Now in its second year, the nonprofit Cycle Adirondacks tour will bring over 400 people to each community, including 300 cyclists from 35 different states and provinces.
The 2016 event features overnight stops in Hadley-Lake Luzerne, Ticonderoga, Keeseville, Saranac Lake, Indian Lake and Northville, but the tour touches over 45 towns and villages over the nearly 410-mile tour. The event will also engage over 400 community volunteers through the week-long tour.
A project of Wildlife Conservation Society, the event is designed to provide guests with a true connection to the Adirondacks – its breathtaking landscape and the people who make this 6-million-acre park so special.
Registration is still open for those interested in cycling the event or participating as non-cycling Adventure Travelers, but only a few spots are available for either option.
