HBC Finger Lakes Trip

HBC Finger Lakes Trip - June 15 to 18, 2023 -  REGISTRATION IS CLOSED!

There are 97 people registered to participate in the 2023 HBC Finger Lakes Trip, with 91 staying on campus in the O’Dell’s Townhouses at Hobart-William Smith Colleges in Geneva, NY and 6 people staying off-campus. This includes 23 first time Finger Lakes participants. HBC members registered for this trip come from Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Ohio and various parts of PA, including York, Lancaster, Pittsburgh, and the Harrisburg area.  That’s one of many things that make this trip truly memorable.

If you prefer, you can still make your own off-campus lodging arrangements. There are several hotels and campgrounds in the area. Off campus participants can join us for rides, socials and breakfasts (Friday, Sat. & Sunday) for a $25 fee for 3 breakfasts, but will still need to register in advance so we can keep the college informed about the number of breakfast participants.

We still need more volunteer ride leaders for Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.  Please contact Phyllis ( if you are willing to lead a ride. We will share your responses with participants by June 1, and will provide updates later as more information becomes available.  All volunteer led ride plans are weather dependent, and may be changed by the leader as needed at any time.

Marilyn Chastek will lead an Orientation Ride at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday (6/15), which is highly recommended, especially for new participants, followed by a short Welcome Meeting in the Barn starting at 8 pm for introductions and discussion of breakfast arrangements (Fri, Sat, & Sun), social plans for Friday and Saturday, and volunteer led ride options.

We will use a white board to display ride options during social time and will review at breakfast each morning (Fri., Sat. and Sunday). Ride with GPS (RWGPS) cue sheets and maps for routes in the Finger Lakes area are available to download and/or print at home from the HBC RWGPS Routes Library. The Route Summary provides a short description of Finger Lakes routes that can be found online in the HBC RWGPS Route Library (Filter by Tag: Finger Lakes). 

More details are available on the HBC website ( Special Events page for the Finger Lakes.  Please contact Susan Tussey with any questions about registration at or 814-386-8141.

We ask that participants let us know if your arrival plans change, so we can keep the college informed. Possible refunds for any cancellations will be considered and processed after June 20.

In 2023, Phyllis Zitzer is chairing the trip and Susan Tussey is the registrar. Please contact Susan Tussey with questions about registration. 814-386-8141 or or for all other general information, contact Phyllis Zitzer or 717-379-3054.
