Erie Canal Bike Adventure
$1,099 AAA Member
Join us in an expedition trip of the Erie Canalway Trail biking 400 miles in 8 days across New York State along the scenic and historic Erie Canal, named a National Heritage Corridor, and enjoy great scenery, interesting history, and unparalleled cycling. You’ll cover 40 to 60 miles per day, about half on asphalt or compact stone dust on completed portions of the Canalway Trail, the rest along public roadways with good shoulders. This is a great tour for riders of all abilities. Most days, the route follows the canal along level ground. There are a few rolling hills and two long, gradual climbs in the Mohawk Valley.
