The Amish 250 handcycle camp is a 250 mile camp starting on 8/7 and ends 8/13. The camp travels the roads of Western NY at the upper north west corner where the foot hills of the Alleghenies begin to influence topography.  The camp officially kicks off on August 7th with a road race in Allegheny State Park Red House district. Rooms have been blocked at the Holiday Inn Express in Findley Lake NY. Anyone needing a roommate can contact Ken Bestine at 814-323-3026. We have room for 20 at the camp. We have an “A” group and “B” group. They travel slightly different routes that end at approximately the same time. The rides are no drop rides where groups stay together working on drafting and pace line riding. A refueling table will be set up directly after the completion of each training ride. All rides are van supported.
