The 15th Annual ididaride! Adirondack bike tour takes place on Sunday, July 26th in scenic North Creek, NY
This year ADK's scenic ididaride! highway route of many years moves a little deeper into the sights and sounds of our beautiful Adirondack countryside. Not far from the start, riders will be able to experience all the benefits of biking the roads less traveled through the villages of Pottersville, Adirondack, Brant Lake, Olmstedville, and of course, North Creek.
Ididaride's 2020 route mostly sheds the painted shoulders of NYS highways and utilizes sections of roads along Schroon Lake and Brant Lake that are described by cyclists as being among the most beautiful ever experienced! Total mileage has decreased to 55 miles, but there are still plenty of challenging hills!
The 23-mile Gravel Grinder will be available for the third year in a row. This has proven to be an enjoyable, yet challenging ride and has delighted riders the past two years. The mixed-surface 23-mile off-road route (short loop) is ideal for off-road riders, fat-tire bikes, gravel-grinders, and overland riders. Ideal for those ididaride! cyclists who prefer being in the woods and a little closer to nature. The ride starts from the Gore Mt. Ski Bowl in North Creek. Some highlights of the 23-miler include biking along North Creek, crossing both Straight and Chatiemac Brooks and their waterfalls (familiar names to Gore Mt. skiers), biking along Mill Brook, passing tiny Riparius and its historic train depot, biking along rural sections of the mighty Hudson River as it flows through the Village of North Creek to Riparius…and finally, possibly saving the best for last, biking on the suspended boardwalk trail that crosses under Rt. 28, bringing riders back to the Ski Bowl.
Each course is supported by rest stops, SAG wagon(s), and bike tech. Volunteers needed!
Registration will open in January 2020. Please contact ADK's Annual Fund Manager, Sunday Conine at email@example.com
