NYC- 9W to Piermont

You need to decide why you want a road bike. If it's purely for fitness, you're going to be more than fine on your current bike with slicks. You have to remember that road bikes may weigh less but...

Too bad. It looks like an awesome route. If I was out there by myself, I'd probably bag it after 50 or 60 miles. With a 10AM start time, I'd be lucky to finish 90 before sunset. Add to it 6 hours...
