Default Ridin the Adirondack & White Mtns

Can't wait! Leaving on the 28th

1 week to go and my prep is done, I'm sure there will be changes but the route has been chosen and bags have been packed and repacked.

Day 1 = Kingston, ON - St Johnsbury VT
Day 2 = St Johnsbury - Old Orchard Beach, Maine
Day 3 = O.O.B. - Lake George NY
Day 4 = Lake George - Kingston, ON

Participants are dropping like flies, normally the Summer's End ride is upwards of 8 riders but this year various circumstances have pruned our numbers down to 4 and possibly 3. They are gonna miss out on some beautiful scenery!!

Your route looks good, hard to go wrong as that whole area is great. Something to consider is running the shore down along Lake Champlain, and maybe follow the Erie canal down to Albany, nice leisurely run.
