It's official. The ride is going to be on 6-16-12, rain date 6-17. Be there or be square . The ride will start/end at the McDonalds in Johnstown NY. Kick stand up at 9:00 AM. So get there early if you want to get a coffee and socialize. We'll be taking a scenic and twisty 324 mile route threw the Adirondacks. Stopping at a BBQ place just outside of Lake Placid for lunch, ending up back in Johnstown around 6:00.
The first half of the route will be more Scenic Byway than twisty. It will be a good warm up for after lunch. After lunch we go to Lake Placid for coffee if you want, then we head south for some really scenic, some tight twisties, and some nice sweepers. The second half of the day has it all so eat a hardy lunch and be ready to enjoy the ride. There are plenty of gas and restroom spots along the way that we can stop at, and if no one needs anything we'll keep going so we get back on time.
Like any ride "Ride Your Own Ride". It's not a race, it's about having fun. I will be riding at 10 over for the most part, and I will wait at every turn so as to not lose anyone.
Any bike is allowed, all that I ask is that any loud pipes bring up the tail so as to not bug anyone.
We can go to the Travers Diner for dinner as a group or you can go to a number of chain diners within 1/4 mile of the starting/ending point.
For those who need lodging here are 3 that are within 1/2 mile of the starting point. Super 8, Holiday Inn, Microtel
Post up here if your going and I'll add you to the list.
