Below are the daily elevations for the Adirondack Tour. Beware when looking at these! The jagged lines can look very intimidating. Take a close look at the scale on the left as compared to the miles on the bottom of the chart. This is an intermediate road tour and there is not any way to avoid the ups and downs. It’s like a roller coaster! Complete with beautiful views.
Don’t let this chart intimidate you! We begin in Burlington, Vermont and then continue across Lake Champlain. The climbs are gradual, and there are so many opportunities to hop off your bike saddles for a short break and beautiful views!
The day includes a few ups and downs before becoming nearly flat as we loop from Saranac Lake to Lake Placid and back.
This chart looks quite dramatic, but do not let those spikes intimidate you! The ride begins with nearly 30 miles of gentle rolling hills, before we reach our first “climb”. Don’t be fooled by the spike on the chart though, we will only be climbing a little over 400 feet.
Look at that descent! Prepare for a fun ride down to Friends Lake.
As you can see, there is 1 climb for the day, then one heck of a downhill! Today’s ride will be fast and fun!
Our final ride of the trip is an exciting one!
