My wife and I would like to do a couple of days on the Erie canal trail around the July 4th weekend. We would like to find a nice inn or b&b that we can base from and ride 10 miles out and return one day, and the same the next in the other direction. Ideally, there should be a nice outdoor cafe at the turn around point. Do any of you locals know any portion of the trail that comes close to meeting these criteria?
I'll be looking for some more miles while my wife relaxes with her crossword puzzels after the ride. I'm trying to get her to work her daily mileage upwards for our tour in France in October where she will have to be up for 35 to 40 kilometers a day, and I have to wean her off the electic assist bike that she usually rides at the same time.
Any reccomendations welcome.
