Cycle the Erie Canal 2016 is in the books. Thank you to the 650 participants from 38 states who made the journey with us and the hundreds of volunteers and community members who added so much to the week.

We’re now accepting applications for our Fall 2016 Arthur V. Savage Internship program. Apply by July 30 for the opportunity to gain first-hand experience shaping policies, organizing grassroots constituents and assisting with the stewardship of New York’s parks, trails and other outdoor spaces.
Trail and active transportation advocates have a one-time opportunity to obtain funding for their trail and bicycle/pedestrian projects using expired grant money. NYS has more than $200 million available in these expired earmarks, including$18 million for bicycle and pedestrian projects.
