Closer to the bridge you could avoid 9w and cut down to Tenafly and pick up County Rd 501 for a flatter trip to Piermont, or better make a left off 9W at the Esplanade and explore the hills and estates at Rio Vista. The only ride in Westchester that I do regularly is the North and South County Rail Trail. You can find the start of it at Van Cortland Park in the Bronx and take it all the way to Brewster NY. You might want to check out the ride library at the New York Cycle Club (though it might be a members only section). Also check the websites for other local clubs to see what rides they might have listed.
Usually what I do is go up 501 and come back down 9W. I may check out that 7 Lakes Drive when it gets a little bit nicer, that'll be one hell of a ride for me as I'm from south Brooklyn so my round trip to Nyack is already 82 miles. Is there any good route you would recomend to get up to 7 Lakes from the GWB?
