Cycling is a beautiful sport, so it should be presented in deserving locations. And what better place to stage a weekend of cycling, geared toward all ability levels, than in Lake George and the incredibly scenic roads of the Adirondacks in Warren County.
Having brought Ironman to Lake Placid, Centurion Cycling Founder Graham Fraser knows the area well.
“I always tell people that the best cycling I’ve ever done in the U.S. is in the Adirondacks,” said Fraser, adding, “It’s a wow, you can’t believe you got to do that and then you want to come back again and again.”
That is why Centurion Cycling will kick off is 2012 series of cycling events with Centurion New York (Lake George) the weekend of June 22-24. Filled with events to excite racers, serious cyclists, recreational riders and kids, those interested in biking can make a weekend of it or pick just one day.
At Centurion New York, no matter whether you plan to race or ride, everyone gets the pro treatment. Centurion Cycling events feature traffic control throughout, coordinated start with pace corrals, chip timing from start to finish, technical and medical support, feed zones on course and a finish line festival to greet you as you cross the finish line.
Spectators are encouraged to attend Centurion New York. The best viewing is along the start/finish on Beach Road, and along the course route in Bolton Landing and Chestertown for the Centurion 50 and Centurion 100. For the Friday evening Hill Climb events, the best viewing is at the start line, finish line or at any of the lookout sections on Prospect Mountain Highway.
At the end of the day, Centurion Cycling’s goal is to get more adults and kids on bikes. “I like to see people fit, I love to see people changing their lives,” Fraser said. “Cycling can do that for so many people. Everyone has the opportunity to be a Centurion.”
