Welcome to The Inn at Cooperstown and the Big Ring Bicycle Clubhouse. If you enjoy bicycling, we have a treat for you! We’re avid cyclists and renovated an old cobbler shoe shop into an amazing bicycle clubhouse for our guests.
As cool as the clubhouse is (and it’s pretty cool), it’s the area around Cooperstown that’s the real jewel for any bicyclist. Bring your bike and be inspired by the beautiful scenery and peaceful rural roads of upstate New York. Beginning cyclists to the most experienced will find some of the best riding in the northeast. From rolling hills and pastoral fields to epic climbs and exhilarating descents, the Cooperstown area has it all!
Over the years we have logged many cycling miles in and around Cooperstown so we know the rural roads very well. Whether you are cycling alone or part of a group, with enough notice, we can map out an appropriate route or plan fully supported day or multi-day rides for your group.
The Big Ring Bicycle Clubhouse is available to any bicycling guest staying at the inn. The clubhouse has been cleverly outfitted with all the amenities a cyclist could want and then some. Besides secure storage for your cherished steed, there are plenty of bicycle hooks as well as cubbies for your gear. Take advantage of the maintenance stand, tools, tire pump, and cleaning supplies to keep your bike looking good and ready to ride. While in the clubhouse, crank up some tunes on the full surround sound stereo system or watch a cycling video on the on the flat screen television. Need a beverage for the ride? Grab a water or sport drink from the stocked refrigerator. After the ride, relax at the pub table or on the stone patio with a well-earned beer from our local Belgium brewery, Brewery Ommegang (must be 21 or older to enjoy the beer).
Bicycling in Cooperstown starts in the spring and continues through the summer and fall. Interested in a little competition? In early spring in nearby Garrettsville, the Central New York Cycling Club (CNYCC) hosts the annual Check Your Legs Road Race. The Cooperstown Triathlon happens on Memorial Day weekend. In the fall Cooperstown is home to the Drops-to-Hops Bicycle Race which starts/ends at Brewery Ommegang. So what are you waiting for? Load up those bicycles and come to Cooperstown!
