Join our e-mail list to be alerted when new course information is available (late December).

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 15 to 30 miles a day with elevation gains of 1,500 feet 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 spots for picnic lunches, hiking, and contemplative awe. We'll also enjoy the support and camaraderie of the group. Equipment and transportation fee: $250.
