Cycling the Erie Canal – Summer 2010 – Prologue

Less than 3 weeks to go!  We’re getting ready to leave.

My daughter and I have been training since May to ride along the Erie canal from Buffalo to Albany, NY.  We’ve never undertaken a long bike trip before, so wish us luck!

The trip will take us about 300+ miles along the old tow-paths that were used to pull barges along the canal.  We will leave from Buffalo on/about July 22 and spend about 8 days journeying eastward.

To prepare for this ride, we’ve been training on a tandem bike.  If you’ve never tried one before, I highly recommend it.  We’ve had a lot of fun and good daddy/daughter time.

So, if you’d like, feel free to subscribe to our posts.  I will be putting together some modest posts along the trail – no computer, so whatever I can type up with my trusty iPhone 🙂  I hope to update each evening with a couple of pictures and thoughts.

Peace!

– Matt
