Parks & Trails New York’s 17th annual Cycle the Erie Canal tour

If you’re a cyclist who wants to get out of Dodge for a few days this summer, don’t forget that there is an awesome group trek in July called Cycle the Erie Canal. The cycling adventure takes riders across New York State along the scenic Erie Canal, leaving a memorable impression upon all participants who get to see the historic canal and its surroundings up close and personal.


Buffalonians are especially fortunate when it comes to this trek. That’s because cyclists depart from Buffalo (Nichols School) as they head out on the 8-day, 400-mile bike tour. At the end of the tour there is a shuttle in Albany that takes riders back to the starting line in Buffalo (an new feature this year).

For those who can’t afford to take an entire week off, there are options that allow cyclists to join up with the group. Choose from a weekend excursion, or sign up for half the tour. There are even new 4-day options – from Buffalo to Syracuse and Syracuse to Albany.

Get more information on this spectacular ride – click here. Or visit this Facebook page. All ages and abilities are welcome to ride.
