Below is a description of the routes normally used for the event. (You can use these routes for your virtual race!)
This year the 16th Annual ididaride! moves a little deeper into the sights and sounds of our beautiful Adirondack countryside. Not far from the start, riders will be able to experience all the benefits of biking through the villages of Pottersville, Adirondack, Brant Lake, Olmstedville, and of course, North Creek. Total mileage has decreased to a 55 mile loop, but there are still plenty of challenging hills!
The 23-mile Gravel Grinder off-road course is for those who prefer to be in the woods and and close to nature. The ride starts from the Gore Mt. Ski Bowl in North Creek. Some highlights of the course include biking along North Creek, 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 biking on the suspended boardwalk trail that crosses under Rt. 28, bringing riders back to the Ski Bowl. Mountain bikes or hybrid bikes are recommended.
The elevation change for the full course is 6,918-feet ~ half up - half down. Which do you think is more fun?
ididaride! is a fully supported ride with four rest stops, with water and snacks. SAG (Support and Gear) wagon and mobile mechanical support provided. Course maps are online.
Do the ride and be proud to shout Hey ididaride!
