Introducing a new date for 2023. The Highlander is moving back 1 week to join forces with the Bristol Mountain Oktoberfest celebration. This will bring even more value to the riders with music, games, cool food/drink, and opportunity for sky rides and more. Climbing Strong since 2000, the Highlander Cycle Tour is an annual charity bicycle tour in parts of New York’s famous Finger Lakes Wine Country. Our 24th anniversary ride will again deliver some amazing scenic terrain in and among the Canandaigua Lake region. Continuing our Tour de France style of keeping it fresh each year, we’ll visit terrain you may not have ridden in years or ever. With amazing roads, gravel/dirt, and single-track options available, there’s something for everyone. Course options will range in length from 30 to 100 miles, and degrees of difficulty from family friendly ride to incredible climbing some years exceeding 10,000′! For sure the Highlander will treat the rider to some of the finest and most exhilirating riding in North America. Come celebrate with us as we bring back the passion of cycling’s heart!
