Cycling the Erie Canal (July 13-20) and Cycling the Hudson Valley (July 29-August 3) are scenic, multi-day bike tours for riders of all abilities.
Imagine a week away from the daily grind, bicycling New York State with old friends and new. Join Parks & Trails New York this summer for Cycling the Erie Canal and Cycling the Hudson Valley, and leave your worries behind!
Ride through one of America’s most historic river valleys on Cycling the Hudson Valley, a 6-day, 200-mile tour from Hudson to New York City. With a new route for the 10th anniversary, this ride features three rail trails, Kingston’s Stockade District, and Historic Huguenot Street in the vibrant village of New Paltz, as well as old favorites Olana, the Culinary Institute of America, and West Point. Plus, ride through Manhattan on the traffic-free Hudson River Trail, with views of the Hudson all the way. A beautiful view of the Statue of Liberty beckons at the end of the ride.
Spend your week on the trail on Cycling the Erie Canal, an 8 day-400 mile tour across New York State. More than three-fourths of the route from Buffalo to Albany is off-road on the traffic-free Erie Canalway Trail! Jump on a boat ride through several locks, have an evening on the town in Syracuse’s Armory Square, and camp overnight at a Revolutionary fort, but don’t forget to stop for ice cream along the way.
Remember, our bike tours are fully-supported, so you don’t have to carry your gear each day and there is help if you have a flat tire. Someone can even set up a tent for you!
