7-12-19 - Riders Info Packets have been sent to all registered bikers. Contact FANY if you didn't get yours.
Ride With GPS digital files will be emailed this weekend, so you'll have time to download them before FANY.

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.

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).

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!
