The Greater Buffalo/Niagara Area Bicycle Route Guide, which includes a list of seven major bike trails throughout the region, is now available, announced Erie County Legislator Kevin R. Hardwick, R-Tonawanda.


Developed by the Greater Buffalo-Niagara Regional Transportation Council, the guide includes a full-color map of designated routes in Erie and Niagara counties, as well as a detailed map of downtown. It also features a list of bicycle dealers, repair and rental shops, and information about how to “Recycle-A-Bicycle” and receive a tax deductible receipt.


“The Bicycle Route Guide provides a great opportunity for individuals to see some of the most beautiful areas, including the great trails that run along the Niagara River and canal, while bicycling,” said Legislator Hardwick. “Biking directions help our residents to find a convenient and efficient route that makes use of dedicated bike trails.”


Additionally, New York State Bicycle Law guidelines are highlighted in the guide, along with safety tips, rules of the road, how to take a bike on the Metro Rail and multi-use trail information.
