We’ll pedal by early 1800s historic commercial port cities, explore canal locks, and ride 100 miles of the Erie Canalway, a National Heritage Corridor. This tour spends 4 days on the mostly limestone trails of the towpath of the Erie Canal, the most commercially enduring and historically significant canalway in the U.S.
We will meet in Lockport where the ride begins! The first day takes you along the Erie Canal from Lockport, NY towards Buffalo. At the end of the ride, we’ll return to Lockport where you will get your first glimpse of the “Flight of 5” from the canal! The next 3 days will be spent riding the Canal towpath to Newark, NY. Enjoy pedaling along this car-free trail and piece of US history.
