Explore the Empire State by bike!
From the natural beauty of Niagara Falls to village main streets, alongside the Erie Canal, through rural communities, forests, and farmlands into the awe-inspiring skyscrapers of Manhattan. The CCNS Niagara Falls to NYC Epic will be a bucket list week.
Our traverse across the Empire State returns for its beautiful October start date in 2023. We are looking forward to once again kicking off the Fall foliage season in the Northeast with this epic ride.
We hesitate to call this a “bike packing” trip. While we fully respect everyone who wants to live out of a tent between multi-hour rides, we will go a bit more lux here. “Good bed, good meals, good riding,” we say.
Join us for this fully supported week as we tackle the 565-mile route and build lasting teammates.
All you have to do is show up, ready to ride.
Let us take care of everything else.
ALL-INCLUSIVE FEE: $3575
This trip is designed for intermediate to experienced cyclists who are interested in a fully supported, epic week of riding.
As soon as possible! We arrange for accommodations, meals, and transport weeks in advance. Do not wait until the last minute, or it may not be possible to join us.
It is a fairly rolling to flat route, so we expect a 16-18mph avg each day over the six days of riding.
Most people surprise themselves and ride more miles than they usually do or ever have. We encourage people to challenge themselves but not push themselves so far that they can not complete the adventure or get injured. The goal of this trip is to ride and enjoy the journey, not to ride hard and drop people. CCNS coaches ride with the group to ensure that all riders are looked after.
The answer is different for everyone! CCNS coaches are available to discuss your training and how best to approach the build-up to the ride. Reach out and contact us HERE.
We will plan to ride rain or shine. Only lightning or dangerous storm conditions will force us to reconsider. Otherwise, it’s 100% up to you if you’d like to hold off or cut the ride short due to weather conditions. Please remember that we can only offer a partial refund due to some fixed costs.
Dinners are hosted as a group at a pre-determined restaurant or the host hotel every evening. We encourage riders to come together and enjoy the company of each other, as well as the company of coaches and staff.
We will have an assortment of ride fuel from PowerBar, Clif, and Untapped for the ride food.
Please let us know of your dietary restrictions in advance. Riders can opt to bring their breakfast foods, as well as any specific vegan on-the-bike fueling options they desire.
The trip balance is due by September 1st, 2023. There is no refund of deposits or fees (credits can be issued for further trips or events).
$3,575 for the week. A deposit paid on Bikereg reserves your spot. The remainder is due by September 1st, 2023.
