Connecting ACA Routes / Re: Boston to New Paltz, looking for alternates

Hi Rebecca:
     I don't know if this is too late for you:
     You don't have to go on Rt. 9 to get from Amherst to Northampton.  There is a rail trail paralleling Rt. 9 between the 2 towns!  The 1st time I saw it I thought it was full of broken glass, but I learned that was limestone!  There is even a rt 9 underpass!  It ends as soon as you cross the Conn. River.  Then there is a multi-use path thru the north side of Northampton that ends at a park a few miles later.  By that time, when you get back on Rt. 9 you should be much better off.  I guess there will be some trucks going from Northampton to Pittsfield on Rt. 9 but most of them will be on US 20, US 5, and the Pike.
     Good luck with your trip.  Keep the wheel side down!

Hi everyone!
     I just volunteered to help with the USBRS.  I live in Princeton.  In the 1980's I sold a set of strip maps called Bicycling Through New Jersey.  I was in charge of routes for GEAR UP 1985 from The College of NJ.  I was in charge of routes for the Princeton Event for the 1st 10 years, 1981-1991.  I have been a SAG at the Farmlands Flat Century and The Hillier Than Thou Century.
     I would like to work with people on any issues regarding routing on or near the East Coast.  Oh yes, I have tour books galore for NJ and bordering states.  I know that I can be an asset to the organization.  I hope to hear from some of you soon.
     Happy tail winds.
