It was another signature day!
The Erie Canal from the Canalway Trail path
Here we are riding on the Canalway Trail path. Pictures are better than words:
That is Jeff on the left. On the right, a boat going through Lock 30. We saw many boats docked in Pittsford.
We passed through many pretty small towns. Fairport, Pittsford, Macedon, Palmyra, Newark, Lyons, Clyde, Tyre, Montezuma, Port Byron, Savannah, and Weedsport to name some of them. For the most part, people take good care of their houses and yards here.
This is the town of Port Byron
Lunch was the $7.29 special at Tully’s. A choice of five sandwiches, fries, and a soft drink or beer. I went with the pulled pork which was pretty good. The beer wasn’t bad either. Especially after a hot humid day on the road. After freshening up at the hotel and attending rap, the day concluded with a trip to Dinosaur Barbecue in downtown Syracuse, followed by some mint chip ice cream from a store near our hotel. All in all, another great memorable day in biking (and eating) paradise. Only five riding days left until it is time to come home. It’s been a great trip. Not over yet. But everyone is already starting to reminisce about the last six weeks.
We've been following roads designated at Bike Route 5 since Niagara Falls. Most roads have wide shoulders or a bike lane.
