Adirondack Route - short version?
« on: July 18, 2009, 02:44:57 pm »
Hello - I will have 3 days to do some cycling in the Adirondacks. I have the map(s) for the entire loop but will not have time to do the whole loop. I was thinking about a shorter loop. For example, one might start and end in Warrensburg and come down 28N or 28. I was wondering if it was possible and safe enough from a traffic perspective?

I am open to hearing suggestions, experiences...
I could ride up to 200 miles in the 3 days but preferably not less than 150.

Thanks so much!

If you don't get an answer from the forum, try contacting the NY DOT bicycle coordinator.

Somebody replied to me in another thread that they see cyclists on 28N frequently.

I see cyclists on 28N a bit and it has a really wide shoulder so I see no problem in terms of traffic (which is non-existant, except for perhaps the intersection of 28N and Rt 30 in Long Lake... but certainly nothing compared to say Lake Placid... ).

Rt 28 between Warrensburg and Rt 28N is fairly busy during summer weekends and Warrensburg will have some lights, parked cars, traffic, but I don't think it's too big a problem for any experienced cyclist who knows how to ride with traffic. I don't go through Warrensburg too often but I don't think it would be much a problem for cyclists...
