As stated in the pre-seeding post; I had planned a nice ride. First up to Americade then on into
Vermont, New Hampshire and then Bar Harbor, Maine where I had a job to shoot. Well, it cancelled.
"Stuff" does indeed happen; but all ended well. Thanks again to Mark and Doug!
Prior to my departure from Lake George I did attend the commercial exhibits. I mean we always
can buy more stuff for the ride. Met some wonderful folks ate at the German Wurst Haus again, always good. Had the Bratwust smothered in kraut and peppers!
The commercial exhibits had everything you would expect at a large bike rally. From bags and goodies
to leather and pin striping.
Didn't do a lot of riding. Was there for only two days. Did ride up 9N along the lake. Stopped for the views along the way. Plesent little town, Bolton. Where you will find a memorial to the soldiers of
World War I - Present.
From Bolton continue north where you will find good sweeping turns and some twisties. Speed limit is
55 and although you can exceed that for the "thrill" of the ride, I wouldn't. At one of the wide spots in
the road you zipped passed Mark of ROADPICS.COM. Be sure to check out your photos at his website:
9N is a beautiful ride. Here are some sights along the way
The photo of the church above was taken at the Silver Bay YMCA look for it just a couple of miles north of the turn out also above. Your ext is at Silver Bay Road on the right, Beautiful place to visit with wonderful architecture.
Silver Bay YMCA was established in 1900. There are many fine examples of Adirondack architecture.
If you packed a lunch it is a great place to sit back in one of the classic chairs and enjoy a break from the ride.
After the day in the saddle I returned to Lake George Village for dinner. One of the finest places is the Tamarack Inn. This fine dinning house was purchased in 1964 by Joseph and Jeanne Ferrone and has been a family business since. Your hosts now are John and Joelle and they serve up a fine array of culinary delights from the simple pancakes for breakfast to what I had for dinner - wonderful Prime Rib. Tamarack Inn is located at the north end of the village on the right.
Arose the following morning to visit the commercial exhibits with first an early stop at the Prospect Mt Diner. If you don't want to wait around for a table, get there early!
I have ridden some of the many roads in the area. Taken a couple of the fine tours Americade hosts.
This time I only had time for a short run; and I chose to ride 9N and 8. For some fine twisties take
a run on Route 8. Be careful for there are lots of houses in the area.
See You Down The Road
