UNGUIDED- Long Lake Loop (Tues-Sat)
A scenic ride deep into the Adirondack Mountains & an amazing natural wonder!
The Ride: You’ll ride deep into the Adirondack Mountains along quintessential local routes. Your ride includes a fun mix of road types, most of which we would classify as gently winding (little to no twisties). You’ll pass through small northern towns and villages populated with rustic wooden buildings, arriving at a stunning one-of-a-kind grand lodge in the heart of the Adirondacks. This is a Freedom Pass ride, so your ride is valid any day of Americade Week, so you can cherry-pick the best riding day.
The Destination: You’ll have an entrance ticket to one of the most popular natural wonder destinations in this part of the world. You’ll walk across a huge and tall all-natural rock bridge, see (and enter?) an absolutely huge cave (the largest cave entrance in the eastern U.S.), and explore Noisy Cave and dip under Arch Rock. The self-guided trail winds from cave to cave, with potholes and deep natural pools in between. Take a rest while overlooking Trout Brook as it rushes into the mouth of the cave below.
What's an UNGUIDED RIDE? It guarantees a great ride on your own. We carefully create great riding routes in the Adirondacks and Vermont, on excellent routes on good pavement, with scenic vistas, interesting stops, and great lunch suggestions, all on low-traffic fun riding roads.
- Routes - We obsess about our routes, testing and testing routes so that we can provide you the best one possible on roads you wouldn't normally locate on your own. We emphasize scenery, good pavement, low traffic and traffic lights, safe intersections, good gas stops and clean bathrooms.
- GPS, Turn-by-Turn Directions: You'll have GPS-led, turn-by-turn directions the whole way, with special notifications for great points of interest. You'll know where to turn, where the views are the best, where good scenic stops are, where the best bathrooms are, and more. You'll even be able to see where your riding partners are on the ride! It's like having your own professional motorcycle guide along for the ride.
-Lunch (and dessert): You'll be led to three of the best places to eat on the route. You choose which one suits you best (best food style, least busy, shortest line, etc). After lunch, we try to always include a good desert stop on the return leg.
-Don't have a smart phone, or prefer hard copy maps? No worries - we'll email you a map instead.
-Round-trip mileages are approximate.
If you're coming all the way to the Adirondacks, then why not guarantee yourself a great day of riding?
