Routes / Buffalo to Erie
« on: February 01, 2020, 07:24:40 am »
Has any one done the Underground Railroad route in this area?  It looks like the south shore of L Erie would be fun, I'm wondering about getting out of Buffalo.  I plan to start from either Buffalo Airport, or Niagara Falls Airport.  The latter looks a little nicer.  The grand plan is to link up with the Pittsburgh spur of the UGRR, then GAP and C&O, and train back to Vermont.
Thanks in advance

Plan for this Summer, probably second half of July. 
Start in Albany, take the Erie Canal Trail to Buffalo, then Rte 5 along the lake to Erie, PA.  From there, the Pittsburgh spur of the Underground Railroad to Pittsburgh.  Then, the GAP and C&O to DC.  Then Amtrak to NYC, visit a couple of friends, and back to Albany by bike or train depending on mood and time constraints.
Comments and advice welcome, especially about bike friendly places to stay in PGH and NYC.  I think stealth camping in Central Park is out of the question.
Thanks in advance

Currently, I am planning for the Summer, if it ever gets here.  Does anyone know about bikes as luggage on Amtrak from NY Penn Station and Albany?
Thanks in advance

Gear Talk / Charging

My dynamo hub will charge a couple of AA batteries which can replenish the GPS.  My phone, however, won't charge below about 11mph. It beeps plaintively below that speed.  Does any one have experience with charging a power pack to then charge the phone?
Thanks in advance

Any advice on a good route from B to P?
Then I could link the Erie Canal to the GAP and the C&O
Like camping
Thanks in advance
