02 Nov Cycle Adirondacks wins New York State Tourism award
The Wildlife Conservation Society Adirondack (WCS) Program based in Saranac Lake was honored Thursday, Oct. 20, by the New York State Tourism Industry Association with a “Partner in Tourism” award for Cycle Adirondacks, an annual week-long road cycling tour of the Adirondacks and surrounding region.
The award recognizes a business or individual not directly affiliated with a tourism agency/entity/attraction whose commitment to tourism in New York state is demonstrated through their unique contributions.
Cycle Adirondacks 2016 featured 310 participants who traveled from 35 different states and provinces to experience the Adirondacks with WCS on a route that featured 45 different communities across six counties.
“As a nonprofit, community-focused conservation organization, it’s incredibly fulfilling to have the tourism industry recognize the importance of how a mission driven event like Cycle Adirondacks can provide positive impact for the region.”
Cycle Adirondacks 2017 is scheduled for Aug. 20-26 next summer. The route will be announced later this fall.
