I'm a 71 year old survivor of thyroid cancer.
Two years ago I joined 500 people bicycle from Buffalo to Albany in eight days. Along the way we patronized restaurants, discovered villages and historic sites and found places we would return to one day. And I got the exercise I needed to keep my weight down.
That annual ride had brought riders to the Erie Canal corridor for more than a decade.
We could have similar success with a bike trail here. Lets do it.
