New Off-Road Bike tours in New York City area
« on: December 30, 2011, 03:06:16 pm »
I am starting a new company in New York City area to promote off road biking.  This might be a great experience for people coming to New York to explore some parts outside of New York City.  New York has a lot to offer besides the city itself.  Please visit my website and support the biking community www.biketoursny.com.  Please also give me any feedback about the business idea and website as we are new and looking to build up.

Hey Mark, looks like a good and fun idea. I grew up in the Mid-Hudson Valley and New Paltz is an amazing place to ride, both on-road and off. The 'Gunks are pretty unbeatable, plus New Paltz has great aprés-ride culture. As I recall, there is also some amazing riding around Bear Mountain.

Karmelj, contact New Jersey Randonneurs (www.njrando.com/), Central and Western NY Randonneurs (http://www.distancerider.net/rides.php) and Mike B. of VT Randonneurs (http://littlecirclesvt.com/about/). Between them, they should be able to direct you to scenic, enjoyable routes from NYC to Buffalo. If you're up for extra distance, I suggest routing through the Catskills and Finger Lakes regions. The views are wholly worth the extra day or two.

Rte. 5 has a spur to Buffalo and intersects with Rte. 9 which takes you into NJ then Manhattan via the GWB.

If you are going to be on AC's Nothern Tier route along Lake Erie, you can take Rte. 17 from Westfield (located between Erie, PA and Dunkirk, NY).  Rte. 17 also intersects Rte. 9.
