Be alert for motorcycles! Americade in Lake George this weekend
LAKE GEORGE (AP) -- The Americade motorcycle rally at Lake George starts this weekend and motorists are being cautioned to be alert for bikers on the Thruway.
Americade will run for a week starting Saturday and is billed as the world's largest touring rally. It draws about 50,000 people to the southeast Adirondacks, many of them using I-87 in the days leading up to events.
Riders also tour scenic Adirondacks roads and accidents are reported each year, some of them serious.
The Thruway Authority has safety warnings running on electronic message boards urging drivers to be alert for motorcycles.
