Not to be missed is the ride we call our "Great Alpaca Round-Up". It's 15 miles of riding bliss along the Tomhannock Reservoir. The water source for the City of Troy, NY is the Tomhannock Reservoir, a man made reservoir 6 ½ miles northeast of the City. The reservoir is 5 ½ miles long and holds 12.3 billion gallons when full. We will be traveling on the east side of the reservoir. This is a relatively flat route with only a couple of moderate hills. Our friends at the Otter Creek Alpaca Farm will give us a guided tour of their farm and allow us an up close experience with their fine animals. Yes, they do have a gift shop for all of your Alpaca needs. Who doesn't need some nice warm socks? This picturesque route will be an out and back, so the return trip will have the reservoir on your right side.
This is always one of our most talked about rides and full of surprises!
Group members only please. As always call (518)[masked] or email bikebarncycles@gmail with any questions.
