Cycle the Erie Canal 2018
July 8 - July 15$795
More than 650 cyclists will leave their cars behind in Buffalo on July 8 to pedal along the historic Erie Canalway Trail to Albany as part of Parks & Trails New York’s 20th annual Cycle the Erie Canal bike tour.
The 400-mile journey along the legendary Erie Canal will end July 15. Along the way, cyclists will enjoy some of the finest scenery, most interesting history, and unparalleled trail cycling in the northeastern United States.
Covering between 40 and 60 miles per day, cyclists traveled along the Erie Canalway Trail, which is now 80 percent complete (20 percent still remains on-road) and will, by 2020, be completed as part of the statewide 750-mile Empire State Trail.
