Charming area in historic New Hope. Walk where others may have lingered more than a 100 years ago. Not one of the 7th wonders of the ancient world, but you could do worse.

The canal path is a pleasant relaxing ride for all ages. The terrain is flat and fast and perfect for mountain or cyclocross bikes.

I don't recall there being any bike rentals around. I wasn't really looking for them though. The area isn't that big where you might need a bike to get around. Well my opinion. We walked to see everything.
