The third edition of the ride took place at Artwater Estate Vineyards in Burdett Saturday and Sunday.
This is the first time the Finger Lakes hosted the event, which highlights the region's agricultural community, allowing cyclists to ride through the area and enjoy locally sourced meals.
"The Finger Lakes really has all the elements that we're looking for, it's a really strong tourism region, people think of the wine and they want to come here," said Tyler Wren, the event director and founder of Wrenegade Sports.
Organizers said the event is a great way to boost the economy and tourism. Around 400 cyclists signed up for the ride and traveled from 25 different states.
The event raised over $400,000 in the Finger Lakes region.
Upcoming rides will be held in Vermont, PA Dutch, Maine and Berkshires. To learn more, visit http://www.farmforkfondo.com/
