Try the ride around the Pepacton Reservoir. Its is an really nice series of sweepers just watch out for the DEP police. But it is a great ride and there are many roads all around there that are great.

Rt 339 from Mahanoy City to Nescopeck. Real nice road with sweepers and tight stuff.

Rt 863 from 222 to Lynnport. Nice mix of sweepers and a few tight twisties.

Rt 143 from 309 to 662. Then follow Rt 662 to 222.

All these roads are in PA.

Skirt along the Delaware River beginning at Rte. 32 out of New Hope to Rte. 611, to US 209 thru the Nat'l Rec Area and the Water Gap, to Port Jervis, then NY97 thru the Hawk's Nest; turn around and do it in the opposite direction, or jump across the river to NJ on the way back. I try to do that loop at least once a year; makes a good, long day's ride from my hide-out in DE.


Very pretty roads, but definitely not the curviest.  The NJ side especially is very straight, with some sweepers.  Lotsa traffic as well.  Not saying it's not a nice ride, I do it often.  Just not the best for grinding the chicken strips.... Smile

How about some of the stuff around Bear Mountain / Harriman State Park in NY?  Seven Lakes Dive, Perkins Drive (the one that goes up to the tower), the road on the other side of the bridge going south (or east?).  IIRC there's a lot of fun to be had around there.  Not deserted though.

Also Storm King, NY 219 just a bit north of the N entrance to West Point is similar to Hawk's Nest but even more dramatic.


YEAH old rte 210 now 106 from 17n to the Kenuwaki circle my favorite road!!!!! Then if you go the other way rte 210 toward greenwood lake past Sterling Forest is great with no cars.

Catskills.  Take route 55 west past the Roundout Reservoir until you reach CR 19 and 5 miles north.  Turn left on the bridge in Claryville and ride CR Route 157 north to CR Route 47 to Big Indian for 20 miles.  And wear a diaper.  Unless you ride like me in which case you won't need one.

My recent in-state [nj] fave. is 647 between Harmony [519] and Brass Castle [623], aptly named Harmony-Brass Castle Rd.  Not super twisty, but it is fun, senic too.  If you end at 623, turn north
and the run up to Belvedere is nice as well.

Um thats Rt218 - yes very nice but short.  Also Bear Mtn, etc is LEO central w/ lots O bikers in warm weather.  There are some great roads up there but U have to hit them early before traffic.  Some roads Rt. 6, Rt. 9D into Cold Spring Harbor - turn right rt 301, left Farmers Mill Rd.


Pa roads are great I'm finding especially w/ low LEO presence.

Catskills have some awesome roads Ashokan Resv. Rt 28

Berkshires, Vt., Western Ct.  - I can't keep going...

Just Ride & turn off roads & wander

Yup, SR 301 is pretty good ... best in the morning before the squids wake up.

From SR 22 in White Plains, head north and then onto SR 121 north until it meets US6, nice road ... but be careful in May because you'll get LEO roadblocks checking for registration (do LEOs do this everywhere in NY?).

In CT, a route I like heading North: start from SR 22 in NY, then CR 68 (don't remember name and it isn't well marked, so find it on a map first), into CT -- SR 37, then SR 39 to US 7 ... US 7 has it's good spots, but is way crowded on weekends.

Another road I like in northern CT: SR 20 going through Tunxis State Forest heading roughly east-west.

Once in your life you have to try PA Route 144 between Moshannon and Renovo. Or continue on from Renovo to Galeton. Check it out on the map - it's the place they always put the compass (that round thingy that has an arrow pointing north) on the PA maps 'cause it's the most empty place on the map.
