A diamond of a Tour! The MOST POPULAR ride of 2018!

Your guided ride will take you on a scenic ride along rivers and lakes, on twisty roads and past beautiful farmlands. You'll ride through historic Saratoga Battlefield (newly paved) and over dams to a humble 1915 dairy barn transformed into a world-class hotel & restaurant!

In this idyllic pastoral setting in Saratoga Springs, you'll enjoy an impressive lunch - You'll see why we call this the Diamond Tour.

Your ride home will take you along a meandering river with more breathtaking views of the area! It's the perfect day of riding!

Your outstanding menu will include Chicken Milanese w/Tossed Arugula, Balsamic vinaigrette, Tomatoes, and Red Onion, Roasted Pork Loin or BBQ Pulled Pork- Chef's discretion, Country Style Mashed Potatoes, House Salad, Warm Pasta Salad, Chef's Choice of Dessert, Coffee, Tea & Assorted Soda.

SPECIAL OFFER for Tuesday: Bill Dutcher, who founded Americade (in '83 as Aspencade East) will ride the Diamond Tour on Tuesday. When asked, Bill said "I've never actually had the time to ride an Americade minitour before. This'll be a real treat - and I promise I'll behave !"

SPECIAL OFFER for Wednesday, several Rider Magazine editors will join the Diamond Tour for the entire ride and lunch! This is a RARE opportunity to ride and dine with the people running one of the best magazines. Don't miss it. DiamondD

WHAT IS A GUIDED RIDE? (psst, it's your best bet to a great day of riding.)
Americade Guided Rides are group rides, with at least two tour guides, and are based on what we love about riding (great Scenery, excellent and smooth roads, low traffic and interesting stops). And, we find excellent lunch stops, and negotiate great food prices for you. They are an Americade specialty and allow you to relax & ride, while our friendly guides lead you to the destination where a great lunch awaits you. Our guides provide some commentary via CB. Don't worry about maps, traffic, getting lost, breakdowns or finding a great lunch spot - We've got you covered.

Your day will begin by meeting your guide in the morning on the shores of Lake George, "The Queen of American Lakes" (according to Thomas Jefferson) surrounded by the Adirondack Mountains. We're confident that there is no prettier place to begin a ride. Once you meet your guides, your group will head out at a relaxed pace with your guides leading and following the group. Stops will take place at about an hour into the ride, and after lunch. During the ride, feel free to ask your guides questions, via CB radio.

So, if you're coming all the way up to the Adirondacks, why not guarantee yourself a great day of riding?
