The bike tour operator who promotes freedom on two wheels, Great Freedom Adventures (, announces last-minute openings in two of its popular tour destinations.

The tour is timed to take advantage of post-summer-season quiet, farm-fresh produce and sun-drenched fields of pumpkins. Guests walk a wild flower-filled nature preserve during what is typically the peak of the monarch butterfly migration to Mexico.

The second tour is the Hudson Valley National Heritage Area Bike Trip exploring the region’s wealth of natural beauty, history, art and architecture. This tour occurs under a canopy of fall foliage through sweetly scented vineyards and orchards.

Guests may arrive a day early to take advantage of the finale of the annual Arts Walk in Hudson, NY on October 7th, featuring exceptional visual artists, performing artists, musicians, dancers and poets.
