We need to do all the things that normally get done around your house in the spring...raking, garden prep, windows, cleaning gutters, etc. But it's so much more fun to do it with others and help out the Club. Plus, there's baked goods for breakfast and since it's Cinco de Mayo, I thought we'd do a Mexican lunch. How about a Mexican potluck? No worries though...you don't have to bring anything, but if you want to, great! It'll be fun to see what shows up. Call or email to sign up and get more info!

Mountain Bike near Gore Mtn    [ Bike ]

Sat, May 26, 2018, time TBD,   Rating: A+
Leader: Steve Mackey   793-6484


- I thought I would lead a trip on ADK's new Ididaride Mountain bike route. I have not done it, so I'll print up some maps, so we can figure it out, as we go. Here is their description - ADK is excited to announce a new 23-mile route for the 13th annual ididaride! in 2018! The new route is ideal for off-road riders, fat-tire bikes, gravel-grinders and overland riders. For those ididaride! cyclists who prefer being in the woods and a little closer to nature, rather than sharing the pavement and enjoying the expansive views along the traditional 75-mile road course, ADK has replaced the "short" road bike ride from Indian Lake with a 23-mile super-scenic mountain/hybrid bike route tour loop. The ride starts from the Gore Mt. Ski Bowl in North Creek ... just like the 75-mile road bike route. Some highlights of the 23-miler include biking along North Creek, crossing both Straight and Chatiemac Brooks and their waterfalls (familiar names to Gore Mt. skiers), biking along Mill Brook, passing tiny Riparius and its historic train depot, biking along rural sections of the mighty Hudson River as it flows through the Village of North Creek to Riparius ... and finally, possibly saving the best for last, biking on the suspended boardwalk trail that crosses under Rt. 28, bringing riders back to the Ski Bowl.
