Niagara Gazette — He added that the bike trail will be getting some maintenance soon. The riverside path is a city project constructed on state land, cared for by the city.
Now that the Seneca Niagara Casino and Hotel has agreed to pay the city the money it was owed, there will be some cash available for the trail, and Dyster plans on making the small improvements that riders have come to expect on the bike paths.
That's good news for Smalko who is concerned about the length of grass surrounding parts of the trail. "Compared to other bike paths around the area, it could definitely use a facelift, just to keep it looking good," he said.
Regardless, tourists sometimes don't notice the little things in the face of the grandeur of the falls. A family who rented four of Smalko's bikes on Friday enjoyed the whole experience.
"We thought it was great," said Stephanie Cinchy of Ocean, N.J., who, with her parents and sister, rode the rental bikes to the falls. "We rode all the way down to the state park. It was beautiful. It's just the perfect distance to ride."IF YOU GO WHAT: Preview the Falls Bicycle Rental WHERE: 6720 Buffalo Ave. FOR MORE INFORMATION: Call 245-0787 or visit "Preview the Falls Bicycle Rental" on Facebook
