Talking Best Road in NY

The best road is Rt.#10 off I-90 between Utica and Albany. Go north off Rt. 10 to the end (rt. 8) 30 miles of solid twisties , no blind corners perfect blacktop, asphalt

I love that stretch of Rt. 10! Altough it is short, I like the stretch of Rt. 2 just as you cross the border from Massachusetts. AKA Taconic Trails. Its all fresh pavement, steep, and twisty!

Rt 10 takes me a little while to get to.

I prefer to step lightly and carry a BIG stick...

Never been on Rt. 30. I would go and find out, but right now i'm stuck in Denmark working on a signal processing project for school so i'm missing my prime riding season. I won't be back on the bike until spring.

If you find out how it is, let me know!

one of my favs is just south of Binghamton on rt. 17. Twists with hills, mostly smooth, Very few cops, not "too tight", little traffic.

One of my favorites is on Route 97 (along the Delaware River) going through Sullivan and Orange Counties. Awesome scenery, few cars, even fewer cops, and miles of twisties!!! If you ever have the chance to go there it is definitely worth it!

Best route I've seen is rt. 9A down by the hudson valley just outside of New York City. Beautiful curvey road overlooking the hudson river. Just too bad its not that long

Are you talking about the stretch just north of the GW bridge before you get into Yonkers?

Na I wasnt, I think you're talking about the Henry Hudson Parkway which is kind of nice I guess, I've only driven a car on that road but as I remember its not in good shape. I was talking about one a little further up, like 15 minutes past the tappan zee bridge. The stretch between Indian Point and the Bear Mountin bridge is the best part, its just too bad its not longer.

one note on nyc biking

we used to use the interboro (jackie robinson) late at nite, its tight but after some practice, it was pretty easy, and you got a few nice curves in there

few cops even bother you there

i left brooklyn, but i still remember the nights thru there, daytime is awful, too many cars and its only about five miles long, but when you are a city-boy, you make the best of things
