Lockport to Pittsford ride

I plan on biking from Lockport to Pittsford in June. Are their any closures or detours I should be aware of? I plan on leaving at 6:00AM. Also, are their any certain supplies I should bring with me?

It's a piece of cake! You'll enjoy the ride. No closures that I am aware of, however, I will admit that I find following the trail through Genesee Valley Park in Rochester to be a bit confusing. I don't think I've done it right (or the same) yet! LOL Best part is getting to Pittsford and enjoying a treat at Pittsford Dairy -- just off the trail. Yum! [Obviously take some water and your cell phone. There are plenty of places to re-fill along the way. I generally have sun protection and a small spray bottle of insect repellant -- just in case.]

I made the ride this past Saturday. Great ride except when I arrived in Rochester. Not very good signage. FYI, I ran out of water has I entered Greece. I had one water bottle and two 20oz bottles. I would have been nice to have two more of the 20 oz. I might ride it again sometime in August. Who knows, I might do it next Saturday 6/12. Took some good pics on the ride has well.

There's a water fountain at Spencerport near the gazebo on the east side. There may be one between the two lift bridges at Brockport. Not certain on this. There's a gas station, store on Long Pond Rd, where you cross the canal by bridge. Just a few tenths of a mile north on Long Pond.
