Erie Canal: July 4th- 200th anniversary of the beginning of construction.

On July 4, 1817, construction began on the Erie Canal.  Now, in 2017, we are celebrating the 200th anniversary of that amazing engineering feat.  In 2015, we biked the entire Erie Canalway, from Buffalo to Albany, 366 miles.  And we published our experiences in our book titled, “Bicycling the Erie Canalway Trail, Tips and advice for your adventure(s)”.  To learn more about the Erie Canal and our travels along it, go to the blog on website, under “Erie Canal Trek 2015” ( and hopefully you can share in our adventures and plan for your own.
