Great Finger Lakes Bicycle Tour, June 10-12, 2016

I participated in the 36th Annual Great Finger Lakes Bicycle Tour June 10-12, 2016. Leaving Pennington Friday morning, I arrived at the Watkins Glen State Park Hidden Valley Group Camp in the early afternoon and set up my camp.

After checking in and hanging out at the all purpose room, I waited for Karen (of the FANY ride) to arrive. Together we rode the trike on the Sugar Hill Fire Tower loop. Due to time constraints, we skipped Tower Hill Road and the actual fire tower. Back at camp, we had dinner, followed by several presentations, one of which was Karen talking about the FANY ride (which is why we didn’t want to be late for dinner!).

Saturday, I rode my upright bike on the 67 mile loop (with enough extra miles to get 70!) and was back on the trike with Karen for the remote start 44 mile loop around Keuka Lake on Sunday. From Hammondsport, I headed to Saratoga Springs to visit my son, daughter and family friends, all meeting there in the first part of the next week.

GPS tracks of the three loops are on Fire Tower Loop, Keuka Overlook Metric Century, Keuka Loop.
