Lake Placid Area

A three day trip to the area. 2nd Day I did a 480 km ride from Lake Placid - Tupper Lake - Long Lake - Old Forge - Poland - and then back north through the Keen valley and return to Lake Placid. If you watch the video below, click on the "YouTube" in the lower right corner and not the Square for "Fullscreen" thing beside it or you will get a lot of distortion in the video. I don't know why it does that.

Done the trip several times.

The best part was the ride up White Face Mtn and the many, many miles of unmarked back roads through the thick woods with zero traffic or driveways and a sharp corner every few hundred yards.

Nice, I enjoyed the video... I'm from eastern Ontario too and looking forward to trips like this...
I always liked the Old Forge area, lots of nice twisty roads around there..

Nice. I've ridden those areas a few times over the years when I've attended Americade. Great riding and scenery.
