This seems to be a pretty common route.

I don't have the specifics but you would ride from Chicago to Erie then up to Buffalo and across New York to Deerfield. A good portion of the ride from Erie and across NY is actually dedicated bike paths.

Research the Canalway Trail and the Mohawk/Hudson Trail.
