Plattsburgh, NY (PRWEB) February 26, 2013
Since Velo Quebec visited the Adirondack Coast in 2010 word has been getting out on the area’s great road biking. Picturesque roads wind through miles of farmland connecting family-owned vineyards, orchards and maple sugar shacks. Historic towns steeped in early American history and quaint lakeside villages offer plenty of opportunity for rest and recreation along the way.
Quiet roads with wide shoulders stretch through some of the most gentle lakeside terrain and the steepest mountain climbs. Cyclists pedal past deep Adirondack lakes, soaring mountain peaks and through pristine wilderness without ever leaving the road. In 2010 Velo Quebec described the roads as “velvet” and interest in the area has increased since. The Adirondack Coast is now featured in many itineraries for cycling groups including Tour de l'Île and 2013 Tours by the Adventure Cycling Association.
Biking season typically kicks off in the spring, in May, when the snow is gone and the roads are clean. To get a bike adventure rolling cyclists can visit goadirondack.com/biking for:
