This 25 mile loop includes river views, lake views, and a ride through the woods on a dirt road. The first 11 miles are up and down a little, but nothing major. There's a decent two mile climb on a...

Thanks Cindy :). I figured I'd write up a TR while it was still fresh. I'll write others as I find them while I explore the area from my back door :dance:.



Thanks Alpine1. I haven't done any...

I ended up getting this one (https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?pID=1004) directly from garmin, and picked up a carabiner clip and belt clip while I was there :). Looks like it should mount on the...

I only take mine out of my pocked to check the stats, but I did order the bike handlebar mount. I'm going to have to look at MapMyRide, I hadn't heard of it before this thread.

Hi Cindy, that's the same route I did, and it's all paved. Adirondack Road on the east side of the lake still has a bit of sand on the road that makes some of the curvy downhills a little tricky...

I think it's the sampling rate that makes Strava inaccurate on my iPhone. On the ride around the lake I recorded the trip with both to compare the data. The difference was significant. The app also...

I've seen it, amazon has been suggesting it to me since I bought the car mount kit several years ago. It might finally be time to order it :)

Yes, a lot of up and down north of Adirondack with a couple of tough ones. Crane Pond Road into Crane Pond was a nice ride, too. The unmaintained dirt road has a challenging ford, but the water was...

I never noticed that the boundary in google maps. Perhaps it has something to do with the new MapGL technology they're introducing.

I wasn't able to make it out from MI last year (the first time I'd heard about it), but I am looking forward to it this year, now that I'm closer to the action :dance:.

I try to take something away from every trip, too. These were a couple of very memorable lessons :)

No, I won't. Better trip prep, and not just packing gear! Put waypoints in my GPS so it's harder to convince myself that I'm somewhere I am not.

I climbed over Colden from Lake Colden on Monday (22 NOV), and I think crampons would have been nice near the top (I've never used crampons before), I was really glad I had the Microspikes. They are...
