Cycle Adirondacks - Weekender at Paul Smith's College

There is no better setting for a road cycling experience than Paul Smith's College. Its 14,000 acre lakeside campus is perfect hub for you to explore the beautiful Saranac Lake region by bicycle. But this event is so much more. It's a waterfront campfire with a guitar and friends. It's a few paddle strokes on a pristine pond while listening to the enchanting call of a loon. It's drinking in crisp forest smells while strolling a boardwalk along a nearby bog. It's a personally guided tour of a Historic Great Camp that once served as a summer retreat for President Calvin Coolidge and his family.

For lodging options, you can choose between a campus dorm room, RV/Camper parking or the iconic Hotel Saranac a few miles away in postcard perfect downtown Saranac Lake. 

And best of all, the Weekender is dedicated to supporting the Paul Smith's College Climate Fellowship Program, which provides funds to students who design personal expeditions and collect climate stories from across the world.

This year's event will directly support a group of students and faculty - who you'll get to meet on the Weekender - on a self supported bicycle trip throughout the northeast to gather climate stories. 

NOTE: For the safety of all, this summer's event will be limited to 50 guests. New York State and Paul Smith's College protocols regarding COVID-19 will be followed.
