pisgah Lodge on Saturday, August 28th"

    Something in the description of the ride just got my attention so I had to sign up and being a member of this forum - can you spot it? I left a little hint...

    Enjoy the day!!

    I spent two years up in Saranac Lake from '69 thru '71. I kinda remember a couple of outdoor concerts at Mt. Pisgah. If I had my way, I'ld be living there now!

    So tell me....when did they flatten out all the hills?

    Great ride today - a quick century. I was able to complete the ride in about 5 hrs and 30 min of saddle time. During the first third of the ride the average speed was over 20 mph but the group I was riding with blew through the first rest stop at mile 30 and I did not want to push my luck, so I took in some fuel and took off with another group but they did not keep a good pace line.

    Here were the riders lined up at the start - it was a fairly small group:


    And the pre-ride instructions



    And of course the home made pies at the end - YUM!



    This was a great ride through some pretty country, lots of lakes, streams, ponds and panoramic mountain views.
