Cooperstown and the Leatherstocking Country has some of the best cycling
in the East. It is unspoiled, rural, "Norman Rockwell" Americana!

As Bill Strickland proclaimed in his review of  Cooperstown in the November
1994 issue of Bicycling magazine: The road riding here rivals any eastern
touring hotspot. The area is less touristy and developed than, say, Lancaster, Pennsylvania. And while the mountains may be only half as high as Vermont's,
there's plenty of challenging climbing and New England hospitality.

Cooperstown is a quaint village of 2500 inhabitants nestled at the southern shore of nine-mile-long
Lake Otsego. The scenery is spectacular. The backroads are traffic free. And the bicycling is superb.

Beyond the village of Cooperstown, Leatherstocking Country beckons with attractions too numerous
to mention. Bike to waterfalls, gorges, nature trails and State Parks. Bike to Howe Caverns, the Fly
Creek Cider Mill, historic Cherry Valley, the Mohawk River and the Erie Barge Canal. Bike to
Sharon's Bath Houses, Jordanville's Russian Orthodox Monastery, Gilbertsville's polo fields, and
Oneonta's National Soccer Hall of Fame.
