3rd Annual Tour the Towpath
Tour the Towpath is a recreational supported bike ride along the world famous Erie Canal! Tour the Towpath 2017 begins in Rome, NY and follows the Old Erie Canal Towpath trail for 36 miles to DeWitt, NY with an option to bike to the Inner Harbor in Syracuse (additional 6 miles). There are lots of organized and spontaneous things to discover along the way!
Tour the Towpath is a family friendly event and open to cyclists of all abilities. Riders will receive a map and guide to the many attractions, museums, restaurants, shops, and historic sites that they can explore in the communities that the route encounters on the way from Rome to Syracuse.
Overnight camping accommodations for Saturday (September 23) night are provided in the canal side village of Canastota including live music, swimming, and showers.
Tour the Towpath also offers a 1 day ride option for those looking for a shorter experience: 1 day riders will join 2 days riders Sunday morning (September 24) in Canastota and all participants will continue the route together.
