It was organized by the New York Parks and Conservation Association (NYPCA), and sponsored by the New York State Canal Corporation and the Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor.
According to NYPCA, the goals of this annual bike tour are "to promote the Canalway Trail and bicycle tourism" and "to draw attention to the many scenic and historic areas surrounding the Erie Canal." NYPCA claims that, "when complete, the 524-mile Canalway Trail will be the longest intra-state multi-use trail system in the nation." For me, the trip offered eight enjoyable days on my bike surrounded by fascinating history and unmatched scenery.
