Starbuckville to Beaver Pond Bike ~ Jul 18, 2013

Journal entry by Ken Gericke

More sizzling temperatures on Thursday. After several emails from folks who could not attend, and little in the way of positive responses, I toyed w/the idea of cancelling our bike ride due to the heat. Decided to persevere and arrived at WCMC to find only Peter and Jim I. We believed that the 3 of us were likely the whole group, but I loaded my bike onto Peter's car rack and the 2 car caravan headed up the Northway to the town of Horicon and Starbuckville Dam. As we turned the corner from Watering Tub Rd to the parking area by the dam, we were delighted to see 7 more hardy Caners waiting for us. So off we went, packing extra water, riding along the Schroon River, and the shores of Schroon Lake, arriving at the Village of Adirondack around mid morning. After a short break, we continue on to 'idyllic' Beaver Pond, before turning back to Adirondack for an early lunch/snack at the streamside picnic tables. As usual, lunch and friendly Caner conversation are over too soon, and we mount up to retrace our route to Starbuckville and the cars. Special Thanks to all...Peter, Jim I, Jan, Kathy and Don, Rose, Joanne, and Dave and Mary. Ken 7/24/13 - Wanderer . added 4 photos.
