There is a cycling experience for all in the Adirondacks.
Event challenge, Scenic Roads, & Dirt Riding
The famous Black Fly Challenge held annually between Inlet and Indian Lake takes hundreds riders on a 40-mile trip though the Moose River Plains, and is one of the highlights of the riding season. Riding bikes on the pristine Moose River Plains Road is not limited to this event however. All throughout the warmer months riders can enjoy spinning their wheels on this well maintained wilderness road. This area is also home to a series of well signed dirt loops that take riders along closed pavement sections and dirt roads. For those looking for even more action, Oak Mountain has developed lift serviced downhill Mountain Bike terrain that plays host to major mountain bike races annually.
