I'm planning on making a three-day trip from Boston to NY next week since I have spring break. I know this is more a touring question but I figured I'd ask here since commuters ride all the time. I'm planning on following this route:
However, I'm concerned about ice since I'd be traveling in rural areas for most of the way-in fact, a quick google news search turns up several articles citing icy road conditions a few weeks ago all over ct. If that's still the case i'll probably postpone this trip. If anyone has commuted on any of these roads recently and is aware of their current status any input or suggestions for alternative routes would be appreciated-I'm still debating whether to get studded tires or not. Right now i'm running schwalbe marathon plus 26x1.75s, which I could deflate if I run into any ice, and I do have some 2.1 knobbies.
