I use the NYS bike maps & like them ,the roads are somewhat busy but usually have a great shoulder.
The Erie canal trail runs mostly parallel to NYS bike 5.
Over on Crazy Guy Dale Oswald just posted links to Erie canal trail interactive map.

General Discussion / Re: Is it worth installing a kick stand?
« on: March 09, 2009, 03:29:41 pm »
You can get much of the benefit of the Flick Stand by putting a velcro-strapping the front wheel to the down tube.  I think I've seen a toe strap used for this too.  For a parking brake for the tandem, we just use the drag brake with its bar-end shifter control
Or-------use ball bungies -
 I like the double kickstand .
