Cycle the Valley
Cycle the Valley
May 18 - 20, 2018
Dust off your bike and join us for a 2-day ride through the Hudson Valley.
Meet fellow GOATs while cycling along rolling hills and riverside vistas. Whether you are getting your summer cycling started or training for a future ride, let's hit the road! (We'll also enjoy local wines and cheese to celebrate and unwind from the day's work!)
This moderately-priced adventure provides GOATs the maximum fun while not breaking the bank. It includes hotel, breakfasts, a prepaid dinner, during-ride lunches, snacks, water, experienced guides and a support vehicle to support you with everything you need along the way.

For this trip guests are responsible for their own transportation to and from Fishkill. For those coming from NYC, we recommend the Metro North train. The train is super easy, we'll provide you all the details on how to travel with your bike on the train as the trip gets closer. If you decide to car-pool, we will facilitate car shares to the best of our ability. If you are having difficulties arranging a ride / figuring out the train, please contact us for assistance.
Should you require a car bike rack or separate transport for your bike, please contact us as we may be able to assist or make arrangements for you.
Guests should bring their own bikes that are in full working order. GOAT can only perform minor roadside fixes (flat tires, derailings, etc). If we are unable to repair your bike quickly, our support vehicle will connect you with the local bike repair shop. If you need to rent a bike, we can help coordinate that with a bike shop local in Fishkill for an additional charge. Please contact us to make arrangements.
This trip abides by our standard cancellation policy. If you cancel fourteen (14) days, or more before the trip, the refundable portion of your payment will be returned. If you cancel thirteen (13) days or less before the trip you will forfeit the entire paid amount. If full payment is not received fourteen (14) days before the trip we will assume you have voluntarily cancelled your registration and forfeit any payments. For your protection, we strongly recommend our guests purchase trip cancellation insurance.
