Bicyclists (and Birds) Bring Business
2016 Bicyclists Bring Business Events Scheduled for Wayne County
PTNY and the NYS Canal Corporation will be bringing Bicyclists Bring Business to Wayne County in Western New York in October, with an evening presentation in Savannah on October 25, and everyone's favorite bike-a-round the next day in Newark.
For the first time in 2016, the evening roundtable portion of Bicyclists Bring Business will be offered as part of a larger program, a nature-based tourism summit at the Montezuma Audubon Center. The Canal Corridor offers a wide range of recreational and cultural opportunities, and this year we're happy to discuss how both bicyclists (and birds) bring business to Canalway Trail communities. Of course, Wayne County is the perfect venue for this year's event with its completion of new trail sections in recent years, and a working group meeting regularly to close existing trail gaps.
As a follow up to the roundtable, we invite you to join us for a community Bike-a-Round hosted by a local trail advocacy group, Trailworks, at 10:00 AM, Wednesday, October 26 in the Village of Newark. Bring your bike and meet us in the parking lot of the Newark Garden Hotel (125 N. Main Street, Newark), alongside the Erie Canalway Trail. We’ll ride through Newark and on several miles of the Erie Canalway Trail to experience Wayne County and the connections to nearby communities from the perspective of a cycling tourist. Afterward, we will discuss the results of our Bike-a-Round discovery tour during lunch at a local restaurant.

Join us in October to hear more about what's happening in Wayne County and across the Canalway Trail, and to get involved!
