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 Buffalo where the ride begins! The first day takes you along the Erie Canal from Buffalo to Lockport, NY where you will get your first glimpse of the flight of 5 before taking an evening jaunt to Niagara Falls. From there we will spend the next 3 days following the Canal to Newark NY. Spend all 4 days pedaling along this car-free trail and piece of US history.

Day 1: Pedal from Buffalo to Lockport – getting your first glimpse of the “Flight of Five,” a series of 10 impressive locks that work together to transport boats up and over the escarpment. Then head out for a view of Niagara Falls.

Day 2: Continue your trek along the Erie Canalway Trail from Lockport, NY to Hulberton, NY. Tonight you are in for a real treat at the Genesee Country Inn

Day 3: Enjoy breakfast at the Genesee Country Inn before pedaling another 35 miles on the canalway trail. Head to Pittsford where you’ll have your choice of dining options. Don’t miss out on the ice-cream from the Pittsford Farm Dairy located near the hotel.

Day 4: Roll through the town of Fairport and into your final destination at Newark, NY, completing 100 miles of Erie Canalway Trail!
