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.

Ginger, Tucker & Fiddle
Ginger and Tucker (and that's Fiddle in the Flyer) are traveling coast-to-coast on their way to Cape Cod. Fiddle takes turns riding and running. He's a little wet in the photo from a cooling plunge in the canal.
Alan and Rachel
Alan met his daughter Rachel from Boston in Buffalo to ride the Erie Canalway Trail to Syracuse. They stayed overnight at a hotel in Brighton south of Rochester and then rode the Genesee Riverway Trail along the east side of the Genesee River to downtown Rochester and a BBQ place.
Kelly & Richard
According to Kelly and Richard's blog, ShiftingGears, they are cycling, "Oregon to Maine and then down to mile zero in the Florida Keys" this summer. They claimed our Trail Ambassador was the first one they've come across on their entire trip.
