Biking the Canal

Low Bridge - everyone down, Low bridge for were coming to a Town . . .

Scouts drove Sat. AM to the Port of Buffalo . . . . then over 2 days rode/cycled their way back to the Port of Pittsford. 103 miles, to many bridges to count. Lots of sore legs! Way to go boys!
Green Lock is at Lockport NY
Erie Canal is another wonder that we locally take for granted, Cobblestone houses fall in that category as well but save that for another post. It is truly amazing to think they dug this "ditch" as Governor Clinton referred to it as by hand. Can you imagine anyone today doing that much manual work?
