[JK: I received this email from Ed Lindner regarding Bikeatoga festivities this month. Sounds like fun!]
It’s going to be a great cycling weekend! This is a ride, not a race and foliage should be at or near peak.
Start your morning with a hearty and healthy buffet breakfast catered by 9 Miles East. Here’s the menu! Ride at your own pace on one of three routes each day – 30, 50, and 75 miles – with full SAG support.
Saturday’s rides will celebrate the 246thanniversary of the Battle of Saratoga. Ride the back roads through the fields where American forces first defeated the British army. And don’t be surprised if you hear muskets and cannon fire. Re-enactors portraying Continental soldiers and British Redcoats will be in the Saratoga National Historical Park that day!
Sunday’s rides will follow beautiful routes through fields, farmlands and gorgeous Fall foliage.
After the ride, relax, shop and dine in downtownSaratoga Springs. All participants will get a commemorative t-shirt and a day pass to the Saratoga YMCA facility – unwind with a swim, sauna, HydroMassage (addt’l fee) or afternoon yoga class after the ride!
