In partnership with the Fitness Inclusion Network at SUNY Upstate’s Golisano Center for Special Needs, the Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor has announced the launch of a Virtual 1st Mile Challenge for people with mobility challenges.
The free program offers a series of 15 Peloton-style adaptive cycling videos filmed on the Erie Canalway Trail and Onondaga Creekwalk in Onondaga County. Each video features a one-mile trail segment, giving participants the opportunity to complete one mile or to achieve a 15-mile goal by completing each of the 15 video segments.
Participants will be encouraged to move from indoors to the trail itself in the summer months, a major milestone for continuing fitness and experiencing the outdoors along the canal. The Virtual 1st Mile Challenge is an important part of ensuring that recreational experiences along the canal are welcoming, sought after, and accessible to people of all abilities.
