Road Biking
Many of the main roads in our area have excellent riding surfaces with wide shoulders. From your doorstep, loops from 5-100 miles meander through old farmland and out of the way roads with very little traffic and very scenic views. Many cyclists tell us that this area is one of the most beautiful areas for riding they have visited. We are also located directly on the biking loop for ‘Ironman Lake Placid’, which allows for race enthusiasts to enjoy the route from their front door.
