2017 Spring Tour, 138 Miles, 3 States, 5 Days

718 Cyclery's Tour Season opens with our Spring Tour of the Hudson Valley from April 26th to 30th, 2017. We will visit 3 states in 5 days, while on our tour of the Hudson Valley's quaint towns and quiet roads.  The group will travel unsupported (meaning, you will carry your food and shelter), averaging about 30 miles/day.  This relaxed pace is great for beginners, or those who are not in so much of a hurry.  This trip will be led by 2 experienced 718 Tour Guides.

Rider cost will be what 718's costs are (insurance, staffing, etc), divided by the number of riders (assume between $100-$200, fee due 3/1/17).  We don't profit off of these adventures, as they serve to introduce many riders to our shop. Riders will be responsible for all food and transportation costs.
