What is the best route from Virginia to New York?
« on: August 01, 2012, 08:54:01 pm »
I'm fairly new to long distance biking, and was trying to find the best route from Virginia to New York.  Any advice would be much appreciated!

Both are big states. Please be more specific. Look here http://www.adventurecycling.org/routes/RouteNetwork.pdf at the Atlantic Coast route, which will probably cover most of it.

I have gone up the east coast from Florida to NY a number of times. From Virginia I go to Lewes, Delaware where I catch the ferry to Cape May. From there I go straight up US9. If the bridge is still under construction over the Mullica river near New Gretna it requires a detour to the west on 50. From Toms River I cut towards the coast on 70. To get into Manhattan I take the train (off hours) from Long Branch or (much more relaxing) the ferry from Atlantic Highlands.
