Drops To Hops

cooperstown, ny

 The 2022 Drops To Hops race is cancelled. Normally Drops has well over 150 registered by this time and as of yesterday we have only 21. The other biggest reason is that the race would not be safe to host because of only 4 volunteers (and employees) that have confirmed to help. Instead of waiting closer to race day I have decided to cancel now, mostly because of the distance some of the racers are traveling. Thank you all for the support of registering and I will look at the 2023 season and decide the races fate.

               A bike race/ride that starts and ends at a brewery :-) who could ask for anything more. Fall leaves and secondary roads with beautiful views make this event the perfect end-of-season ride. Competitive and fun with some up hills and down hills will be waiting on course. For the 21 and over racers Ommegang provides your first pint on the house and they also provide all the awards. The venue and setting is second to none so register today.
Drops To Hops

     We are pleased to announce proceeds from this years race will support the SSPCA

            The “A” race is about 43 miles that is geared towards the “racer” with rolling hills, flats and a nice climb to separate the field. The race will start  at 10:00am


           The “B” race/ride is 25 miles with rolling hills and flats that most abilities can complete and have. The race will 10:15


   The Early October race/ride is perfect for fall foliage viewing as you ride.

Overall male/female in each race, also age group awards will be given. Did I mention that the awards are beer if over 21 ;-)  

BOTH DIVISIONS:   As in the past at the last sweeping right hand corner there will be cones set up for cars to stay left and bikes to stay right. You will have a lane for two bikes side by side until you get to the corner then you will have the entire right hand lane for the straight away. You must finish in the right hand land as the other will be for vehicle traffic. Please do not cool down back towards the direction of the finish line its to congested with finishers and vehicles. Viewing racers coming in is great but please stay on the grass/field area and off your bike.

We Welcome And Thank NYCM INSURANCE as our 2022 Title Sponsor
