Cycling around Saranac Lake
Start downtown and head in any direction — the open road awaits! Saranac Lake is a hub for cycling, with a variety of terrain extending to every horizon. There are long straightaways through farm country, twisting backroads that wind and dip through lush forests, and plenty of wide open views across lakes and valleys that are ringed by mountains. In between all of the vistas there are amenities to keep you well-rested and refueled for the next adventure.
