Experience the best of the Finger Lakes as you pedal past gorges, waterfalls, farmlands, lakes, and vistas with Cornell Outdoor Education's expert bike leaders. Ride fifteen to thirty miles a day through quiet back roads and up and down the moderate hills typical of this beautiful terrain. You need not have competed in the Tour de France, but reasonable physical fitness and biking ease are each a plus. We'll work our way up from moderate to longer rides, and we'll break at a few destinations for picnic lunches, hiking, and contemplative awe. We'll also enjoy the support and camaraderie of the group. Equipment and transportation fee: $250.
