Do you no longer offer the casual bike shuttles between Syracuse and Utica? Looks like the only options now are multi-day tours.
Please share with your cycling friends!
When do you start booking for Summer 2019?
Another great day with Diane and Ron of Erie Canel Bike Tours! We love wine tasting!
Thanks Diane for a great tour last week on the Leisurely East! We thoroughly enjoyed our time!
Just found your page through a link on the ny.gov homepage -- sounds like a neat business. Do shuttles run every day or just on weekends? Your pages at https://www.gobikeerie.com/schedule and https://www.gobikeerie.com/faq come up blank. Thanks!
Thanks to Diane Kolifrath and Ron Bailey for a great cycling tour!
Looking forward to using #gobikeerie shuttle this summer! What a great service!!

Warm weather, the sun is out and we all want to get out and go for a ride on our bikes. If you are just like the rest of us, it is easy to overdo it on that first day out in Spring - to do too much too quickly can lead to burnout and potential injuries. If you build a base now by riding consistently through the rest of the season you’ll be in much better shape come Summer. Soon, you’ll be ready to ride those longer miles without damaging your body. #cycletheusa #bicycletouring #cyclinglife

Such a great review!

Cycle into a new adventure! With Great American Bike Tours you will have the support of friendly and expert staff as you see some of the greatest scenery and explore the rich history of our country. Here is a testimonial from one of our previous tours: 'buescrf' wrote: "September 2019 Erie Canal Full Tour Buffalo to Albany
I waited a bit so that I could fully process this trip before writing a review. This trip could absolutely not have been any better! Everything was perfect - my bike was top of the line, the support was great, but most of all the company was as good as it gets; starting with Diane and Ron and her sense of humor and leadership. The other riders on the trip were great people and the socializing during the ride and at the end of the day was a huge part of my experience. This was not an easy ride for me - putting together 25-55 mile a day rides for 9 days is not easy, we were all in it together and everyone helped each other with directions and support; the experience, scenery, museums, just everything could not have been better!" https://www.cycletheusa.com/adventures

New for 2022!

Ohio to Erie Trail!

9 Days / 8Nights ~ Aug. 13 – 21 and Sept. 17 – 25

Join us as we cycle The Ohio to Erie Trail which travels 326 miles from the Ohio River in downtown Cincinnati and traverses both rail trails and canal trail as we make our way to the banks of Lake Erie in downtown Cleveland. On this great tour you’ll cycle through gorgeous scenery, pastoral farmlands of Amish Country, enjoy the history of the Ohio & Erie Canal, and charming whistle-stop towns of the Ohio Railroad before reaching the sandy shores of Lake Erie.
Historic Ohio & Erie Canal

Starting in Cleveland, we begin on the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail spending our first few days cycling from the city, to beautiful Cuyahoga Valley National Park taking in the beautiful scenery and enjoying the history of the canal where, from 1827 to 1913, mules pulled canal boats laden with passengers and goods up and down this historic Canal.

Exploring the Ohio & Erie Canal

In addition to gorgeous farmlands, between Dalton and Fredericksburg the bike trail runs through Holmes County which is the second largest Amish community in North America, and for approximately 25 miles the trail runs alongside an Amish buggy path, which creating quite a unique experience for everyone.

Charming Railroad Communities

Connecting with the Heart of Ohio Trail the OTET follows the Cleveland, Akron, Columbus (CC&A) Railroad. This section is representative of the entire trail with a delightful mix of rural towns with charming main streets and grand courthouses, kitschy Americana, riverfronts and rolling valleys.

Grand Finale in Cleveland! Where Rail and Canal Converge

As we make our way through the northern reaches of the OTET, the rail trails deliver us once again to the beautiful tow path passing by historical sites, colorful villages, canal bridges, Fink Truss Bridge, (on the National Register of Historic Places), and Fort Laurens, a pre-Revolutionary War encampment, before we dip our wheels in Lake Erie, ending our incredible journey!
