Hello all, currently I'm on a bicycle in South-Central Indiana coming from San Antonio headed to NY State.
I intend to enter New York State on Lake Erie and then head east to the Orange County NY area.
From Lake Erie I can either pass Buffalo and go to Lockport to pick up the Erie Canal Trail or before Buffalo pick up Bicycle Route 17 past Jamestown and across the Southern Tier.
Seems like that second route must be seriously hilly, ergo slower.
All feedback appreciated.
