A weeklong bike tour in the Adirondack mountain range in upstate New York — meals and accommodations included — is registering riders for its debut next year, Aug. 23 to 29.

Cycle Adirondacks is being organized and produced by the Wildlife Conservation Society, based at the Bronx Zoo, to showcase the natural landscape that is home to a variety of both wildlife‌ and historic towns and villages in Adirondack Park.

The park — six million acres — is one of the largest intact temperate forests in the world and the largest publicly protected area in the contiguous United States.

The tour starts and ends in Saranac Lake, the headquarters of the W.C.S. Adirondack Program, and includes overnight stops in Star Lake, Boonville, Camden, Old Forge and Long Lake.

There will be a layover day in Old Forge, where riders can pedal an optional route or take the day off the bike and enjoy the towns of Old Forge and Inlet.

Registration, capped at 600 participants, costs $1,495 and includes three catered meals daily, fully stocked rest stops, camping spots, hot showers, baggage service, on-course safety support, and a wellness tent.

Total mileage for the week will be 400 to 500 miles, depending on options, with daily routes ranging from 50 to 75 miles. Total elevation gain will be roughly 2,000 feet.

The cost is $1,495, and registration is limited to 600 participants.
