presentation

‘Bike Adventure: A 3,300 Mile Bike Ride Down the Continental Divide’ presented by ADK member Steve Mackey, 7-8:30 p.m., Crandall Public Library, 251 Glen St., Glens Falls. Steve Mackey and daughter Heather completed the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route in September 2018. It is the longest mapped mountain bike route in the world, starting in Jasper, Alberta and ending at the Mexican border in Antelope Wells, New Mexico. It follows the Continental Divide (as well as the Continental Divide Hiking Trail) and crosses the divide 32 times. Around 80 percent of it is on gravel roads with the remainder being single track or paved roads. They averaged 50 to 60 miles per day, riding for two months, with a total of 3,335 miles being on their bicycle odometers. They had quite the adventure, including getting hit by a bus/trailer/kayak, having one of their bikes stolen, getting bogged down in impassable mud, getting rained on five times in one day, having days where they only saw two or three other humans, crossing mountain passes with their bear spray at the ready, and seeing some of the most beautiful, remote scenery in the country.

exhibit

Colorama: From the George Eastman Museum, The Hyde Collection, 161 Warren St., Glens Falls. For more than four decades, enormous advertisements displayed in New York City’s Grand Central Terminal affirmed a picturesque notion of everyday American life. The 18-foot-by-60-foot images depicted an idyllic nation: beautiful landscapes, holiday celebrations, world-changing historical events, family road trips and patriotism. This exhibition examines the captivating advertisements, offering insight into America, and the histories of advertising, photography and technology. Thirty-six reproduced images from the George Eastman Museum depict an idealized past for a new generation, and a welcome reintroduction for those who lived through the decades that helped shape photography. Organized by the George Eastman Museum. Exhibit runs through April 14.

‘Calvin Marsh, A No Foolin’ Frog’ illustrations, 9 a.m.-9 p.m., Friends of Crandall Public Library second floor Art Gallery, 251 Glen St., Glens Falls.
