Head out on the highway
What's your favorite thing about motorcycle tours? Endless scenery? Fun-filled stops along the way? Amazing weather that's not too hot, not too cold, but just right? Well, Goldilocks, have I got a place for you to ride! The Whiteface Region in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains has gorgeous scenery full of soaring mountains, sweet roads that wind around rivers and lakes and crest over rolling hills and in mountain valleys. Stops? So many great choices, whether you're looking to settle in for the night, grab some BBQ, or check out a can't-miss attraction. Oh, and the weather? It's awesome, but don't take my word for it: come see for yourself!
Check out great riding loops and routes that we've put together to help you plan your next, sure to be the best ever, motorcycle tour.
Plenty of Peaks
If you've ever wanted to ride your motorcycle to the top of a mountain, past scenic lakes and stop for some classic comfort food, this is the trail that you cannot miss. On this loop, climb Whiteface Mountain, the fifth highest mountain in the state, stop at falls and scenic walking trails, dig into the legendary pie at the Noonmark Diner surrounded by jaw-dropping peaks, and kick back at a hidden gem of a bar and restaurant that bikers can't get enough of.
Can't Miss Motorcycle Loop
There is nothing on this loop that you won't totally love. I'm not saying that because I created it but because every stop offers something distinctively Adirondack, something flavorful, something scenic, and of course, great fun. Start at Whiteface Mountain and make your way through the 'Dacks to hit waterfalls, a biker bar or two, a historic covered bridge, and beautiful mountain views. And the roads themselves? Imagine fabulous curves. Imagine yourself swooping over a rise to find jaw-dropping mountains before you. Imagine eating buffalo wings with a view of a sparkling lake. Life is good here. Really good.
Looking for even more motorcyle tours in the Adirondacks? Go further afield and check out the rides in the southern portion of the Adirondacks. The Scenic History ride offers great views, great roads, and some cool Adirondack historic sites. The Lake Champlain route hits sweet spots along one of the largest lakes in the nation. Be careful, though: those big lake views can be distracting!
Ready to plan that trip? Check out some of the fantastic lodging options in the Whiteface Region. From vacation rental cabins to comfy motels that are very bike friendly, there are great options for you to set up basecamp.
