Join us for 25-50 mile led road rides over scenic, hilly country roads on both sides of the scenic Taconic Range along New York-Massachusetts-Vermont border (10-13 mph easy pace, but intermediate hilly terrain). 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 (linens, blankets & towels included), 3 breakfasts, 2 happy hours & dinners Saturday & Sunday (meals fit for a foodie!). See "Cost" below for more information. For more trip details and to register, contact Aldo.

This is a very popular trip that can fill many months in advance. Cancellations do occur, wait listing advised.

This trip also takes place on the Labor Day and Columbus Day weekends (posted as "Labor Day Cycling in the Berkshires" and "Fall Cycling in the Berkshires"). If the Memorial Day weekend is not available in your schedule, check out these other weekends.
