Great Finger Lakes Bicycle Tour?

Monday, March 30th, 2009

I am contemplating registering for the 2009 Great Finger Lakes Bicycle Tour. I don’t do a lot of organized rides, but this one looks great. A short ride Friday evening, and lots of options for Saturday and Sunday ranging from 21 to 91 miles, including some new mixed-terrain options. I think these use rail-trails, so the terrain should be relatively tame during those portions. The rest of the ride looks to be very hilly, but I have not found any routes or elevation profiles online. The ride also features several catered meals, and camping is provided. Home base is the very beautiful Watkins Glen State Park, which is home to an impressive 19 waterfalls. A far cry from a self-supported tour, but it sounds fantastic to me.

Has anyone ridden this ride? Is anyone interested in riding it?

Here are some photos I found from last year.
