This is the response i got from "Parks & Trails NY" when I asked if the trail would be fixed in time for the annual ride: "We contacted the NYS Canal Corporation on your behalf and this is the information they provided us with:" Trail Notice: Embankment Work Underway! Due to ongoing construction work, trail conditions are poor between Middleport in Niagara County, through Orleans County to Spencerport in Monroe County. This work will be ongoing through the end of June. Please use caution in this section or choose an alternate route, and see our map for more information. Additionally, the trail is closed between Fayette Street and Sweden Walker Road in Brockport for construction activity, and localized closures of other stretches of the trail may occur as needed to facilitate the ongoing construction route. Please proceed with caution and seek alternate routes where possible. The work is expected to be complete and the trail restored to like-new conditions in time for the Cycle the Erie Canal tour from July 6 to July 14.

I have do doubt the ride will go on. The wording "restored to like-new conditions" has me more that a bit worried. Just from what I saw east of Hulberton this spring, with no equipment remaining on site.

the areas from Medina to brockport were outstanding and 'just like-new' IMO
