Cyclists ask Cuomo to 'Close the gaps'
ALBANY - Hundreds of postcards dropped off at the Capital Friday, asking Governor Andrew Cuomo to close the gaps that remain on the Erie Canal way trail.
The Trailway extends 360 miles across New York State.
Each year, cyclists get access to more and more of the trail but 83 miles still needs to be finished.
Members of Parks and Trails New York launched the "closing the gaps" campaign in 2010 and have been asking the governor to get a little bit more of the trail complete each year.
The project coordinator says the end is in sight.
When the trail is complete it will be the longest trail of its kind in the nation and a world-class destination for cyclists.
