Adirondacks near Saranac Lake - August 25, 2012 Century, 50 miler, 25 miler
Trust me, it's not like doing those murderous hills for the Lake Placid Ironman!!!!
The Century Ride starts at 8:00 a.m., 50-mile ride at 10:00, 25-mile ride at 11:00 and a free kid's ride at 1:00. This is a well-supported bike ride with feed stations, port-a-johns and a sag wagon. There will be prizes, a BBQ, tee shirts, music and homemade pies! Proceeds benefit youth programs of the Saranac Lake Kiwanis Club, including the annual Bike Rodeo that has distributed over 1,000 bike helmets to area youth.
This is a beautiful ride through Adirondack Park forest and farmland north of Saranac Lake. Great mountain views but no mountain climbing on the ride. Wide shoulders on the State Routes, otherwise quiet back roads. Along the route are Paul Smiths, Mecham Lake, Lake Clear, Gabriels and St. Regis Falls.
Registration fee is $40 for the Century Ride, $35 for the Half-Century and $30 for the 25-mile ride
