Bicycling on the Battlefield

If bicycle riding to historic battlefield sites and witnessing historic battle reenactments interest you, then listen up. This Saturday, June 11th, American Heritage Bicycle Tours is offering a FREE bike tour and a FREE reenactment event at the Gelston Castle Estate in the beautiful Mohawk Valley. A very limited number of participants will be welcome to join us on a SAG supported bike tour in Utica New York, 90 miles west of Albany, for a casual ride along the legendary Erie Canal to the Oriskany Battlefield State Historic Site where “one of the bloodiest battles of the American Revolution was fought” (Wikipedia) in 1777. Activities are planned. Upon returning to our vehicles, and a short drive to the Gelston Castle Estate, a genuine reenactment will be held, and if you’ve never witnessed a battle reenactment you’re in for an amazing surprise.

Go online and check out the “events” link. This place is located high on a ridge top with views of the Mohawk Valley that are nothing short of stunning. Contact John at  518.225.4209  or for location, directions and other details such as camping options, food options,etc. Confirmation by Friday evening at 6 pm please.
