Erie Canal Bike Tour Visit in Clyde

The Galen Historical Society opened the Brick Church Museum for the annual Erie Canal Bike tour on Tuesday July 11th,  2017.  We offered the riders a chance to see some of our local history, along with the opportunity to enjoy the air conditioning and bathroom.  Many local businesses and service organizations gave them a warm welcome and assistance. There was even a free lunch at the Clyde Methodist Church. There were over 750 riders ranging in age from 3 to 84 years old. Many riders were from New York State, some were from Canada, and a few were from around the world. We enjoyed visiting with them, and hope to see them again next year.
