I have looked up a few cue sheets online (including the east coast greenway), and i was wondering if anyone has any experience with biking in Westchester and coastal CT west of NH. I would prefer to stay near the coast if possible, and I would particularly like to know about the following:
-What's the best way to go from UWS to Pelham Bay? I had one suggest cutting across at 181st and another suggesting going all the way up to Marble Hill. Also, is Mosholu Parkway itself bike friendly?
-Info regarding any part of US 1 between the Bronx and Milford, CT. I recall a post from a few years ago saying that the portions in CT are quite rideable, is this still true?
-What alternatives are there to RT1. I would prefer to go at least a few miles before stopping for traffic.
-Overall, how friendly are the drivers along this route?
Many thanks in advance,
