Riding on 41A along Skaneateles Lake

Posted by p4priders on June 15, 2010

Hello!

Depending on our time schedule we  may decide to continue to the Village of Skaneateles and stay with at my apartment rather than stay at a hotel in the Cortland/McGraw area.  If we do decide to push on Day 3, our route will take us along Skaneateles Lake on Rte 41A (which is the road that runs on the west-side of the lake).  This will add about 30-35 miles to Day 3’s mileage total. 

For those who have not had the pleasure of driving or cycling on 41A – it’s a wonderful road-with wide shoulders and scenic views and fairly light traffic.

The first couple miles of 41A wind through a wooded section with steep walls, towering trees and cool shade.  From there the road begins to undulate over rollers as you climb to the summit where you are greeted with spectacular views of Skanaeateles Lake. 

The second half of the ride contains several sweeping downhills and a few ‘minor’ climbs – just to keep you honest.  As a result, we will be riding 41A from Homer (Cortland) to the Village of Skaneateles on Day 3 and we will begin Day 4 from the Village of Skaneateles at 8:00 AM on our way to Watertown.

Happy Riding,
Mike
