Through The Adirondack Cascades

Road cycling in the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York can be quite a thrill. For example, take the road shown in today’s featured photo, New York State Route 73 or Cascade Road. A famous section of the Ironman race course, this road weaves eight miles downhill through a narrow gap of highway that squeezes between Cascade And Pitchoff Mountains, past the Upper and Lower Cascade Lakes. A cyclist can reach speeds of 50 miles per hour if she desires. As you can see in the photo, this is a very narrow highway surrounded by lovely Adirondack scenery. If you pay attention, stick to the far right, and pick a good time of day, (no traffic) this can be one of the most exhilarating bike rides in the Adirondacks.
