Route 97 New York (Hawk nest)
Hancock, NY to New Hope, PA
A four day tour with a total of 215 miles of riding
The Delaware River is a cycling gem. Many rivers that have figured prominently in the history and commerce of a region have become over developed commercially, residentially and complete with highway systems that are not cyclist friendly. However the Delaware has retained its unique personality and has escaped the ravages of progress. Source of the Delaware explores a three state area rich in scenic beauty, historical and cultural attraction, and diverse cycling terrain and landscape. We have discovered some of the prettiest country roads you will ever see and created an opportunity to experience a region as only a cyclist can.
East and west branches of the Delaware join in Hancock, NY
