The Hudson Valley Bike Tour - Gotham Bike Tours
Hudson Valley's magnificent countryside has been a tranquil source of source of inspiration to those who have visited it for hundreds of years. The Hudson Valley is well known and we have teamed up with a number of companies to take you from your farms to your tables during this one. Remaining amount until 17.00 on Wednesday before each trip.
Included in this itinerary are dinner on Saturday and Sunday and breakfast on Sunday and Monday. Each meal contains as much Hudson Valley cooking as possible. Reduced round trips are available for $30. It is a special equipment transport service, so you don't have to take everything by bike on the trains.
You can pick up your equipment in time and take it with you on the trip. You have two possibilities for transporting gears. Return your equipment to our Midtown or White Plains office during normal office opening times the weeks before the trip. The equipment tax is part of the trip and does not include any additional costs.
Your equipment can be picked up in the weeks after the trip. Collection and shipment from your home. On Thursday afternoons prior to the trip we can come to your home and collect your equipment for $40. It is" per stop", i.e. persons living in the same house or a group of acquaintances who want to make a pick-up stop can afford to do so.
Included in the trip is the return of equipment on the last date of the group. The collection of the transmission is subjected to certain site limitations and availabilities. For example, we cannot make pick-ups in New Jersey or Staten Island and there must be at least 2 bus stations so that we can drive the aisle.
All of the available accessories give you full control over your bag before you leave on Saturday. From Wassaic Metro North Stations, right at the south end of the Harlem Valley Rail Track. It is a nice car-free route that will take you through the fruitful farmhouses and historical cities of the Harlem Valley.
However, you have to drive on a calm country lane along parts of this route, as there are loopholes in the route. Arrived in Wassaic, we pick you up at the railway terminal and give you a small "Go-Bag" with power bars, fruits and fresh air to get you on your way.
Railway starts directly at the railway yard, so you are on your way! In Millerton there is a beautiful farmers' square where you can help us choose the dishes for our evening meal. Railway ends at Taconic State Park in Copake Falls, where the campsite will be built.
As you will probably have plenty of free before supper, you will have the chance to discover much of what this is like. If you want to take extra cycling tours, the streets around the reserve are perfect for cycling. After the collapse of the warehouse and the stowage of the equipment in the vans, the drive west to the Hudson River begins on side streets with very little rain.
You will have a longer and more demanding trip than the 1st but you will also have all afternoon to take your own in. So, you'll spend more uphill than down. Crossing the Hudson River on Kingston-Rhinecliff Bridge also gives you the chance to discover the historical Kingston before turning the last few kilometres southward and meandering along Roundout Creek on your way to Rosendale.
Nowadays it is better known as a small art congregation with an interesting major road in a precipitous Wallkill River basin. There is usually plenty of opportunities for performing in person every night somewhere in Rosendale, as well as at the Rail Trail Café near our campsite. Now that we have packed, we drive on a huge railroad rack....which is now the Wallkill valley rail trail.
When you have photographed the wonderful valleys below you, you drive on this wonderful way to the souths. Bikers who use racing bicycles are given an alternative itinerary on the street if they do not want to take their bicycles with them on this itinerary. On this relatively slippery but not asphalt track, hybrids and MTBs will have no problemm.
Because of the shortened distance of the third leg, we have enough round-trip traveling. For those who want the quickest way, there is the amazing "Walkway over the Hudson", an empty railway car that has been transformed into a path leading to Poughkeepsie (the end point of the long drive).
For those who wish to make a longer trip, it is possible to visit a still, vineyards and taste the wines. Go on a trip and taste Tuthilltown Spiritits, New York's first whiskey still since the days of the prohibitions and maker of Hudson Whiskey. Whichever you buy, we will collect it and wear it for you!
Eat your meal or try even more Hudson Valley produce, the Gardiner Liquid Mercantile for a nationwide sampling of beers, wines, liquors and cider. Here again: Whatever you buy, we will collect it! Using these possibilities, you can drive to Poughkeepsie and the Walkway Over the Hudson or continue to Beacon and cross the Newburgh-Beacon Bridge.
If you cannot complete the trip, we can also take you from the last winetasting to the railway/trainstation. Once the trip is over, we'll bring everything you can't take home (including a glass of good quality vine you buy) back to our office where you can collect it later in the day.
Once you have registered for our pick-up services, we will return your equipment to your home on the same date. It is clear that you and Laura are primarily for the passion for cycling and sharing this passion with others.
