I really enjoyed riding in the Southern Tier and the fall foliage and scenery is spectacular. It can be quite hilly though.
Nirchi's breakfast pizza!!

It can be a tough place to ride if you want it to be. Generally flat in the valley, but if you want hills, you don't have to go very far.

who goes to Binghamton to eat Pizza?

Speidies from Lupo's are a must. For me, I like Pork and Lamb they cook it fresh when ordered!

But now that I think of it, across the street from Lupo's in Kmart Plaza is a really decent NY Pizza place.

Steve - Pine Creek Gorge is probably nice this time of year, and not too far for you. Although not in NY of course. if you haven't been there it's a packed gravel trail with a mild grade (1-2% iirc).

I seem to recall thinking Rt 14 along the west side of Seneca Lake would be a nice ride - not too hilly once you are out of WG right?

People who live in Binghamton?

NY Pizzaria is the place you're thinking of. Grandes on Front St., Michelangelo's on Court St., and Mama Giuseppa's on North St. in Endicott are our favorites.

Cortese's on Robinson St. is my favorite. My family is from Binghamton way back. Soft spot in my heart for this neck of NY.

Not yet peak in the Hudson Valley. It was near peak in the Adirondacks when we were camping last week. The foliage went back to green coming down the Taconic.

Good rail trail rides are the Walkill Trail in the area south of Kingston, another is the Catskill Scenic Trail up in Roxbury,

Not sure where your home base is so can't suggest many others as not sure where you want to travel to.

I everyone, im new and saw this thread. I live here in Syracuse. One of the nice things is that the Erie Canal Bike Trail runs right thru us. You can go to the Green Lakes Cedar Bay area and take the canal towards utica if you like(East). That in itself is a very long ride a good 70 at least. Years ago I barely made it to Rome lol.

But you can also access the Erie Canal Bike Trail in Camillus at the "Sims Store". Thats West of the City. That section will take you all the way into Port Byron (approx 60 plus miles)heading west.

Heres a shot of the Erie Canal Aqueduct in Camillus (I believe its the only working one left???)




Both sections are flat for the most part, well maintained light stone base, several nice stopping points along the way...Beach Cruisers or getouttamywayimridingbyfast can be accommodated on this trail lol.


But we also now have the "loop the lake" trail at Onondaga Lake (photo below)which right now is a total of just 7 miles but honeywell is working on making it a full loop (approx 13miles). This trail is paved, winding, flat with awesome stops and is a nice ride for sure. Nice parking in all of the above areas I talked about.

But it is fun to ride up here in are area CNY...We just dont have much time left this year lol..

That was the fourth day of a week long tour from Brattleboro, VT to Philly. I actually came up short that day due to various circumstances and ended up camping in Cuddebackville, NY, at about mile 59. The second day was 53 miles with nearly 4,100' of climbing:

It's hilly but the hills are rolling. I was thinking about having the wife drive me to Geneva and riding the bike Down 14 to WG.

It really is nice, they are not done with it yet but for now it goes a little more than 7 miles. If you have ever been to the NYS Fair, coming in from 81 you would get off exit 7 of 690W go right up to the orange parking lot. They have a nice parking area right there. Thats where the West Shore section starts.

Heres some shots:

Several rest stops along the way with bike racks lol...


It passes right thru the new Lakeview Amphitheater. They have open bathrooms here. They only closes this section when there is a concert here.


Plenty of this.


And this.....

My profile pic is where it ends up (west side trail) its called Long Branch Park. From there you pickup the East Shore trail

All free of course. All paved but there are gravel trails within....

NYSteve:
The rail trail from Hopewell Junction to the Railway Bridge over the Hudson (Poughkeepsie) is real nice. Round trip about 28 miles, well paved and plenty of parking.
The Goshen to Monroe one is ok. I'm waiting for them to start/finish the trail from Middletown to Goshen. That would be great. And then Middletown and beyond.
