Philly -> NYC
I am planning on riding to NYC for the film festival next weekend. I currently know of 2 routes to take, one is the BCP route which goes through new Hope, and is about 145 miles. The other way is taking route 1. Has anyone done this before? I am under the impression that route 1 is just a highway with a small shoulder. It seems like this way would be alot faster, but also alot scarier and less scenic.
Additionally, we are working on a place to stay, but is there a new yorker here that can offer up a back-up place to shower/store our bikes/sleep. It would only be 2 of us, maybe a third. This would be for saturday night, and we'd come get our bikes sunday evening and head home on the bus.
