Tully to Ontario: This route is offered May through November for $5. Starting in Tully this route goes west on NY 80 over Oak Hill and into the Ostico Valley. The route heads north over rolling hills through Skaneateles and onto the flood plains north of the Thruway and Erie Canal. The ride passes farmlands and the small towns of Central New York heading towards the Lake Ontario shore. The contrôle in Fair Haven affords cyclists the opportunity to enjoy the breeze and view at the bay. The return trip home takes a slightly different route but remains flat until just before heading back into Skaneateles. Riders should be sure to stop at Doug's Fish Fry for a tasty peach drink before heading up Route 41 along the lake. Just over halfway along the lake the route turns east and descends back to the Otisco Valley. From here riders climb over the saddle between Vesper Hill and Song Mountain (a popular CNY ski resort). The route finishes by winding around Song Lake.

Jenn's Pick: The first Central NY brevet designed and still my favorite. This route loops through the eastern Fingerlakes passing through Cortland twice, Auburn and Skaneateles. This route has something for everyone, short steep grades, rollers, flats, views and good food along the route.

Greet the Gorges: This ride is a wonderful loop through the eastern Finger Lakes region. Views of the lakes and valleys are showcased here. The north-south runs concentrate the climbing at the turns. Riders will enjoy the ride through Ithaca and have the opportunity to stop at the famous Farmer's Market specializing in organically grown products and have the opportunity to duck their heads into the Moosewood Restaurant of vegetarian fame. Climbing out of Ithaca riders pass the Cornell campus to head into the back roads of Central New York.

Salmon Run: A relatively flat route for the Upstate NY region, this ride starts from Tully and heads slightly south-east to Hamilton, NY - home of Colgate University. Riders leave the quaint town to head north through the Mohawk River Valley up to the Tug Hill Plateau. The Tug Hill is famous for incredible snowfall totals and for the recreation it brings. Riders will loop around the Salmon River Reservoir, so named because of the great local fishing. Heading south riders will hug the Lake Oneida shoreline and enjoy a long but shallow climb from Chittenango for a view of the falls.

Catskills Foothills: The scenery on this 400km route makes up for its hilliness. The route starts in Tully in New York's apply country and heads south east through Cortland County. It then moves briefly though Broome County and into Delaware County to loop around the Cannonsville Reservoir. Heading north it passes through picturesque towns in the foothills of the Catskill Mountains. Just narrowly missing Cooperstown, NY it bends west to head into Madison County, some of the best farmland in the state. It heads back to Tully passing small lakes along the way.
