Ride starts at the Hope Lodge in Hershey PA. One the first day, riders will travel the rural roads of PA to Kutztown for an overnight stay at Kutztown University. Dinner on Saturday night is included as is breakfast the next morning. On the second day, the ride returns to Hershey to a family friendly finish area with food, drink, music and fun! This ride is fully supported with well stocked rest stops, lunch and full mechanical support along the way by local bike shops.
The 17th Annual FANY Ride will again bike 500 miles Across New York. We average 70 miles per day (or 35 mi/day with Sore FANY.) Primarily a camping tour, but we also have a luxurious Comfy Camper option and a hotel option too! Ride with bikers who are serious about having fun. LOTS OF FUN! LOTS OF HILLS! Often affectionately called "summer camp for grown-ups" come earn your bragging rights ... we usually climb 20,000'- 25,000' in the week. Sign up and get SAG support, gear transfer, breathtaking scenery, marked routes & cue sheets, and a week's worth of fun with like minded bikers. (Sorry, whiners need not apply.)
LOTS OF FUN! LOTS OF HILLS! We ride 500 miles from Niagara Falls to Saratoga simply because it's fun, and because NY has amazing scenery to explore. To us, it's all about the fun challenges and site-seeing along the route, and making new friends. FANY doesn't have traditional rest stops; instead we promote stopping at the local Mom & Pop stores along the route to support businesses in tiny upstate villages. We consider meeting the friendly people of rural NY to be another chance to make new friends and explore. Besides, it's the polite thing to do if we're riding through their town. Don't worry, we let them know you're coming, and you'll know their exact mileage. Stopping when and where you want is part of the independent spirit of The FANY Ride.
The Lancaster Covered Bridge Classic (formerly Covered Bridge Metric Century) will be held August 20, 2017 in Lancaster, PA. It offers beautiful routes of 100 miles, 62 miles, 31 miles, and 15 miles. The 100 mile route option, which offers challenging climbing, is new for 2017. Each route traverses through covered bridges and past Amish farms. Proceeds from the ride benefit the Lancaster Bicycle Club’s grant program which has donated over $275,000 for bike-related initiatives and covered bridge preservation since 1999.
