The ride is all on road, with wide shoulders for much of the route.

We’ll cycle through the towns and hamlets of Bakers Mills, Wells, Speculator, Sabael, Indian Lake, North River, and back to North Creek. Your ride will take you alongside Mason Lake, Lewey Lake and Indian Lake. A long descent begins in the hamlet of Indian Lake and meets the Hudson River in the hamlet of North River with a relatively easy ride into North Creek. The entire distance along Route 30 and Route 28 to North Creek is designed for the bike enthusiast, with designated bike routes marked on the wide road shoulders.
