I live in Rochester NY and have been riding a good bit over the past year. I just got a new bike and I'm thinking about doing a leisurely credit card tour from Rochester to Buffalo and back along the Canal Trail. I shouldn't have any trouble doing about 25 miles a day, resulting in a round-trip of about 8 days. Like I said, leisurely.
This will be my first attempt at touring, and if anything goes horribly wrong there are people in Rochester I can call. The trip would likely be the first week of June. If not then, then probably not until some time in the fall.
Anyway, I was wondering if anyone has any personal experience with where to stay or not to stay along the route?
For that matter, are there any places I should specifically seek out to see or eat at, or specifically avoid?
