ECSHA bike ride postponed until ’21

JOHNSTOWN — To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th amendment, the Elizabeth Cady Stanton Hometown Association had planned a three-day, two-night fully supported bike ride this August. Due to concerns about COVID-19, ECSHA has postponed the ride until Aug. 20 through 22, 2021. The ride will start in Johnstown — the birthplace of both Elizabeth Cady Stanton and her revolutionary ideas — to her home in Seneca Falls where she shared those ideas at the world changing, 1848 Women’s Rights Convention.

Next year’s ride will have all the highlights of this year’s ride:

— A kick-off with Sue Macy, author of “Wheels of Change,” a book about the importance of bicycling to both the suffrage movement and women’s lives on Aug. 19, 2021.

— A stop at a school where Susan B. Anthony taught.

— A boat ride on the Erie Canal — an information highway in the days of Elizabeth Cady Stanton

— A visit to the home of Matilda Joslyn Gage.

— A visit to the New York state Equal Rights Heritage Center.

— A visit to the home of Harriet Tubman.

— A visit to the Elizabeth Cady Stanton’s Seneca Falls home.

— Breakfast, snacks, dinners, speakers and lots of history.

To register for next year’s event, visit ecstantonhometown.org. Registration is limited.
