Tandem bike rally was biggest yet

To the editor:

This year’s Saranac Lake Tandem Rally, June 13-15, was the biggest yet with more than 50 tandems and three quads (four-seaters) representing 11 states and two provinces. Riders came from as far away as Texas!

We want to thank the North Country Community College for allowing us to use its facilities for the ride starts each day. Hopefully, next year we will be back downtown with the renovated Hotel Saranac as the headquarters and the newly paved roads for the starts.

The riders also praised Gauthier’s Saranac Lake Inn and the Adirondack Motel for their great accommodations and unsurpassed hospitality.

We also had eight tandem teams stay on with us for a week of touring in the area. They loved staying at White Pine Camp and the lovely meals catered by Lakeview Deli.

All in all, folks just love coming to Saranac Lake to ride and have fun. And why not!
