Biking & Cycling in Cooperstown

Best Biking in New York State

Otsego County is a biking enthusiast's dream location for both road cycling and mountain biking.

For proof that cycling is big here, pedal over to The Inn at Cooperstown, where innkeepers Marc and Sherrie Kingsley created the Big Ring Bicycle Clubhouse. Inside, guests can grab a beer from the fridge, play a cycling film on the flat screen TV, and wrench on bikes before they start pedaling.
