Tips and Info – Finger Lakes Cycling Club

The members of the club collectively have an incredible trove of wisdom and knowledge about bicycles and bicycling. We post some of this trove in response to recurring questions. If you have unanswered questions or unmet needs, please contact FLCC board members and we’ll try to be helpful.

Another resource in Ithaca is the website of Bike Ithaca — advice on commuting, riding in the cold, community issues to do with cycling, etc.
