Tour Overview

The Majestic Finger Lakes Bike Tour

Home to breathtaking scenery and world class wineries, the Finger Lakes offer some of the finest country road cycling in the US. Ride alongside canals, through pastoral farmland, and past vineyards that sprawl to the lakeshores on this Finger Lakes bike trip.

Immerse yourself in premier accommodations that overlook the lakes and dine upon the gourmet cuisine of the region Wine Spectator magazine called “the wine and culinary epicenter of New York.” Charming small towns showcase some of the region’s most historic and beautiful lakeside homes and are filled with quaint shops offering specialty products.

Cycle a bike path along the historic Erie Canal, the original gateway to the west. The waterway now serves pleasure craft that must navigate the series of locks that still operate. Ride through picturesque Mennonite communities whose transportation is by bicycle or horse and buggy on this archetypal upstate New York bike tour.

Formed millions of years ago by glacial activity, the Finger Lakes support a region rich in both geologic and cultural history. The region is the largest grower of wine grapes outside of California, boasting over 5,000 acres of lush vineyards. Rows of hillside vineyards frame the lakes with a changing array of textures and colors that flourish during the late summer seasons when we visit.

Tour Itinerary

  • Day
    1

    Ease into the week with a warm-up ride along the Erie Canal. Geneva is home to Hobart and William Smith Colleges, and the town showcases some of the region’s most historic and beautiful lakeside homes – one of which is now Geneva on the Lake, your accommodation for the evening. Join us for a welcome dinner tonight on the terrace.

  • Day
    2

    Bluffs between the north-south running lakes feature expansive farmland and fabulous cycling. Roads are lightly traveled through miles of beautifully kept Mennonite farms where horse and buggy or bicycles are the most popular forms of transportation. Tonight we stay at the Watkins Glen Harbor Hotel, an upscale, newer hotel that features commanding views of the Seneca Lake.

  • Day
    3

    Ride through rural farmland en route to Ithaca and scenic Cayuga Lake. Several country wineries beckon a visit along the route to the charming village of Aurora. A welcoming oasis awaits you at the end of your ride when you roll into the Inns of Aurora.

  • Day

    Visit the original estate of MacKenzie-Childs, the whimsical home decor manufacturer, or book a one-of-a-kind wine tour by boat.

  • Day

    Ride east to the town of Skaneateles at the north end of the lake that bears its name. Toast the week’s adventures during a reception and dinner at the Mirbeau Inn and Spa’s acclaimed restaurant.

    The final ride of the week is one of our favorites. Follow the lakeshore south through verdant farmland as the route winds along the valley floor.
