BIKE & BLUES — Niagara Falls Shoreline Trail and Festival — 9/14/19

Thank you Richard for leading this annual outing. It was a beautiful day, lots of sun with a steady wind coming off the river. The group met at the LaSalle Waterfront Park, followed the trail along the river to Niagara Falls State Park. We couldn’t believe the beauty of the rough and choppy water, the rapids, and the blue sky.

One group road faster and wasn’t deterred by the wind and continued on through detours and construction to Whirlpool State Park, while the slower group toured around Goat Island and walked with the pedestrian to view the rapids around Three Sisters Islands. Everyone enjoyed the biking at their own pace.

The Blues Festival was rocking, the food was delicious. After about an hour at the festival, we made our way back to the cars. Great ADK friends, great exercise, fun music and the wonder of the Falls made for a memorable outing.
