Erie Canal bicycle ride promotes tourism

More than 500 bike riders set off on the Erie Canalway Trail from Buffalo this morning, on their way to Albany this week for the annual Cycling the Erie Canal Tour.


The group Parks & Trails New York organizes the ride each year to promote the canal, state parks and Upstate New York tourism. They'll stop in Medina for the night and come through Rochester Monday. There are cyclists from 35 states and several foreign countries as well.
