    That would be so cool if it was a hike & bike trail that you could camp along.

    My two favorite things in life are libraries and bicycles. They both move people forward without wasting anything.

    Lucky for me, I work at a library and bike to work.

    It already is. See: http://www.nyscanals.gov/exvac/trail/campsites.html

    Unfortunately, the trail isn't complete across New York state, but every year it gets closer. The plan is to have it be a continuous trail from Buffalo to Albany in the next few years.

    I've ridden it from Rochester to Macedon, and I ride the section from Rochester to Pittsford daily as part of my commute.
