NY State Bike Route 5
« on: August 30, 2005, 02:35:58 pm »
Several years ago, I rode from Niagara Falls to Massachusetts on a route that I had planned. Recently, I have discovered SBR5. Has anyone ridden all or part of this route? If so, any suggestions on terrain, road conditions, or your personal preferences?

I already have the maps for NYDOT.

As I recall (correct me if I am wrong), SR 5 parrallels the Erie Canal.  For the section that I did, it's gently rolling and has a shoulder.  Generally goes through smaller towns, but does go through Rochester.
