Not quiet appreciating the task ahead...
Carbo loading with some tasty Poutine
Some great sightseeing in Toronto
An extended first day in the hope of making it to NYC in 2 days... a foolish dream. The route goes from Toronto following the QEW on the service road then through Niagara Falls, over the Rainbow Bridge border crossing, then mainly following route 31 to Syracuse
Missing the first 8 miles, following the map and forgot to press the start button...
Bike packed up and ready to go
Toronto on the other side of lake ontario
Great views of the falls
Boarding crossing over the bridge
Ready for the crossing
A lot more painful than expected! A very slow and hilly start on route 5 to Utica then a very beautiful and flat ride along route 5 to Albany. Careful following this route, there is certainly better ways and I did end up on some inappropriate roads, there were signs for the ‘bike route 5’ but I must have missed some turnings
Ready to go on a cold, crisp 2nd day
First and only puncture
Beautiful Fall colors (/Autumn colours) in upstate NY
Great wings in Utica!
Arrived in Albany, the state capitial has some cool buildings
The bike and George Washington
A very very painful day of cycling. Effcetivly following route 9 (the historic route of Broadway) from Albany to New York City. I did get lost around Poughkeepsie when route 9 turns into a highway and then I lost the bike route 9 signs. I think this is the slowest I have ever cycled as my kness and neck gave up. The metro north trains looked so tempting at times.
Final 18 miles on Map My Ride
Starting on Boradway in Albany
Some more great scenary in upstate NY
Shipping my bag back to NYC!
