Ride Day 5, Thursday 8/23
Out-and-Back routes from North Creek

CENTURY DAY! (or not)

Yup, the CycleADK Century is now a reality and it’s a sweet one! True to CycleADK form we’re building in a variety of roads, beautiful scenery, enough ascending to let you know where you are, fully-stocked Rest Stops and once again an opportunity to swing by and say hello to our good friend Drew at The Hub in Brant Lake. For some reason we just keep ending up there…the name is clearly appropriate. We’ve built this route with The Hub near the end so you’ll be just a few short miles from camp if you want to take full advantage of the café. Here is how this big day will work: we have two identified routes going out. If your preference is to ride the “40-miler” you’ll head north from camp, retrace the last mile of the route we took into North Creek and then turn off onto some locally favorite backroads. You’ll arrive at The Hub after winding through the woods and along the Schroon River for the first half of this ride. From there it’s back west and north to the North Creek finish on wider roads with ample shoulder. This route is just about equally split between rolling hills and lower, flatter terrain with the climbing in the first and last 10 miles. The CycleADK Century and CycleADK Metric Century overlap each other for the first 100K, arriving back at CycleADK Camp and the metric century finish. To ride the century you’ll simply continue on past the Ski Bowl and follow the 40-miler route. The metric century and century routes will give you two Rest Stops in the first 100K, it will pass CycleADK Camp at the 60-mile mark and The Hub in Brant Lake at the 80-mile point (close enough to CycleADK Camp to take full advantage of the café). It’s as simple as that…all in all a great day on the bike, no matter how you do it.
