Adirondack Mountain Bike Festival
Old Forge, New York

Saturday & Sunday, October 5 & 6, 2019

McCauley Mountain, Old Forge, NY

Cooler temperatures, stunning fall foliage, the absence of annoying bugs, and about 25 miles of top-grade, machine-built and hand-built trails will combine to make the Adirondack Mountain Bike Festival on October 5-6, a spectacular autumn event and one that should be at the top of people’s list of seasonal activities to check out
It’s an opportunity for experienced riders, novices, and those curious about the sport, to meet and test out the area’s new and improved trails, chat with vendors and exhibitors on hand, demo a few new bikes, ride along on a guided trail tour, and enjoy a couple of days of fun, food, and music immersed in nature and surrounded by the great outdoors.
The parking lot at the base of McCauley Mountain Ski Area will serve as the main staging area for all events and activities, as well as the trailhead for exploring the vast network of climbing and flow trails that extend to Maple Ridge above and Old Forge below.
Registration: there are several options for registration: Festival Weekend (Includes food and drink daily, event t-shirt and some cool swag from our partners and sponsors!), the Adventure Race, and The Big Deal.
