The New York “Historical” Route
[ August 15 – 23, 2021, 9 Days, 8 Nights ]

Starting in New York City, this route travels around the Northeastern part of the USA and visits many of the major historical sites along the path to women’s suffrage. Ride with our staff historian and combine great roads with women’s history for this unique way of experiencing the history of the suffrage movement. This is a 7-day trip and goes through New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland and straight to Washington, D.C. where this group will join in the D.C. experience.

Highlights:

  • Staten Island Museum Visit and Kickoff for Centennial Ride History Tour
  • Visiting Historic Seneca Falls and the Women’s Rights National Historical Park
  • A Special Centennial Ride-exclusive Susan B. Anthony House tour with our Centennial Ride historian
  • Centennial Ride NY Route exclusive: we’ll be escorted into Washington as the first group to arrive
  • And more: this tour will pack in as many special historical visits as possible!

Our Day-to-Day agenda will be published soon*

Self-Guided Registration

Self-Guided Registration: The DIY Pay-As-You-Go Option

If you register as a self-guided rider, then you are completely connected to us yet totally independent: you’ll pay an event fee to participate, then pick and choose what you want to participate in. This way you only pay for what you’re interested in – not the whole shebang. After registration, we’ll send you a form on which you can let us know what nights you’ll be with us and your billing details, and we’ll send your booking details directly to our hotels (thereby saving you having to call all 21-24 hotels). They’ll charge you directly for any deposits and fees and you’re responsible for any changes to your reservations. (Note that because we are in some big cities with lots of events going on the same time as ours you may have to pay a deposit well in advance – our contract with each hotel is different.) We’ve tried our best to negotiate breakfasts to be included in your discounted room rates, but there will be some hotels where we did not (like those $38 breakfast buffets at big-city hotels) so you can make that choice on your own.

Once you’re registered you’ll be able to find your own roommate (if you want one to help reduce costs) in our closed Facebook Group for Centennial Ride riders.

Self-Guided Registration – What’s Included:

  • Event Fee
  • Start City Party
  • Hotel Room Reservations (so you don’t have to call all the nightly hotels)
  • Route Information
  • Information on and access to any and all “free” events we’ve negotiated along the way
  • Any “free” lunches at dealerships or partner venues along the way
  • Any “free” evening happy hours we’ve negotiated for the entire group
  • Daily Briefings (if desired)
  • Route Book
  • Goodie Bag
  • Centennial Ride Keepsake
