ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - There’s more than one way to travel the Erie Canal and it doesn’t have to be by boat.

A new website, https://www.CycletheErieCanal.com, is all about cycling the mostly flat 360-mile trail that runs alongside the famous waterway in upstate New York between Albany and Buffalo.

The website includes rider reviews, an interactive map, places to stay and suggestions for things to do and see along the way, from the Glimmerglass Opera in Cooperstown to the Susan B. Anthony House in Rochester.

The canal was built to transport goods by boat in the early 1800s.

Several hundred bicyclists recently completed the eight-day Cycle the Erie Canal bike tour from Buffalo to Albany.
