Anyone Toured the Erie Canal?
My stoker and I are planning a shake-down tour of our tandem before we do the Canal du Medi when we retire. We've limited ourselves to day trips and one overnighter on the Bike Train to Niagara Falls. We thought we'd do the Erie Canal in July (we're teachers).
We are from Toronto so need some advice on where to start for the prettiest parts, where to stay (bed and breakfasts or inns rather than motels) and things to avoid or not miss.
Has anyone at this forum done any part of the canal?
