Back in 2011 a couple friends went off the beaten trail of the Ironman Lake Placid bike loop and ventured onto the roads less traveled. Having discovered these amazing Adirondack roads, an unofficial gathering of friends began heading out from the Lake Placid Brew Pub every year on the Saturday before IMLP. Fast forward to 2019 and this informal gathering has evolved into the annual Lake Placid Smashfest. 

The 2021 Lake Placid Smashfest will be benefiting Ride-4-Claire

Riders in this year's edition of Smashfest will be treated to a gorgeous route that really shows off the beauty of the summer time Adirondacks. The course will be fully marked, offer an on-course aid station, for all participants, and even have a Strava KOM/QOM segment for those riders looking to get the competitive juices flowing. All riders will receive a customized t-shirt and five raffle tickets for post-ride festivities. 

Can't make the ride, but would still like to contribute?  You can purchase a T-Shirt or make a donation and the proceeds will still benefit Ride-4-Claire
