Allegheny Mountains Bike Tour

Posted by Doug Shidell, December 27th , 2016.

Bicycle touring in the Allegheny Mountains isn’t for the faint of heart. The climbs, and descents, are steep, the mountains are high and there aren’t a lot of flat stretches to catch your breath and recover. But for those who are up for the challenge, the rewards more than match the challenges. Bikeverywhere’s newest mobile map, Allegheny Mountains Bike Tour, lays out a route from Buffalo, New York to Yorktown, Virginia that follows the spine of the Allegheny Mountains through upstate New York, western Pennsylvania, Western Maryland, West Virginia and Virginia. The route follows mountain streams, climbs peaks, explores valleys and passes through dozens of small towns. Check out Allegheny Mountains Bike Tour Narrative, a first person account of riding this route in the fall of 2016.

Niagara Falls Bike Tour

Posted by Doug Shidell, December 27th , 2016.

Niagara Falls is one of the natural wonders of the world. Bicyclists can access both the American and Canadian Falls quickly by bike, but they don’t have to limit themselves to viewing just the falls. Bike paths along both the Canadian and American sides of the Niagara River allow bicyclists to follow the entire 30 plus miles of the river between Lake Ontario and Lake Huron. Another bike trail connects the two lakes by following the Welland Canals where riders can get intimate views of giant Lake Freighters as they pass through the locks and canals that bypass Niagara Falls. There are also road loops through vineyards, smaller trails and urban areas such as Buffalo, NY to explore. Bikeverywhere now offers the mobile Niagara Falls Bike Trails  for riders who want to see Niagara Falls and all of the scenic trails and byways that the Niagara Falls Area offers.
