We're posting details about this year's route, so now's the time to sign-up. We have riders coming from Cape Cod to California, and from Kentucky to Canada, (and even Scotland too, but it doesn't fit well into that "K" sound thing we had going on). But there's still room for you.
Ride with a great group of bikers who are serious about having fun. Come earn your bragging rights ... we usually climb 20,000' in the week. You'll certainly impress your friends back home, and maybe even yourself, too! Now's the time to sign up for 2013. FANY bikes 500 miles Across New York and is a camping bike tour. But there is a hotel option too! SAG support, gear transfer and a week's worth of fun for like minded bikers. Sorry! whiners need not apply.
One of many welcoming stores along the FANY route.
About FANY: We ride 500 challenging miles simply because it's fun, and because NY has amazing scenery to explore. To us, it's all about the route and the new biking friends we make by the end of the week.We consider meeting and supporting the friendly people of upstate NY to be another chance to explore and make new friends. Besides, it's the polite thing to do if we're riding through their town. So FANY doesn't have rest stops; we encourage stopping at the Mom & Pop's along the route to support those who are trying to make a living in the tiny villages we ride through.Don't worry, we let them know you're coming through, and we let you know their exact mileage. Stopping where and when you want is part of the adventure and independent spirit of bikers on The Great Big FANY Ride; hope it's not a dealbreaker for you.
Finally - we aren't a pledge ride, but if you'd like to make a voluntary donation to The Double H Ranch, that'd be just great! They do amazing things and will magically turn your cash into an unforgettable week for kids. The 2012 ride donated over $6200 to the Double H Ranch. YEAH!In 2013 FANY celebrates the short life well lived by one of our Charter Members, Annalise Kjolhede (below). Brilliant and brave, beautiful and fun, she will remain an inspiration to all who were lucky enough to have met her even briefly. This year's FANY donation to The Double H Ranch will be in Annalise's honor, to purchase a sit ski for their winter program, so that others may ski passionately as she did.
It's a Double H jersey!
