Adirondack Daily Elevation

Below are the daily elevations for the Adirondack Tour. 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.

Day 1

Don’t let this chart intimidate you! We begin in Burlington, Vermont and then pedal south to Middlebury, Vermont. Most of these climbs are steep, but they’re pretty short. We’ll use these 35.6 miles today to warm up and get used to the hills in the Adirondacks!

Day 2

After touring Fort Ticonderoga, the ride today includes one big climb out of the Hudson River Valley, then a mellow ride around Brant Lake. If you want to cut off some miles, start your ride at the top of the hill and enjoy the cruise down to the lake! Today’s we’ll do 36.2 miles.

Day 3

Today we ride along the Hudson, enjoy some rolling hills through the forest, drop back down to the river and then climb up to Garnet Hill Lodge. Don’t worry, the van will be nearby to shuttle you to the top of the last climb if you’d rather not do the big hill! We ride 44.2 miles today.

Day 4

Today’s ride looks intimidating on the chart, but the climbs are really just rollers. Over 45.7 miles today, you’re only climbing 2200 feet (that’s a lot less than yesterday!) Use the momentum of the downhills, and you’ll shoot halfway up the next climb!

Day 5

Today we ride most of the Lake Placid Ironman loop! It’s a challenging and scenic ride. From Saranac Lake, the ride is rolling for a while, then we’ll enjoy a long descent into the Keene Valley. Ride along the Ausable River, then do a gradual climb back up to Lake Placid at the end.


Day 6

You’ve really earned this last day’s ride – it’s mostly downhill! We’ll ride a few miles of gradually rolling hills, then descend all the way back down to Lake Champlain to catch our ferry back to Burlington.
