  1. I did the Empire State Ride and it was the most amazing experience of my life. The people were incredible and it was such a well run event. The ferry into downtown Manhattan on day one and ending at Niagara Falls.

    I’ve never ridden with a better group of people in my entire life.

    My wife and I are travelling from Australia to the USA in June and we will be in the Boston – New York City area in late June. Are there any suitable bike trips we could go on from the 23rd June to 30th June? We are looking for a ride for about 5 days and we would like to end up near New York City. We will need bikes, accommodation and luggare transport, but are otherwise self sufficient. Can you offer any suggestions? Regards, Ross

    1. Welcome to the US, Ross! This website has an exhaustive list of rides during that period. Good luck!
