There has never been a better time to think about an Erie Canal vacation!
Registration is now open for Parks & Trails New York’s 17th annual Cycle the Erie Canal tour, an unparalleled opportunity to bike across New York State and take in the rich history of a legendary canal that helped transform America.
The 2015 tour kicks off in Buffalo on July 12 and arrives in Albany on July 19. Here’s what’s new!
4-Day Options: If you can’t take off a full week, consider joining us for half the tour! With new 4-day options from Buffalo to Syracuse and Syracuse to Albany, you’re halfway to becoming an Erie Canalway Trail End-to-Ender! Weekend options are also available.
New Return Shuttle: Riders from Buffalo, Pittsburgh, Toronto, and points west will be happy to hear of a first-ever return shuttle from Albany to Buffalo at the end of the ride. Less driving means more time to discover the Erie Canal, and there is so much to discover!
Erie Canal Trailblazers: Interested in cycling the whole tour for only $100? Become a Cycle the Erie Canal Trailblazer and fundraise to help PTNY Close the Gaps in the Erie Canalway Trail. Registration is only $100 and includes a free Cycle the Erie Canal jersey and guidebook and special recognition on the tour. Click here to learn more.
