Hundreds of bicyclists en route from Buffalo to Albany stopped in Lockport today to check out some area attractions.

Bicyclists came from 36 states and as far away as Australia. 
The 17th Annual "Cycling the Erie Canal" bike tour, which has more than 600 cyclists making the 400-mile bicycling tour from Buffalo to Albany, had scheduled stops at the Erie Canal Discovery Center, the Lockport Cave and Underground Boat Ride, and Lockport Locks & Erie Canal Cruises before heading east towards Middleport this afternoon where they had a rest stop planned at Middleport Municipal Park.

The eight-day recreational bicycling tour highlights "the beauty, history, culture and recreational appeal of the Canal system and the Canalway Trail, popular tourism destinations in New York State," according to the New York State Canal Corp.

Roughly two-thirds of the 400-mile bicycle tour takes place on the completed portion of the Canalway Trail. When complete, the New York State Canalway Trail will span more than 500 miles and connect numerous cities, towns and villages along the Erie, Cayuga-Seneca, Oswego and Champlain Canals, making it one of the longest multi-use recreational trails in the country.
