Ride Description

As a place for beautiful farm lands and places of interest, the area south of and including Rochester, New York, is hard to beat. This tour has a variety of awe inspiring natural sites, interesting history and great riding. Possible locations to visit will include Letchworth State Park, Brockport and neighboring canal towns, the Erie Canal, Mt. Hope Cemetery (including the Fredrick Douglas, and Susan B. Anthony grave sites), the Susan B. Anthony home, the George Eastman House Museum, the Strong Museum, the Glen Curtiss Museum, Canandaigua Lake, and Keuka Lake.

The average daily mileage for the tour is about 40 miles a day with 1,275 feet of climbing. This gives the tour an Intermediate rating.

The weather in early October in this area averages highs in the upper 60’s and lows in the mid 40’s.

This is a point-to-point tour. We will be staying at each location for two nights. Locations include the Country Inn in Mt. Morris, the Hampton Inn in Brockport, the Hampton Inn in Penfield, and the Best Western in Penn Yan. In Letchworth, the Glen Iris Inn includes a great restaurant that is popular for prom dates in the area. We will have a kick-off group dinner at the Glen Iris Inn and our final group dinner at the Keuka Restaurant in Penn Yan.

People Cycling's Ride Rating

People Cycling has four categories for our rides – Easy, Moderate, Difficult, and Challenging. It should be somewhat obvious what these categories mean, but please become familiar with the elevations and distances that define them:

Easy rides are under 30mi/48km in average distance and 1600ft/500m in average elevation
Moderate rides are over the Easy rating but under 50mi/80km and 2460ft/750m
Difficult rides are as over the Moderate rating but under 75mi/120km and 3280/1000m
Anything over the Difficult rating

NOTE: This is not a strict guideline. There could be rides that have a day or two where the average elevation or distance exceeds the values given above. These anomalies should be outlined in the ride description. It is recommended that you read it carefully.

About People Cycling

People Cycling is a recently launched cycling club, which you can join for free, and is led by volunteer ride leaders. We will be offering tours in the United States and overseas. Our tours are made up of a small group of participants (typically 20-30 or so) who want to ride 30 to 55 miles a day over a one or two week period in interesting regions of the world.

Our ride leaders are volunteers and do not financially profit on tours they lead. They are also given broad discretion on how to lead their tours, and we consider them our greatest asset.

People Cycling tours are operated at cost or at lower cost (as negotiated by our ride leaders) than individuals can obtain on commercial tours. Within the cost of a tour, there is a nominal fee to support club operations and provide tools to ride leaders to manage their rides.

A lifetime membership in People Cycling is absolutely FREE, so please join us and become one of us – we the people, cycling together.
