The Dinner Option is served at camp Sunday through Friday by a caterer local to each overnight town. It's a convenient and tasty way to enjoy dinner with the company of other FANY Riders if you're too tired to bike or walk into town (or heaven forbid, if it's raining). We offer a vegetarian option, which is not necessarily a vegan option. Cheese is frequently involved. But we also know that some people prefer to explore local eateries, either out of a sense of pure discovery/the thrill of the hunt, or control over menu or budget. So we offer Dinner as an option so everyone has the exact vacation they want. Slightly more than half of FANY Riders usually sign-up for the dinner option at camp, and slightly less than half prefer to forage in town. That means either way you'll have a good chance of finding someone to eat with. When possible, the cue sheets list a few local places that'll deliver to camp, or taxi phone numbers (if the towns have taxis. Trust me, we're staying in cute small towns.)
Yahoo! Comfy Campers will offer a coffee option in the morning - as a week-long option (not daily).

For that price? Are you kidding? Breakfast, lunch and snacks will be available for purchase in the small towns we pass through, and exact mileage locations and hours of operations are well-identified on the cue sheets. We like supporting the small communities of upstate New York. But if you prefer not to forage for supper each night, consider our dinner option, (above) brought right to camp each night that we ride.
Really. In keeping with FANY's independent spirit, we prefer to support the local Mom & Pop stores in the tiny towns we bike through. We also think that it's polite to support them. So the cue sheets identify cafes, restaurants and snackage opportunities along the route, usually every 12-15 miles. Come meet the fine shopkeepers of upstate New York; it's so much more fun than eating the same energy bars all week from a card table in the middle of a field.
