Bike and Wine tour of the Finger Lakes Region

  • to

  • Watkins Glen State Park

    1009 N Franklin St, Watkins Glen, NY (map)

    42.376163 -76.871170

  • The plan:

    We will drive Friday evening to Watkins Glen campsite. Saturday we will drive to Geneva and start biking back from there to Watkins Glen. (35.6 miles)

    We will try to hit as many wineries as we can on the way. The route to Watkins Glen has dozens of wineries. We will stop every few miles, get a few bottles of wine, drink them and move to the next winery. 

    Sunday we will do a short hike to the waterfalls in the area, maybe hit one of our favorite wineries from the day before to get some bottles for home and drive back to NY. 

    Bikes:

    If you bring your own bike make sure you have a spare tire in case of a flat on the way. I have the tools to replace a tire but I only have a spare that fits my bike. 

    If you don't have your own bike or can't bring it because there is no space you can rent a bike for the weekend for $60 from Geneva Bicycle Center. 

    Camping:

    We will camp at Watkins Glen campsite on the southern tip of Seneca Lake. You need a sleeping bag. Tents are optional. We have enough tents to share space if you don't have one. 

    Rides:

    Please use the comments section to post whether you need a ride or can offer rides and also if you can take any bikes in your car.

    I will repost this trip for next weekend. Too many things working against it this weekend. We don't have enough rides plus it is supposed to rain intermittently in Watkins Glen on Saturday. I will cancel this meetup and repost it. Please resign up on the other one if you still want to come.
