TRIP DESCRIPTION

This new tour takes in the heart of the Finger Lakes region of New York State, from the old Erie Canal towpath trail to the many new wineries springing up along the lake shores; from the rich Women's Rights heritage of Seneca Falls to the extensive network of state parks with beautiful campgrounds. It's little wonder this part of New York is becoming widely recognized as a first-class, bicycle-touring destination.

Along the route, we'll stop at many lakeside villages and small cities to enjoy snacks and lunches, and camp primarily at state and local campgrounds, taking advantage of lake swimming, gorges, and waterfalls. There will also be opportunities to tour the wineries and museums lining our route, and we've built in a layover day with a great variety of off-bike activities available.

The Finger Lakes area is noted for its hilly terrain, but we've carefully designed the route and the daily mileages to make the trip enjoyable for intermediate-level riders with loaded bikes. Join us for what promises to be a fantastic loop ride!
