Cycle-CNY Group Rides
Come ride with us! We lead group rides all over the Southern Tier of New York.
Cycle-CNY hosts Tuesday evening group rides during most of the season, typically starting in late-May and lasting through October….and occasionally into the winter. Check our our rides calendar below and click on an event to get details about the ride. Or for up to date group ride details and meeting locations, join our email list by sending a blank email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Rides typically begin at 6pm, and move a little earlier as Fall daylight shortens. We try to accommodate riders of all skill levels and a variety of regional trail locations. Group rides are a great way to learn different trail systems and to meet other local riders. These rides are self-supported…bring your own bike, helmet, water, tools, etc. Stay safe and have fun!
Occasionally rides get canceled due to the weather, so please check this webpage before heading out!

Our Ride Leaders
I ridden bikes all over the world, but always love to show local riders around our Southern Tier trails. I've supported Cycle-CNY as a chapter officer and board member for many years. I've been heavily involved in women's bike skills clinics and love to teach new riders how to have fun!
I’m a native of the Finger Lakes region and a long-time Southern Tier resident. Our local forests offer loads of trail riding opportunities and I love exploring them on my mountain bike. I support Cycle-CNY as a group ride leader, bike-access advocate, and steward for the Shindagin Hollow trails. Always a big fan of long rides on forest trails…all year round!
I like to mountain bike with my dogs and have been riding for about 15 years. My pace is about 6 mph, and a typical ride for me is about 7-9 miles with a mix of flowy trails with some challenging stuff thrown in. I love how riding on trails makes it easy to be present and decompress from the day. I am comfortable leading people on trail rides and enjoy sharing this great sport with new riders. I live in Ithaca and mostly ride locally, but during the summer I like to travel to other places to bike, like Kingdom Trails in VT and Raystown Lake, PA.
