June 25, Cooperstown, New York – Riders in the CanAm Veterans’ Challenge take a well-deserved day of rest today in Cooperstown, an east-central New York community of nearly 1,900 residents. Located along the Susquehanna River, Cooperstown is best-known as the home for the popular National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum.
With overcast skies and a strong chance for afternoon thundershowers, it is a good day for the team to relax and enjoy the sights of this historic village established in 1786. Celebrating its’ 75th anniversary this year, the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum is likely destination. Riders may also visit other attractions and businesses, including the historic downtown.
Tomorrow is the start of three long days of riding, with an 82 mile ride to Binghamton. Friday is the longest daily ride of this year’s CanAm Veterans’ Challenge, a 90 mile ride to Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. Saturday will be a little shorter, with a 75 mile ride to Pottsville, along the Schuylkill River.
With today’s day of rest, here are a few images from the last few days of riding, offered by several photographers.
