Cycle through wine country in the Finger Lakes.

An increasing number of New Yorkers are making the five-hour trek upstate to the Finger Lakes for an active weekend of cycling from vineyard to vineyard. While there are but a handful of notable wines coming out of the region — a dry riesling here and peppery cabernet franc there — the 45-mile y-shaped circuit around Keuka Lake is worth your time for the bucolic scenery and history — as seen in America's first bonded winery, Pleasant Valley, a must-stop in the village of Hammondsport.

What's new: For $12 you can purchase a Keuka Passport, which gets you a free standard wine tasting at seven member wineries.
