Labor Day Cycling Weekend in the Berkshires

Trip dates: Friday, August 30, 2019 5:00 PM to Monday, September 2, 2019 3:00 PM

Join us for 25-50+ mile led road rides over scenic, hilly country roads on both sides of the scenic Taconic Range along NY-Mass 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, 3 breakfasts, 2 happy hours & dinners Saturday & Sunday (meals fit for a foodie!). See "Cost" section below for more information. For more trip details or 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 Memorial Day and Columbus Day weekends (posted as "Spring Cycling in the Berkshires" and "Fall Cycling in the Berkshires"). If this weekend does not work in your schedule, please check out these other dates.
