Rider Reviews & Trail Travelers
Each year, thousands of riders pedal a portion of the Erie Canalway Trail. Many take a short trek for daily exercise; others plan a vacation, cycling through the canal's small towns, visiting artisan shops, unique restaurants and quaint inns and B&Bs along the way. History buffs retrace America's longest man-made waterway.
Others cycle the entire trail, fulfilling a dream of crossing the great state of New York on two wheels. For many, it is part of a longer journey across the United States. No matter how many miles you travel, there are always new adventures to discover.

This gentleman "Frank" was riding the Erie Canal Towpath west through the state: "Montana or Bust". He was kind enough to have his photo taken by Chris O'Neil who was out for her bicycle ride too. ~ At Kirkville N.Y.
