Our Story

custom cycling tours near New York City who we are

Fantom Cycling Tours is owned and operated by NYC cycling ambassador and influencer Tom Johnson (@velo.tom). Tom has been leading rides in and around NYC for years. By riding thousands of miles each year Tom has been able to find so many amazing cycling routes and roads through Hudson Valley's beautiful towns and terrain. People are always amazed to see how good the riding is just outside NYC. There are spectacular roads and views along with rides that can be as challenging as you would like. 

We know when you are traveling to a new city or area it can be intimidating to plan and build routes without local knowledge and support so leave it to us, the local experts. We know all the great roads, scenic views, and cafe stops in the area. Have you ever wanted to see what it feels like to ride like a pro? We offer fully supported rides and can help with mechanicals, flat tires, or anything else you may need on the ride. We will have your routes and rest spots pre-planned, mid-ride fueling, and support at every turn. We offer a pro-like riding experience with local knowledge of the area. 

A few words from Tom:
"The greater NYC area is my home so it is my pleasure to bring these routes and rides to cyclists from out of town or locals looking to explore off-the-beaten paths or traditional routes."

We offer single-day cycling tours around the NYC area or pre-planned multi-day trips anywhere around the world. All tours are custom tailored to the riding level and preferences of the rider. Each ride is guided and fully supported. Route options are pre-planned through beautiful roads outside NYC in the Hudson River Valley with plenty of photo opportunities so that you can go home with memories and souvenirs from your days on the bike.
