Fast America Ride - East

Summary

For the cyclist who cannot take 33 days off, but still wants to experience the Fast America Ride, try our Fast America Ride - East. The third and final section of Fast America Ride travels 1310 miles in 12 cycling days. Enjoy the rolling farmland of the Midwest and tackle the mountains of New England along the way from Springfield IL to Amesbury MA.

Details

Fast America Ride - East heads out of Illinois and into the great state of Indiana, through the town of Knightstown where the movie Hoosiers was filmed. If you have time, you can stand on the basketball court where Hickory’s home games were shot. Next, rural Ohio awaits and the terrain will pick up and roll a little more before a short hop through the far northwestern corner of Pennsylvania along Lake Erie, the largest body of water the ride has seen since the Pacific. The final push rolls across upper New York State providing scenic landscape and rural roads north of the Finger Lakes region. From there the ride skirts the Erie Canal to Syracuse and Amsterdam and the final few days will include the Mohawk Pass, part of the Appalachian Mountain Range into Vermont. Vermont and New Hampshire are like roller coasters, but the terrain will settle down closer to the Atlantic Ocean. Our final few miles will see us ride to Salisbury Beach and dip our front wheel in the Atlantic.
