Niagra Falls to NYC
« on: July 31, 2012, 03:53:10 pm »
Hi all,

I'm leaving next week from Seattle to do the Norther Tier as far as Detroit, where I'm meeting up with a friend. From there we'd like to ride into NYC via a somewhat direct route. It looks like New York has some established bike routes, but I can't find a lot of info on them. Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance

One option is to follow the erie canal trail to Albany then follow the Hudson river.  NY state parks has a ride following the erie canal and another following the hudson

Erie Canal Trail to the Hudson River. Get a copy of "Cycling the Erie Canal" from Parks and Trails New York. I recommend taking 9W down the west side of the river. It is lightly traveled as most of the traffic is on the interstate. Then cross over the George Washington Bridge to the city.

When I lived in Hoboken my ride of choice was to go north on 9W.
