For those of you that have never been riding around Lake George, NY you just have to go! The area is absolutely beautiful, the people (at least those we met) were friendly, and of course the roads were amazing! Our ride from Ottawa down to Lake George is a fantastic ride and is one that takes the good part of a day (especially if you are not racing like a demon, and if like you are like me, you like to take in the sights and really enjoy the ride). Once down there though plan on spending a couple of days just riding around. There are some many roads and the concept of getting lost down there is easy accomplished.
So as much as I could sit here and tell you all how much I loved the area and the riding, I’m just going to place 2 videos below of 2 such rides. One of them is a group ride that some of us did up to Mount Prospect. Not a long ride by any means (if you are leaving from Lake George) but a nice ride. One thing to be aware of is that this is a Park (not sure if it’s a State or National Park). So you have to pay to enter. Its $5 per bike (not rider) which gives you all day access.
The other video that I will post below is the ride from our B&B into Lake George. We stayed at a place called the Glenmoore Lodge which is about a 15 minute ride into the village. Bonus of staying here was that it was a place that we could get away from all the sounds and action when we wanted peace and quiet. Plus it was just nice at the end of a day of walking around and riding to sit and look out over the Lake (Glen Lake).
I hope you enjoy the videos.
