Join us on a fun and food-filled bike tour that leaves from Manhattan and heads north to explore the beauty of the Hudson Valley. Highlights include the walkway over the Hudson, the Culinary Institute of America, West Point Military Academy, Roosevelt National Historical Sites, George Washington HQ, Bear Mountain, Hook Mountain State Park, and way too many delicioius bakeries, delis, and cafes. Ride with our dedicated touring staff, or pedal at your own pace with our cue sheets.
Tour dates: Wednesday, April 13 - Sunday, April 17, 2016
Included in the cost of this fully-supported tour is a seasoned guide and a skilled mechanic, daily lunches and dinners, 3 breakfasts, hotel lodging, a van for luggage transport, snacks, nightly happy hours, cue sheets, and gpx files.
The tour starts and ends at our Chelsea store in Manhattan. (Arriving early? Take advantage of the bike routes within NYC! Cue sheets and suggestions will be provided.)
Each day averages approximately 47 miles (rides range from 33-59 miles) with varying levels of elevation gain. On higher mileage days, van shuttles will be available. While we have included many bike paths on our route, when entering and leaving towns, expect standard urban conditions. Out of towners and locals alike will enjoy exploring the many routes within the Hudson Valley.
