New York's Finger Lakes Bicycle Tour



Formed millions of years ago by glacial activity, the Finger Lakes support a region rich in history. Ride along the Erie Canal, through pastoral farmland, and past vineyards that sprawl to the lakeshores. Follow the stone steps along waterfalls that cascade through a winding gorge. Enjoy premier accommodations and gourmet cuisine in the region Wine Spectator called the “Wine and Culinary Epicenter” of New York.
