The Whiteface Road is closed to cyclists during their operating season. Plus, it's a little outside my home ride-radius. That would be the best climb in the Adirondacks otherwise. If I can't ride it regularly, than screw those state-funded Olympic-freaks for hogging the road - I won't bother with it at all.

(I pay too many taxes, that mountain is run by a public-authority $$$)

Cross-country ski up in the winter for free and no-hassle fun.

Didn't know that, what a shame. I wonder how much money they are losing by not letting cyclists up, (head charge like cars.) I wonder if the tight road has anything to do with it?

I would pay a fee to ride it if they allowed, but all the tourist cars going up and down would inevitably lead to car v. cyclist disaster. Uphill vehicular speed would be no issue, except for the unexpected rubbernecking of the views. Downhill, a bike could easily double the speed of what a car can do. The bit from the beginning of the Toll Rd down to Wilmington is insanely fast if you let it rip. That, you can do anytime.

Hey Giro
Not yet, at least not from me personally.
I do know a couple of guys that went out from Mooers to Lyon Mountain and back, and said it was great, nice roads.
Anxious to go, just have too many things to do right now.
