Overview

The classic guidebook to a cyclist's paradise.
New York State's Finger Lakes region is indeed a paradise for recreational cyclists. In addition to the lakes themselve—sclosely grouped, deep, cool "fingers" among the hills—cyclists will find waterfalls and gorges, wineries and museums, cities and farms all connected by an extensive network of well-maintained roads. Mark Roth and Sally Walters' collection of tours has long been a trusted companion of cyclists in the Finger Lakes region. Now the members of the Thursday Night Men's Club (TNMC)—a club devoted to biking and outdoor recreation in the Finger Lakes—have revisited and revised each scenic tour. Backroad Bicycling in the Finger Lakes Region includes clear mile-by-mile directions, detailed maps (with cues), and notes on the history and culture of this unique region.
