We will be taking our boat from the Great Lakes to the east coast via the Erie Canal and will have bikes aboard. It would be nice to make several different day trips to get off the boat for a bit and get some exercise. Any suggestions for good places to stop and leave the boat for the day and get a nice ride in? Will be traveling in September of 23.

Amsterdam.

Dock at Riverlink park. Ride over the Overlook bridge, one block more and you are on the trail. East or West is a nice ride.

Get the Map.

Brockport, so you can go to Barber's.

You can use Google maps, look at each town, and see if it looks like there's good stuff there. Looking back, I don't think that there are any wrong places to stop.

Pittsford has a nice waterfront. Little Falls was kind of cool.

Keep in mind the Main Street bridge is closed in Brockport for cars. Dock at the south area between the two lift bridges for Barbers. You won't need a bike.
