More than 1,000 participants are expected to take part in a variety of activities at Battlefield Park, ranging from casual riders to world-class cyclists. Events include a 25-mile recreational bicycle ride, an uphill time trial on Prospect Mountain Highway, and longer routes of 50 and 100 miles.
All riders will receive a commemorative, pewter head tube badge and branded pint glass. Organizers plan to create a different badge each year to celebrate the unique Randonnée Cycliste Adirondacks weekend of events.
“We look forward to hosting this picturesque and challenging cycling event. Our physical beauty, hospitality and roadways will provide a perfect setting for the participants,” said Robert Blais, Mayor of The Village of Lake George.
The three-day cycling festival will kick off with live music, pre-ride meal and family activities in Battlefield Park on Friday evening, September 27. All registered cyclists and their families are invited at no additional charge.
For the uphill Time Trial on Saturday and both rides on Sunday, riders will be given timing devices. This will allow organizers to post results online, and participants will then have an opportunity to track and improve their performances each year.
Lake George, located in Warren County, is one of the most popular regions in the Southern Adirondack Mountains of New York. From the more than 20 lakes in the area to the many panoramic vistas, Lake George offers countless activities and unique beauty, especially in September. The RC-A event will be held during the seasonal showcase of color, when the countryside shines with hues of amber, yellow, and crimson.
“We are so proud of the many scenic paths and roadways that Warren County has to offer for cycling enthusiasts, and we are equally proud and delighted that Medalist Sports has chosen to bring its 2013 Randonnée Cycliste Adirondacks ride to our beautiful region,” said Michael Consuelo, Executive Director for the Lake George Regional Chamber of Commerce & CVB. “From the initial contact to today, the group from Medalist Sports has shown the dedication and expertise to making this year’s ride a most successful one. We are so looking forward to this coming September 27 – 29.”
