Tandem Rally & Tandem Tour

For the procrastinators out there, we have three spots open for the Saranac Lake Tandem Rally, June 14-16
Come and participate in the best small (limited to 45 teams) tandem rally.

We also still have space for our Fall Foliage tour of the Finger Lakes Wine Country.

Saturday, September 21st through Sunday, September 29th

Come tour with Rich and Lindy, riding through the tandem friendly Finger Lakes region, a gorgeous area. Enjoy traveling around this land of lakes and vineyards. The tour is created with tandem riding in mind, combining beautiful views, the best roads and routes, and interesting sights along the way. The tour include motel (no camping); detailed route cue sheets, maps, and baggage transfer, limited to 9 couples on tandems.

We will be riding 3 of the distinctive Finger Lakes, passing by Canandaigua, Seneca, and Keuka Lakes, with an abundance of wonderful biking. Cycle along the lakeshores, riding past waterfalls, orchards, vineyards, and spectacular views. Relax at our lakefront lodging on Canandaigua Lake. Discover the beauty of Sonnenberg Gardens in Canandaigua, strolling through the nationally famous color gardens established there in the mid 1800's.

We'll pass sprawling fields of colorful crops, like sunflowers on Canandaigua Lake and rolling vineyards on Keuka and Seneca Lakes. Enjoy tandeming along valleys, hills, and across farmlands with quiet country roads. Taste the best of New York State - great food at restaurants overlooking the water, fine wines like Merlots and Chardonnays from vineyards overlooking Seneca Lake, and grape pies from farms near Canandaigua Lake.

Explore the wonderful Watkins Glen gorge, where rippling waterfalls cut through the deep stone. Learn about the early days of bike, motorcycle, and flying inventions at the Hammondsport Glen Curtiss Museum. Enjoy the distinctive character of Hammondsport by Keuka Lake.

Tandem to Corning, NY and visit the largest Glass Museum in the world.

Share ride highlights and laugh with the other tandem riders at our numerous group get-togethers/Happy Hours and group dinners. Catch up with your tandem friends or make new friends in this welcoming tandem tour.

As you ride, you'll discover why this region of New York State has been valued as a beautiful summer getaway.

The tour package includes:

Seven (7) days of riding
Eight (8) nights lodging
Four (4) dinners
Four (4) afternoon Wine & Munchie 'Happy Hour' get-togethers Maps and cue sheets Baggage transfers .

This rally is a lot of fun with great routes and very social in nature.

Rich and Lindy are great hosts and we are looking forward to attending this rally again this year!
