Back in October, Greg Teresi and Anthony Ali proposed brew-cycle tours in Lake George. The proposed route would take the 16-passenger pedal vehicle along Dieskau Street, crossing over Canada Street to get to Ottawa Street. The planned tour would start at Adirondack Brew Pub and stop at Moose Tooth Grill, Courtyard Marriott, and Back Street BBQ & Tap Room.
Earlier this month, Teresi withdrew the proposal in Lake George amid concerns from local residents and village officials. The top concerns were about safety and traffic. Mayor Robert Blais estimated that on busy nights, the tours could be stuck in traffic for upwards of 30 minutes or more. Board members also raised concerns about intoxicated passengers and interactions between pedalers and pedestrians.
Teresi currently operates the Lake George Tiki Tours and brew-cycles in Troy, Schenectady, and Hudson. After many recommendations, he is interested in speaking with decision makers and business owners in Glens Falls before creating a proposal for the city.
Is this a party foul or will it help keep Lake George a family-friendly destination? Share your thoughts in the comments.
