Adirondack Climbs profile is loosely based on a series of hikes through the beautiful Adirondack Mountains in Upstate New York. There are 46 peaks that make up the Adirondack High Peaks, and some folks take on the challenge of hiking all 46 of them. This ride is based on one of the smaller scale challenges, which involves six of the peaks and is named the Saranac Lake 6er —for the 6 Adirondack mountains that surround beautiful Saranac Lake.
This is a great ride if you do a lot of visualization with your classes. Take your class to the top of each peak and describe the beautiful landscape along the way. Describing what the view will be like when they reach the summit will motivate riders to reach the top.
This video has additional information you can use to add more flavor to your profile.

I did this class last week and it was so fun because I live in Alaska and have never been to the Adirondacks and we had a lot of fun talking about that part of the world. I am a geologist too so I had to talk about the rock types of the Adirondacks and how old they are etc. Plus we live in a rainforest so we loved imagining all the fall colors back there. I watched the video so I had an idea of what the trails were like. The video really helped. I love your profiles as your music tastes and mine are closely aligned so I don’t have to find new music! Always from Alaska
So glad you liked the profile Katy! Thanks for commenting. 🙂
Read it. Enjoyed it. Another new idea to make me look smarter than I am. I thank you!!
You are quite welcome Vivienne!
