Connecting ACA Routes / Re: Westchester County, NY to Boston - Routes?
« on: August 11, 2009, 03:42:13 pm »
hi I had lived in Mt Kisco for a while then moved up into SE Dutchess county in the charming village of Pawling NY - if you live in the EASTERN MTA MNCRR HARLEM LINE side
of Westchester AND you have a bike permit you could "cheat" a bit and take the train up to Pawling then begin your ride from there - when I had lived in Pawling (in the early 90's) I had actualy met some cyclists from NYC who had ridden up to MA from there or Dover Plains - I don't have my maps with me as I write this reply to see how you would ride up to Pawling from eastern Westchester but I have a number of routes in the Harlem Valley - improvements on SR 22 have been made since I had lived there and now I think tech. is a NY state bike route - but I would sugest CR 6 that goes along SR 22 to Dover Plains from WINGDALE - about 5 or so mile north of Pawling - to get to wingdale instead of SR 22 could ride CR 20 then CR 21 EAST (west is a VERY serious up Pleasant Ridge 1200') CR 20 is VERY nice for cycling - actualy the entire Harlem Valley in Dutchess County VERY VERY nice and...

once you make it up to Wassaaic (you could also "cheat" a LOT and take the train ALL the way up to here) then you could ride the Harlem Valley rail trail to Milerton then the Atlantic Coast route into CT and into MA OR... continue NORTH from Milerton and then into MA via the BERKSHIRE MOUNTAINS (take note of latter)

I have a number of day ride routes in the Harlem Valley I don't know if I have provided a link to the klong distance routes described here - my cycling website is still kind of in an embryonic state - the URL:

RE: ACR section 2 map 19 (#BC-1442 04l) FDR Mid Hudson Bridge walkway access route and Poughkeepsie local route

just in case the above map has not been updated with the info I had sent here is the link to the document I had sent to AC several years ago - in addition to the route to/from the ACR over the FDR MH bridge here in Pok. NY this doc also includes loding and other info for the Poughkeepsie area - in another subject/forum and/or post I will provide the latest update to the ACR through Dutchess county NY including a relatively NEW county campsite in the far north of the county along / very near to the route and...

the above bridge currently is the ONLY crossing between Pok. and Highland NY BUT... in October there will be a NEW MUCH more bicycle friendly crossing the Walkway Over The Hudson - I am working on alternate route to/from the ACR for that crossing as well for more about the walkway visit their website at:

also I have a blog detailing the progress of the above
