• The Adirondacks on Two Wheels

    Marc Connelly
    Adirondacks And Beyond Motorcyle Rider Training

    Combine 6,000,000 acres of mountains and lakes with thousands of miles of uncrowded, windy twisty roads.  Add in numerous quaint towns and an endless supply of friendly people, and you have a motorcyclists playground called the Adirondack State Park.

    It can be quite a task for riders to pay attention to the road as you ride through some of the most beautiful landscape to be found on the East Coast.  Two-lane state and county highways wind and twist their way around lakes and over mountains in a never-ending odyssey of visual delights.

    Stop by Sportline Power Products, located at 38 East Quaker Service Road, 4 miles east off exit 19, in Queensbury, NY, and pick up an Adirondack Route Map, made especially for motorcyclists.  Then pick a route, any route. Like RT 9N over Tongue Mountain or RT 2 over Ragged Mountain, or RT 28N up to Long Lake, or RT 8 from Hague to Brant Lake, or RT 73 from Ticonderoga to North Hudson.

    Towns like Lake George, Bolton Landing, Long Lake, Lake Placid, Tupper Lake–to mention a few–offer a variety of food and lodging from camping to 5 star accommodations.

    Whether you leave from the same hotel each morning or travel to a new destination each day, the Adirondack Park offers endless opportunities for two-wheeled adventures.  Stop along the way for some white water rafting, or a visit to the famed Adirondack Museum, stand in awe at the base of the ski jumps in Lake Placid, take a hike on any of the hundreds of hiking trails, or take a float plane ride over some of the most beautiful wilderness in the United States.  Motorcycling in the Adirondacks is as good as it gets.

    Enjoy!
