Exploring the hidden gems of the Finger Lakes Region &
Central New York: Rolling Thru the Finger Lakes #3
Note from Christian, Tour Director: Our Rolling Thru The Finger Lakes tours were one of the most popular tours in our company’s history. Why? Because they have endless beauty and wonderful, relaxed riding. But this region is so vast, and there is so much more to see and ride. For years I’ve wanted to offer a new “RTFL” tour, bringing riders to areas in the Finger Lakes we didn’t see before. Now’s your chance. We’re headed to a new Finger Lakes region, staying in a great, fun (and reasonably priced) hotel, and our destinations are typical Rolling Thru America jaw-droppers.
Don’t miss it – it will sell out quickly.
Package Price: $549/per person
Lodging: $537 (3 night stay on Mon, Tues, Wed)
*Room rate includes use of Fitness Center, Indoor/Outdoor Pool & Hot Tub and Parking. Spa Services, Waterpark, Arcade, Ropes Course & Mountain Coaster available at an additional cost.
**Incidentals & Chambermaid Gratuity are not included.
“WOW!” That is what you will be saying the moment you begin riding as you explore some of the best riding roads in New York. Imagine wide-open scenic country roads, beautiful rolling hillside vineyards and many, many aerial lake views as you ride across pool-table smooth roads.
You’ll enjoy the beauty of the Finger Lakes and Central New York along smooth and winding hand-crafted routes. The menus on this tour are one of a kind. You’ll enjoy the delicious, autumnal flavors of the region at our fantastic dining stops. This is one tour you won’t want to miss!
Monday- Welcome to Rolling Thru the Finger Lakes #3
Your host hotel is unlike anywhere we have stayed in the past for Rolling Thru America. Your home away from home for three nights is a wonderful mountain lodge with a terrific array of on-site activities to enjoy in your free time. The grand lodge has a rolling mountain view and offers a full spa, indoor water park, mountain coaster, fitness center and more! This hotel offers all of the luxuries and amenities of a grand hotel paired with a homey feel with full kitchens in each room. It’s the perfect place to unwind after a great day of riding!
When you check-in, your RTA representative will be there to facilitate the process and make sure everything goes smoothly. You’ll receive your RTFL3 package, with credentials, route maps (in case you decide to ride on your own), and your special tour goodies.
Then, join us for a savory dinner with a cocktail and a menu including Chicken Marsala w/ Mixed Mushrooms & Marsala Wine Sauce, Roasted Pork Loin w/ Warm Maple Apple Salsa, Vegetable Baked Ziti, Green Salad, Saffron Wild Rice, Green Beans, Caramelized NY Cheesecake and more.
Tuesday: Waterfalls, Lakeside Riding & Lunch with a View
Start your morning off with a delicious and plentiful breakfast at the host hotel. After that, you will head out for your first day of riding on some of the most scenic roads in the region. You will travel lakeside for much of the day, taking in the very best of the Finger Lakes. Along the way, you will stop to see a plunging 215-foot waterfall that is three stories taller than Niagara Falls and has carved a remarkable 400-foot gorge into the rock bed.
Following your morning stop, you will wind your way through the scenic mountains and valleys to a delightful lunch overlooking Canandaigua Lake. Savor the flavors of the Finger Lakes with a seasonally inspired, bountiful menu. Lunch includes Chicken Bruschetta, Roasted Beef Sirloin w/ Brandied Peppercorn Sauce, Harvest Greens w/ Pear, Walnut, Dried Cranberry, Pumpkin Seed & Maple Vinaigrette, Garlic Infused Yukon Gold Potatoes, Tarragon Roasted Carrots, Cannoli Cake and more.
Your afternoon ride will guide you through beautiful Amish country. Keep your eyes open as you pass by working Amish farms and maybe even a horse-drawn carriage or two.
Following a full day of riding, you will get to rest on your night off to prepare for your second day of riding. Enjoy the plentiful amenities and restaurant in the hotel or head out to one of the nearby towns for a bite to eat.
Wednesday: Silos, Valleys & Rolling Pastures
Your second day of riding will bring you through the smooth, meandering, rural roads of Central New York, riding by rolling pastures and sprawling farms as you make your way through a hidden gem of CNY: Madison County. Along the way, you’ll stop and see a breathtaking 167-foot waterfall created over 400 million years ago by a sliding glacier – you won’t want to forget your camera for this stop!
You will conclude your morning ride at a beautiful historic inn built in 1804 at the heart of a quaint village. Here you will enjoy an impeccable lunch including Apple Stuffed Pork Loin, Red Wine Braised Boneless Beef Short Ribs, Caesar Salad, Seasonal Vegetable, and Chefs Starch, and Dutch Apple Pie to top off a great feast.
After lunch, you will ride along picturesque vistas with vast views of this beautiful area to cap off another great tour. These country roads are a motorcyclist’s paradise– smooth, winding and not a stoplight for miles. You will be blown away by the exquisite riding and scenery as you make your way back to the host hotel.
Upon your return, you’ll have some time to relax and think back on your past two days. You will then join us for a cocktail and a scrumptious dinner including Stuffed Chicken w/ Gouda, Arugula and Prosciutto topped w/ Riesling Sauce, Baked Haddock Piccata w/ Lemon Caper Butter Sauce, Portobello Mushroom Stack & Linguini, Caesar Salad, Rosemary Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Vegetable Medley, Strawberry Shortcake and more!
Thursday – See you next year!
Join us Thursday morning for a delicious farewell breakfast including Fresh Seasonal Fruit, Yogurt w/ Dried Cranberries & Granola, Pastries, Bagels, Muffins, Buttermilk Pancakes, Cinnamon Vanilla Battered French Toast, Applewood Smoked Bacon, Breakfast Sausage, Scrambled Eggs, Homefries, Orange, Cranberry & Apple Juice, Coffee, Tea, & Water. You’ll say goodbye to new and old friends, see photos from the trip, and will likely begin counting down until your next Rolling Thru America tour!
