I am hoping to return for more fun. My cycling is on hold for the time being due to being placed on Coumadin for hopefully a short-term and off by early June. (See my last two blogs for more info...)

I don't think I dare hit the road on my bike while taking an anti-coagulant...just don't think I want to risk it.

Don, thanks for posting. I'm going to check out DHs calendar and see if I could do this. Are you going? I would love to meet some fellow Sparkers. I've met a lot of them from the running teams at various races and they've all been wonderful. I'm sure that will hold true of the biking teams. Many of us keep in touch through SparkPeople and Facebook.

That sounds like a fabulous weekend! Staying in dorms is a great perk, too. It would be a 17 hour plus drive for us, but we might could make it. Thanks for posting.

I'm passing along a real gem of an opportunity for a weekend of cycling joy here in upstate New York! I went last year for the first time and had a blast. A terrific perk are the top-notch music students at the university who put on a WONDERFUL performance during the weekend. My ride to Hamilton and at the end of the weekend was an added bonus, too!

There are rides of varying degrees of distance and challenge.

Although it refers to this as a "camp" we stay at one of the college dorms with beds, showers and bathrooms provided.

The costs are extremely reasonable:

Housing - $21 per one camper x # of nights
multiply number of campers at end
Circle which night(s) Thurs, Fri, Sat
Insurance - $2 per one camper
Breakfast - $5.50 per one camper per meal
Circle which meals Thurs, Fri, Sat.
No breakfast on Sunday.
Dinner - $10 per camper

Here are the details if anyone would like to jump on this deal:

Bicycle Camp
July 11 – 14, 20113


Mark your calendar for Mid-Hudson Bicycle Club’s fifteenth annual Bicycle Camp weekend. It’s the most inexpensive bicyclist nearby mini-vacation in Central New York . We’re staying in different dormitories this year at Colgate University and choosing what meal we want to eat at Colgate’s beautiful campus dining hall. You choose what nights and what meals you want. If you arrive Thursday, you can have a $10 dinner or explore the village of Hamilton .

While it’s mostly bicycling focused there are other things going on. Bicycle Camp is an opportunity to enjoy rural bicycling of any distance you choose from many cued routes. Most riders will choose a short or long ride from the cue sheets and maps. The bicycling around Hamilton is full of farm roads with little traffic through hills and flat valley roads.

Most campers come from the Mid-Hudson, Mohawk, Southern Tier, Rochester or Orange bicycle clubs. You’ll enjoy meeting fellow bicycling enthusiast, relax in the dormitory lounge or visit the quaint village of Hamilton . We’ll share the campus with young musicians who perform in the evening and sometimes at the dining hall. Colgate’s hill campus overlooks Hamilton about one mile from the village center and is beautiful and has nearby woods foot trails for walking and running. Hamilton always seems to have events happening in the summer. Last year Syracuse Symphony preformed a free concert in Hamilton’s village park right across from our favorite Mexican restaurant. There are lots of restaurants and bars and campers have their own favorites. The internet search for Hamilton , Central New York , Colgate University and Madison County lists ideas of places to eat, activities happening and places to see in July.

Some adventuresome campers arrive via bicycle from their homes near Binghamton and the Hudson Valley
.
We hope you’ll peddle or drive to Bicycle Camp.

Feel free to call or email the organizers. Brian Berry & Geri Muckelbauer, brianberry@earthlink.net or 845-679-3205
