Cycle Adirondacks
Pedal through the beauty of the Adirondack Park

August 19-25, 2017

Year three of the first fully supported road-bike tour of the Adirondack Park.

Cycle Adirondacks is an award winning, fully-supported road cycling tour created by the Wildlife Conservation Society in 2015 as a way to connect people with one of the most spectacular places in North America - the Adirondack Park. WCS' goals for Cycle Adirondacks are to create a tourism opportunity that is low-impact and provides economic alternatives for local communities in the Adirondacks, and to help strengthen the natural resource based economy in this rural area. 
 
In  just two years, Cycle Adirondacks has become one of the most well executed and enjoyable cycling tours in North America. We could rest on those laurels, but we'd rather raise the guest experience bar yet again with an innovative new format for 2017 that features Saranac Lake and two other incredible overnight communities where we'll spend two consecutive nights at each. This new format delivers: 
  • More Ride Distances & Options Than Ever
  • More Off Bike Activities
  • More Community Experience
  • More Breathtaking Scenery & Quiet Roads
  • And...Less Packing & Moving! 
 We're all about the fun.
Our riders said they wanted more ride options and more time to explore the communities. This format provides both and allows you to customize your ride experience so that you can decide to take a day off to hike or ride a shorter route on the days we don't move to a new town. Ride as little as three days or as many as six. The adventure is up to you.

There are, of course, a few things we aren't changing in 2017. Namely incredible locally sourced dining, world class entertainment, delicious NY craft beer and wine, over-the-top amenities, not to mention outstanding organization and support with the same personal guest experience and community connection our riders have come to love. In other words, "The Ultimate Cycling Vacation.”
