Overview

Join us for 25-50 mile led road rides over scenic, hilly country roads on both sides of the scenic Taconic Range along NY-Mass border (10-13 mph easy pace, but intermediate hilly terrain). Enjoy the beauty and color of New England's showiest season! Previous group cycling experience in hilly terrain highly recommended, though not necessary for strong flatland cyclists. $238-$288 per person includes 3 nights lodging in a relaxing country home, 3 breakfasts, 2 happy hours & dinners Saturday & Sunday (meals fit for a foodie!). See "Cost" section below for more information. For more information or to register contact Aldo. This is a very popular trip that fills many months in advance. Cancellations do occur, wait listing advised. This trip also takes place on Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends (posted as "Spring Cycling in the Berkshires" and Labor Day Cycling Weekend in the Berkshires"). If this trip does not fit with your schedule, please check out these other weekends.

"The hills are challenging, but it helps you build up your strength and stamina. The scenery is beautiful, with one gorgeous view after another. It is peak foliage season at this time of year in the Berkshires, so the timing is great!" "Well-planned and led rides through great scenery. The lodging is comfy, the company is fun, and the food is so delicious! What a great weekend! Highly recommended."
