Back in 2011 a couple of 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 2021 and this informal gathering has evolved into the annual Lake Placid Smashfest. 

The 2021 Lake Placid Smashfest will be benefit ‘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.

All riders will receive a customized t-shirt and water bottle.
