I'm a Canadian who wants to travel around New York state a bit. I'm not the most athletic guy, actually, I'm in the least athletic guy category right now... Anyways, I've got some time on my hands, and I'd like to take advantage of it. I'm in Toronto, and will be in Syracuse early next month. I was thinking I could do some riding in New York for a month or so.
This will need to be done on a budget so I'd like to avoid motels. Are there enough free campgrounds where I can put up a tent between Syracuse and New York city? Should I have another destination in mind other than New York city? I've never been there, but don't know if showiing up on a bike is appropriate.
How can I find out about routes? Google mapping it has given me an idea, but I'd like to stay away from high-traffic roads since I'm a newbie.
My intent isn't really to travel a great distance, just to get out for a while on the road and enjoy some scenes. New York state, being so close to Toronto, seems like an ideal choice. Any help is appreciated. Thanks
