Routes / New York City to Boston
« on: May 11, 2009, 10:32:06 am »
Biking to Boston and up to Bar Harbor this summer.  Wondering if anyone has any advice on which route to take.  Planning on biking up route 9 to Poughkeepsie and meeting up with the atlantic coast route to Boston.  Has anyone done if differently?  Along the coast of Connecticut and Rhode Island - because I think I would prefer coastal riding.

i did the northern tier last summer - east bound.
we also decided to cut through (into michigan ) to new york city.

so i would recommend (from nyc) going north on route 9 until Albany.  then west bound through syracuse and rochester to buffalo.  (i forgot the route number - but im sure its on a ny state bike map)
hope that helps! if you have any other questions feel free :)

i dont know what this westinghouse is saying and havnt bothered to continue reading it frankly.
im 17 and was just diagnosed with t1d last month.  since then i havnt been bike touring yet - but this summer I biked across the country from Seattle to New York on the northern tier.

i really dont think food is that big of a problem even in the middle of no where.  at least on my trip -  the longest distance we went without a town was about 50 miles and in those conditions - you would stock yourself with high carb and sugar foods.

what route are you taking?  i would be glad to answer any questions :)
have fun!!
