Itinerary

Day 1 - Friday: Saratoga Springs, NY - Saratoga Springs to Glens Falls

We meet at The Inn at Saratoga at 1pm.  After a short bike fitting session, we ride out of the city through the beautiful farms and horse pasture surrounding Saratoga Springs and make our way to the shores of the Hudson River.  We bike north along the shores of the river and connect with the Feeder Canal bike path that leads us to our lodgings in downtown Glens Falls at the Glens Falls Inn.  That evening we enjoy dinner and sample the craft brews at Davidson Brothers Brewing Company.
Lodging: The Glens Falls Inn
Meals: Dinner

Day 2 - Saturday: Glens Falls to Lake George Village

First thing in the morning we continue north out of Glens Falls and catch the Warren County Bikeway as we make our way to Lake George Village.  Once there, guests have a number of options.  Cyclists can choose to take a Shoreline Cruise to Bolton Landing and cycle back  to our lodgings in Lake George Village.  Other options available include staying in Lake George Village for an afternoon shopping break,  browsing the shops and boutiques, or doing some siteseeing (Fort William Henry is right next door).  A spectacular view of  the lake can always be enjoyed right from the front porch of our historic lodgings.  That evening we dine and sample the brews at the Adirondack Brewery.

Day 3 - Sunday: Lake George Village to Saratoga Springs

We turn south out of Lake George Village and follow the Hudson River to make our way to the rolling hills leading us back to Saratoga Springs.  The uncroweded roads offer us ample opportunities to enjoy both the views along the river and the forest canopy embracing the roadways through the hills.  Bikers will enjoy the long downhill stretch on the last miles of our journey; we coast into Saratoga Springs and head to our lodgings. We spend our last night dining and tasting the selection of brews at Druthers Brewing Company in Saratoga Springs.
Lodging: Inn at Saratoga

Day 4 - Monday: Saratoga National Historical Park

Today we bike the Saratoga Battlefied located in the Saratoga National Historic Park; the park offers bikers a great ride on the private road that circles the interior of the park.  The circle road connects the many historical landmarks associated with the battle that turned the tide of the revolutionary war and set the colonists on the path to victory.  Afterwards we bike back to Saratoga Springs and the tour will officially end.  Showers will be available for those wishing to change and freshen up before departing.
