Cleveland, OH to NYC
« on: July 12, 2006, 12:37:01 pm »
I'm planning to ride from Cleveland back to NYC and am
curious if others have done this and would recommend a
route.  Riding up to Buffalo and then along the Erie
Canal Towpath to Albany, and from there staying as
close to the Hudson as possible is the best I have
right now.  If anyone could comment on that plan or
suggest alternatives, I would be very grateful.

You could do the Erie Canal, NYS Bike Route 5 (both flat as a board) or the Adventure Cycling Northern Tier route which goes further north.  From Albany south you could take NYS Bike Route 9.  

ALternatively you go look into NYS Bike Route 17 which traverses the southern tier of NYS.

A third option would be to drop down from Erie to the PA state bike route across the northern part of PA.

These state bike routes can be found on the state DOT websites.  They are not necessarily the best routes.
