Your ride begins here (at the top of the hill) where you’ll pedal along quiet roads to the most famous park in the Finger Lakes: Watkins Glen State Park. Glen Creek drops 400 feet, between 200-foot cliffs, carving out 19 stunning waterfalls. It’s truly gorgeous! We’ll walk through the refreshingly cool gorge after having lunch in town. Afterwards, we’ll head to the Inn at Glenora Wine Cellars where you can enjoy a complimentary bottle of wine as you gaze over the vineyards to Seneca Lake from your room’s private balcony.
Day 3: Today is the big day — a 60-mile circumnavigation of Keuka Lake! This morning we’ll ride from the Inn after fueling up on a delicious breakfast overlooking the vinyards at Glenora. Keuka, the Y shaped lake, is the true heart of New York’s Finger Lake wine region. Lunch today is in Hammondsport, voted “Coolest Small Town in America.” From there you’ll cycle around beautiful Keuka Lake, through the town of Penn Yan and past rolling Amish farms before returning to the Inn at Glenora for a second night. Recounting the day’s adventures at dinner on the Inn’s deck is always entertaining!
Day 4: Wake up with the beautiful views of Seneca Lake and enjoy a final day of Finger Lakes riding. Geneva, at the top of Seneca Lake is our starting point today. We’ll ride 25 miles on lakeside paths and gentle farmland roads that’ll lead us back to Seneca Falls where we’ll wrap up our adventure.
