Routes / Connecting Northern Tier to Chicago
« on: May 14, 2012, 03:52:56 pm »
I was wondering if anybody had some insight on the best way to get to chicago from the northern tier route. I'm going from east to west and I would like to end at chicago, but I'm not sure when and where I should route off of the ACA trail. I don't have a great sense of direction, so I'm looking for something simple. I see that illinois has mapped out the state for bikes, but I'm not sure where to start, or if I'd be better off rerouting from Indiana or Ohio.

Routes / New York State Bike Routes vs. ACA Northern Tier?

Hi all. I was wondering if anybody had any experience with the new york state bike routes. I'm planning to bike to chicago in June and I live in the hudson valley just north of NYC. Route 17 runs the southern tier of New York and is probably the most convenient, but I could also take route 9 up north, which could either connect to route 5 to go west or all the way up to ticonderoga to connect with the northern tier route. Has anybody biked the state routes? I like the idea of just following one road, which would simplify things. If it gets too hilly, I have no qualms about getting off and walking. I just want to take things leisurely and enjoy things.
