I/ve ridden from Portsmouth NH to Boston along 1A/133/127/114/129 and the routes were not too hilly till I got near Ipswich.  Check out an old book
"cycling the atlantic coast (donna aikenbery?)".  I rode as far a Revere Beach and picked up the "T" into Boston.  You'll also want the Reubels bike maps.
Contact me off group for my cue sheets and other info

You dont state what part of "upstate" so I'll have you look into the following:

North & South County trails in Westchester Cty.
From E 233rd St and Bronx River, The Bronx River Bike paths to Pehlam Parkway.  Check out Transportation Alternatives for bridge crossings (you cant ride over the Throggs Nerck or Whitestone, but you can ride over the Triboro to Queens).  Also check out
Any further questions contact me directly. Ex NYC resident.

Routes / Cycling Trip On Cape Cod

Most of the State Parks charge a daily parking fee and may not allow overnight parking.  You may want to get the MA state park site and put the question to them.
Check wih local PD's.  they may tell where a good place to park is.  The trailhead lots,on the cape are usually closed after dark.  You may wish to get a camp site park there and travel around.   Thats what I'm doing this year  Shady Knoll in Brewster (mid cape) is near the trail

get the Reubels bike map for the Cape first of all.
On the cape there are 2 state campgrounds and many private.  There is only 1 on Martha's Vineyard and the cheapest ferry to MV is at Woods Hole ($6.50 + $3.00 for bike one way). There is also Scussett CG on the mainland near the Sagamore bridge anda private one near the Bourne bridge.  Check out the Ma. state siet for the Cape Code Rail Trail.  Some of it will be closed for maint. until mid june.

Amtrack's "downeaster" runs from Boston's North Station to Portland.  You can wheel you bikes on board.  A reservation must be made.  You could box the whole set up and send via Greyhound.  I believe there is a bike path between Bath and Brunswick, check  I have the same problem as I plan to ride from Bar Harbor to Boston next year, but have to get my gear from Springfield MA to Bar Harbor.
Amtrack does't have a baggage car in Springfield so I have to either get a friend to drive me to Boston or box and send everything by bus.

NY & VT dropped funding for that train.  The MA commuter trains only allow bikes on off peak. MBTA has a train that goes to the beaches in the summer.
The MA commuter trains go from boston to Worcester and if you have to go further west your stuck..  You can go from boston to plymouth, and boston to newburyport.  There is some planning to get trains from New haven to Springfield and maybe to Worcester.
