July 29 - August 4, 2018

The 18th Annual FANY Ride will again bike 500 miles Across New York.  NEW FOR 2018 - We're planning a new route.  STAY TUNED!  You'll be able to pick the options that make it the perfect ride for you. We'll average 70 miles per day (or 35 mi/day with Sore FANY.)  Primarily a camping tour, but we also have a luxurious Comfy Camper option  and a hotel option too!  Ride with bikers who are serious about having fun.  LOTS OF FUN!  LOTS OF HILLS!  ... we usually climb 20,000'- 25,000' in the week.  Sign up and get on road SAG support, daily gear transfer, breathtaking scenery, marked routes & paper cue sheets, digital cues via Ride With GPS, a stunning souvenir T-shirt and a week's worth of fun with like minded bikers.  (Sorry, whiners need not apply.)

We ride 500 miles across New York simply because it's fun, and because NY has amazing scenery to explore. To us, it's all about the fun challenges & rewards that hills bring, site-seeing along the route, and making new friends. FANY doesn't have traditional rest stops; instead we promote stopping at the local Mom & Pop stores along the route to support businesses in tiny upstate villages.  We consider meeting the friendly people of rural NY to be another chance to explore. Besides, it's the polite thing to do if we're riding through their town. Don't worry, we let them know you're coming, and you'll know their exact mileage. Stopping when and where you want is part of the independent spirit of The FANY Ride.  Sign-up now Or Tell me more!

2017 Supporters

Thanks for your on-going support!


We Support

While we aren't a pledge ride, The Great Big FANY Ride will proudly contribute at least 5% from each paid registration to Double H Ranch, a not-for-profit camp that provides children living with chronic illness a chance to get away and just be a kid in an outdoor Adirondack Adventure.  In 2017, all contributions from The Great Big FANY Ride totaled over $6,300.  A great big THANKS to all who participated last year.    

Additional rider donations are completely voluntary, so if you feel called to get optional pledges from friends or family for all your FANY miles, you'll  help Double H Ranch do wonderful things.   Or if your employer offers a matching donation program, please consider giving on-line, and be sure to list FANY Ride on your check memo line, or in the "Tribute Information " space on the Double H on-line donation form.  Thanks so much!
