The Finger Lakes region is really beautiful. Unfortunately, most people look at NEW YORK and only think of the city...but no, New York is much more. I suggest, if you visit the finger lakes region, get off the main roads and just drive down some of the sprawling, hilly roads. See the area. It is a nice drive between Oswego (on 63) and Bath (basically from Oswego to Bath on I-390), especially in the morning or evening.

Biking is not that big in Hammondsport, but it is fun. There is a place called Bully Hill, a winery and restaurant way up above the lake. For some reason I decided one day to bike up the long, steep hill to it, then turn around and fly (almost literally) back down the hill, trusting in the integrity of my bike NOT to break up on me, hoping I wouldn't get a flat, and most of all, thinking of the minivan close on my heels, waiting to run me over should I fall! Ah, but what a ride, what a rush!
