Your thoughts on a New York Bike Route 9 tour?
« on: June 16, 2019, 10:23:44 pm »
I'm planning a tour this summer, 6-7 days, from the Canadian-New York border to Manhattan, hugging eastern New York along State Bicycle Route 9.

I'd be very interested in your thoughts about specific areas of interest along the route, places to stay, where to linger and where to move through quickly.

This has been covered many times; see archives. Unless the state bike route has changed from what I know of it, it follows too many busy roads to be bicycle friendly. In general, roads on west side of Hudson River are less busy than on east. Cross over railroad bridge in Highland or at Newburgh. Avoid Rt 32 north of Saugerties and all Rt 9 on either side of the Hudson .

OK, thanks for the heads up.
