5-5-19 - Yippee! Our new route this year is really catching a lot of attention. Our 1st bus is already filled, and our 2nd bus only has 26 seats left. This bus will depart Poughkeepsie for bikers who sign-up for the Full Ride bus, and then stop in Glenmont (near Albany) to also pick-up people who sign-up for the 4-Day bus option.
We'll post when we've filled up both busses, but you'd better hurry and pick your seat now :-)
Return bus, and 2-Day options still available.
4-6-19 - RENTAL BIKES ! Our exclusive bike rental sponsor, has several models available & will deliver to you at our 7/20/19 bus in Poughkeepsie, and meet you after FANY on 7/26 for easy returns.
3-29-19 New for 2019! - a BREAKFAST OPTION for 3 of our
towns. Strongly recommended if you like to eat breakfast before heading out onto the road. Otherwise breakfast is 15-18 miles along the route.
3-8-19 Wednesday's 50 route has been modified, (in anticipation of Thursday's 61 miles). Wed was a highly scenic 4017' climb/50 mi with 13.2% max grade. It's now revised to be 2576' climb/50 mi with 8.4% max grade. So we reduced ALL the profiles to a "Y" scale of 800' and each day now reveals the hill details a little better. (a look at Profiles).
Flying to FANY? Or taking Amtrak to Plattsburgh? Need to pre-ship your bikes?
Viking Ski & Cycle in Plattsburgh will receive your bike.
Ledge Hill Brewing Co. is a short 2 minute walk from where we'll be camping in WESTPORT on Sunday 7/21/19. Fine craft beers, and a deck looking all the way across to Vermont. Bike happy indeed!
