Erie Canal bike tour

Bri and I are officially signing up for the Erie Canal bike tour in upstate New York in mid-July. This will be our big "summer vacation" for 2010. We both find a lot of joy in going somewhere we've never been, then riding a bike with a group of like-minded explorers through the countryside. At night we check out whichever town we stop in. This particular tour is an eight-day riding tour, but we're going to do just the first six and then head off for the final weekend to do our own thing.

Riding the North Carolina Mountains to Coast bike tour would be a lot of fun as well, but this one falls in late Sep-early Oct, which is not good timing with the various races. Maybe one day.

I'm sure you'll have a blast - my 8-year-old son and I have been doing the tour independently. We went from Buffalo to Rochester in September, and are planning on Rochester to Herkimer this summer. It's a *GREAT* route.
