Need advice on route selection
« on: February 28, 2012, 09:40:27 pm »
I have narrowed it down to two selections and I'm looking for someone with comments that has biked Bar Harbor to Windsor locks or Erie PA to Owen Sound.  Comments on topography and anything else you could share.

Thanks

Once upon a time ('99) I rode ACA's Atlantic Coast route from Bar Harbor to Philadelphia after crossing the country on the Nothern Tier route. Maine wasn't hard topography wise, but there was too much traffic for my liking, esepcially on/near U.S. 1. The rest of it wasn't that difficult either. There were some nice stretches, but overall, it's not going to knock your socks off. The portion south of Windsor Locks was nicer. Note that I think they changed they changed the route somewhat since I did it. IIRC, it now goes into RI for a bit.

Can comment on your other choise except to say that the ride up to the Canadian side of the falls in nice. The Rainbow Hostel in the older part of Niagara Falls was a decent place to stay.
