7 Responses to “Bike Rochester: Genesee Valley Greenway, Lehigh Valley Trail Loop”

  1. Ryan,

    Thanks so much for your Bike Rochester article including the Genesee Valley Greenway and for all the photos you included. I am with the Friends of the Genesee Valley Greenway and we appreciate the great exposure you are providing for the GVG, the Lehigh Trail, and other Rochester area trails. Let us know if you would like to lead a bike ride event next year that includes the GVG.

  2. Ryan Green says:

    Joan,

    You’re very welcome! You guys have an amazing website- I found it immensely helpful. Lead a bike event with the FOGVG?! Wow, that would be an honor! At the very least, I would like to join in one of your rides next year. Thanks for your kind words!

  3. Hi Ryan,

    This photographic sequence is a truly outstanding piece of work. It is rare to find such a gem with such helpful and careful detail on a blog. Glad to see one of the most highly esteemed leaders in the Friends of the Genesee Valley Greenway noticed, because this merits some wider circulation and recognition. I am sure our friends in the Rochester Cycling Alliance and many others in your city will appreciate the labor you invested in this expert testimony to the virtues of active transportation infrastructure. A truly commendable accomplishment.

    Fantastic Photo Tour Ryan,

    I enjoyed your photos and dialogue tremendously. The route is part of the larger Triple Divide Trail which will eventually stretch from Rochester to Williamsport. It is wonderful route which we hope to connect to our friends in Pennsylvania with in the future. Keep up the fantastic work.

    Scott

  5. Joseph Lust says:

    Great photos! I was on the U of R cross country team and we ran these routes all the time. Never made it to Rochester Junction, so I’ll have to pass this along to the current team to run that leg.

    In 2008 we ran the outbound leg all the way to Cuba. It’s quite a hike and rather crazy near Sonyea where you have to climb down canyon walls for lack of bridges. That said, the canal prism is visible nearly end to end. You’ll also need a machete with you as trail is 100% overgrown in some places, but you’ll only need to get wet twice crossing the geneses.

    I only wish we’d documented it like you do here. Perhaps you can do it some day. It is probably 95% bikeable. You’d probably get a big kick out of the locks between Olean and Portageville.

  6. Ryan Green says:

    Oops, haven’t checked back here in a while. Thanks for the awesome comments! I was unsure if this would be a good series to do, but Mike was encouraging me the whole way. It gave me motivation to get out there explore these routes myself.

    Allen:
    I am gratefully humbled by your comment! I definitely would enjoy this being circulated. I just read up on the Genesee River Wilds, and that’s a commendable project your group has! I wish you the best.

    Scott:
    Thank you! I didn’t know about that trail to and through Pennsylvania until you and Allen mentioned it- It looks like a fantastic idea!

    Joseph
    Those sound like some pretty intense yet peaceful runs. I used to do XC, myself. That southern part sounds really interesting- I’ll keep that in my plans! Thank you!

  7. Donna DeLeo says:

    I’ve enjoyed riding on the Greenway for years, and absolutely love the descriptive narrative and the artistic pictures you included. Thank you so much for taking the time to write your story.
