The ACA's Adirondack loop can get you to Albany or close to it... also the Lake Champlain Bikeways can help for loops around Lake Champlain and/or getting to Whitehall where there is a bus station.
You might also check out the Cross Vermont Trail which is in development but passable... it's part gravel but generally supposed to be doable in a road bike with wide tires... (It's on my todo list)...
VT state campgrounds are awesome, hard to go wrong with touring in new england, better if you have a gravel friendly bike, vt has some nice dirt roads off the beaten path and so do many states outside the metropolitan area.
could also consider riding into Canada, La Route Verta has an extensive network of trails around Quebec, etc. Or take the ferry from South Portand to Yarmouth, NS and just ride from the terminal..... Ride to Halifax, Ride to Cape Breton, etc. etc.. Do the Cabot Trail...
