September 12-17, 2021 Saratoga Springs, NY
Join in the fun as the 75th Anniversary of the Glidden Tour takes to the scenic roads of upstate New York, and enjoy the fall splendor of the Adirondack Mountains. We will even be covering some of the same route as taken in the 1906 Glidden!
The celebration of this classic tour's history will be highlighted as Jeff Mahl takes you back to 1906, '07 and '09, when George Schuster (Jeff's Great Grandfather) participated in the early days of automobile touring and the start of the historic Glidden Tours! With original pictures and very early film, experience what it was really like to "tour" over 115 years ago. Share George's recollections of his fellow competitors including Percy Pierce, Charles Glidden, and even stunts the "Press Boys" played to liven things up.
