A colleague of mine wants to the do the Parks and Trails New York supported Erie Canal Bike tour this upcoming July. He (and maybe we), are looking for the easiest way to get back to Buffalo, NY which is the starting point from Albany, NY where it ends. I know there is Amtrak service between the two cities but didn't know how difficult bike transport is on that line or if there were any specific stipulations, and/or how difficult is it to get to the starting point or ending point from those two Amtrak stations. Would you have any other suggestions or ideas or would it just be easier to rent a car one way back to Buffalo since I know of no other shuttle services available? As always, thank you for your input.
