This run starts out in Easton, Pa and ends in New Hope, Pa. Plan for an entire day with this run if you plan to stop at the canal locks and also New Hope for eats and spectacular shopping (and a ride on an old train!). Easton starting point features 3 Rivers Landing Park where the canal begins. Very picturesque with bridges, canal lock, train overpasses and 2 parks. Continuing on the ride brings many twists and turns that follows the canal and Delaware River. Several locks along the way provides a glimpse into the history of the canal as well as many photo opportunities. Between canal locks the ride has sweeping turns, long straights, scenic views of the river and many places to eat, drink and rest.

Ending in New Hope, you can stop and shop till you drop. The town is littered with motorcycles, upscale shopping and restaurants.

This is a GREAT ride, but PLEASE be careful on the turns, some are very sharp and have blind spots. There have been many accidents involving motorcyclists crossing into the path of cars as well as cars cutting corners into motorcycles! Take your time, go slow and be safe.
