Folks are coming through Middleport this afternoon in a 350 mile bike ride along the Erie Canal to celebrate 25 years of the Americans with Disabilities Act and to highlight the need for employment and educational opportunities for all--if you see them, cheer them on! We would, but we're holding down the fort at the library!
