Hotel Option - 2020

2020 HOTEL LIST follows below -


If you're not a happy camper, here's a way to enjoy the fun challenge and beauty of FANY while avoiding the whole tent stakes, sleeping bag thing:


LUGGAGE TRANSFER - Hotel Option luggage will be delivered to only these hotels on the FANY list (see below). Since the hotel option eliminates the need for a tent, sleeping bag, etc. the hotel luggage transfer option is limited to one (1) 15"x15"x30" suitcase. Luggage will be delivered to the hotel by 2:00pm each day & left there for your pick-up. In the morning, luggage must be back in the hotel lobby by 8:00am to be picked up by the truck (but you can check-out of the hotel whenever you wish.) Luggage transfer is only included with the purchase of the Hotel Option on the sign-up sheet.


HOTEL LIST - Please make your own reservations directly with the hotels for each night. You are responsible for the advance deposit (if appropriate) and overnight room costs, as well as any cancellation fees (if appropriate). When we have filled the rooms available in any one town, the Hotel Option will appear as "Sold Out" on the Sign-Up form. FANY is offering this list as a convenience, and is not responsible for the hotel services, nor for any expenses you may incur while a guest at the hotel. Sign-up for the Hotel Luggage Option on the Sign-up form. Luggage transfer will only be to hotels on this list for bikers who purchase the Hotel Option.


INDOOR OPTION - If you're reading this page, you probably aren't a fan of camping, so in 2020 there is an indoor option every nite. No extra charge for the Indoor Option, which might be a school gym or a community center. We might need to ask you to help us move tables out of the way after dinner is served. But it's a way to be inside if it's raining, or to avoid setting up your tent, and it keeps you in the camaraderie of the campsite. First come-first served, you can unroll your sleeping mat & sleeping bag and sleep among +/- 50 of your new best friends, so bring ear plugs. No tents allowed indoors.


HOTEL LOCATIONS - Selecting an almighty awesome route was our first priority, and after that we worked to find nearby hotels. Most hotels are between ½ mile and 3.5 miles from the camp site. There's no shuttle service to the hotels. You’re responsible to make your own advance reservations from the list of hotels provided by FANY Hotel Option.


HOTEL OPTION & DINNER OPTION - Camp is considered the "primary" location. FANY started as a camping tour, and remains true to its roots. A special camaraderie develops when everyone ends in the same place at the end of a ride, and brags about the killer hill they climbed (or walked) and revels in the same stretch of perfect back road. So the dinner option and massages are only offered at the campsite, between ½ mile and 3.5 miles from the hotels. Some hotel people sign-up for the dinner option, as a way to mingle with other FANY Riders, but there is no shuttle between hotels and dinner. Taxi phone numbers (when available) will be listed on the cue sheets, and Uber is now in upstate New York. Dinners will be served at the camp at 5:30pm (during FANY sun set is approx. 8:30pm.) Hotels are sometimes near other food options.


PAYING FOR THE HOTEL OPTION - You must book the rooms directly, in your individual name(s), and you will need a major credit card to check in at each hotel. You will be responsible for a deposit (where required) and will pay the hotel directly for your own lodging. The FANY hotel option is for luggage transfer of 1 bag, a convenient listing of all hotel contact information, and additional cue with detailed directions to the hotels.


ROOMMATES - Do we look like Cupid? FANY does not pair up singles seeking roommates to share hotel costs, however we will assist you in sending out e-mails to FANY bikers if you wish to try to try to find a roommate for the week. You can also post on our Facebook page


HOTEL CANCELLATIONS - In the event that you must cancel your own week long hotel reservations, you will be held to the hotel's cancellation policy. FANY will assist you in sending out e-mails if you try to resell your room for the week, but FANY will not be liable for hotel cancellation costs (if any.)
