Some great riding days involve more than just riding. This will be one of those days.

It's also a Freedom Pass ride (see below) valued at $55; sold at $39.

The Ride: You'll ride north along the shores of Lake George and Lake Champlain, with the New York's Adirondacks on your left and Vermont's Green Mountains to your right. The route is a wonderful mix of twisties, gentle sweepers, and lake-shore cruising. It happens to include several of our favorite east/west mountainous routes, which involve many left-right-left sweepers. So, you'll see it all in one day's riding. Your ride is valid any day of Americade Week, so you can cherry-pick the best riding day (a benefit of a Freedom Pass ride).

The Destination: You'll arrive at "The Grand Canyon of the Adirondacks." It's a 150 deep chasm, carved over eons by a serpentine river running through it. You'll have a ticket that allows you to walk the most scenic walking tour in the Adirondacks. Wander for one to five miles on well-maintained, self-guided walking/hiking trails where one spectacular view after another awaits. Each of the many scenic vistas provides you with a different perspective of the natural beauty. Your ticket is valid any day of Americade Week (a benefit of a Freedom Pass ride).

The Lunch: Lunch is waiting for you at a unique destination. The first $15 of your lunch is already paid for, and you can choose from anything on the menu, and you can arrive any day during Americade Week (benefits of a Freedom Pass ride).

What is a Freedom Pass ride? It's a ride where you're not locked into a particular day or a particular menu, giving you maximum flexibility:
*Want to wait for a sunny day to ride? No problem. The ride, the entrance ticket, and the lunch are good for any single day during Americade Week, so you can wait for the sunniest day to ride.
*Your lunch ticket is good for any food on the menu. You're not locked into a set meal.
*And, the Freedom Pass pays for the first $15 of your lunch at the restaurant on whatever day and time you choose during Americade Week. Your choice - It's total freedom.

WHAT IS AN UnGUIDED RIDE? (psst, it's your best bet to a great day of riding on your own.) Americade UnGuided Rides are the best way to experience the Adirondacks or Vermont on your own or just with your friends, without worrying about finding good routes, smooth pavement, great scenery, and good food! We've done all the planning for you, including pre-riding all the routes and testing the great lunches (it's hard work, but someone has to do it...). You leave on your own, follow the detailed maps we provide and arrive at a very special lunch destination where Americade staff will greet you. Enjoy a scrumptious meal of your choice from the menu with fellow Americaders. Round trip mileages are approximate.

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