So I'm in ND right now so I've got a little time to work this out. I'm going to a town on the St. Lawrence river in New York pretty close to Brockville Ont. I know the southern and northern route reasonably well by highway but I've never biked either. I've heard bad things about biking through western NY and having once lived outside buffalo I not too surprised. I'm unsure but I think the american route is slightly shorter but that doesn't mean better.
So has anyone ridden around lake ontario and have suggestions? I havn't decided where to cross if I do go north, possibly north of Detroit and Windsor and cut over to Ottawa then down old 16
