NEW TOUR MEETING LOCATION: THE WATCHTOWER

This year, Buffalo Bike Tours will be moving from Canalside to the Watchtower, located at 201 South Park Avenue. The building, part of the old DL&W Terminal property, was intended as an interpretative and wayfinding project, where tours would meet and depart from. Soon after completion 8 years ago, however, the project stalled and was never completed.

Over the coming year, Buffalo Bike Tours will be working with Rick Smith of Silo City, architect Brad Wales, Friends of the Edward Cotter, NFTA, and Seneca Casino to make improvements to the site and establish a permanent location for its operations and as a center for tours and bikes in Buffalo.
