500 riders, 400 miles, 300 photos, 200 communities: Cycling the Erie Canal

There is no better way to see  the history and beautiful scenery New York has to offer than traveling by bike. This year PTNY hosted more than 500  bicyclists on the 16th annual Cycling the Erie Canal bike tour July 13-20. Representatives from the New York State Canal Corporation, Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor, New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, Erie Canal Museum in Syracuse, and many other agencies and groups working to promote, interpret and support this amazing resource also joined the riders for part of the eight-day event.

A big thanks to everyone who rode along and came out to welcome the cyclists to their community. We hope to see you all on the trail with us next year!
