Maybe it's early but need a way to pass my summer nights when it's raining.

Post here suggested roads and routes going to Hancock, NY and good riding in the surrounding area.

Peekamoose Mountain road is a good ride and Blue hole is a quick walk away. http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://9wmag.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/HZ_110702_Peekamoose_1963.jpg&imgrefurl=http://9wmag.com/2011/07/02/peekamoose/&h=1000&w=750&sz=306&tbnid=tWHnEt_4F72bNM:&tbnh=92&tbnw=69&zoom=1&usg=__Ms9CK-oUMjp-f6j5x05aFoYcZz4=&docid=wUMWKsEk62z8IM&sa=X&ei=kpzNUfevA-nriQKtpoCQAw&ved=0CE4Q9QEwBw&dur=6328#imgdii=tWHnEt_4F72bNM%3A%3BYesw6d2NQOjNZM%3BtWHnEt_4F72bNM%3A

Yep, looks like it catches the Eye of the Catskills, Phoenicia or Tannersville for lunch & gas, cr-47 from Big Indian to Curry & Peekamoose Mt road.  I think you got everything in there but a stop at the microbrewery  Beerchug

This is STN Wink

Unfortunately, there are none in Hancock, which was one of the considerations in favor of a location in Windham.   Of course, the Flying Pigs might all be stopping here.  I might ride by the Water St Brewing Co in Binghamton for one or 2 six packs on the way up; fits nicely in the topcase along with my raingear, which I hopefully won't be wearing.  Two sixes ought to take care of me for the weekend.  If that does run out Friday night, I'm hoping to find Ommegang Beer someplace local in town.  If not, there's also the Cooperstown Brewing Company in Milford, NY.  Would have to work that into the end of Saturday's ride.  That's good for me.

Been to Ommegang and Cooperstown a few times. Butternuts too!  There is a brewpub up near there too. But I think there might be one on the Hudson near the Cats. also.

Instead of a brewery, how bout a distillery right across the road from the Woodstock site, now  called Bethel Woods. (Just west of #26 on Garry's map)
http://www.dancingcatsaloon.com
http://www.bethelwoodscenter.org/about.aspx

#27 on Garry's map is the location of a wood fired brick oven pizza oven which was imported from Italy and built outdoors. Lou, the owner put some counters up and serves beer and soda. Toppings come from the garden across the street. This is the best damn pizza I have ever had and nothing like what's served in Pizza shops. Facebook link is the best I could do:
https://www.facebook.com/cornerpiazza

I occasionally see gravel in turns on both 47 through Frost Valley and 42 through Peekamoose...certainly nothing to shy away from, just a word of caution.

Damn good job, Garry.

Distillery you say.  Not far away in the black soil of NY sits http://www.wvwinery.com/ The Warwick Valley Winery and American Fruits Distillery.  Also home to Doc's Cider, IMHO the best commercial Hard Cider made in the USA.  Bellweather in the Finger Lakes is a very close second.  Warwick Valley has a Cafe, BBQs sometimes and live music most weekends.

Here's a 275-mile loop I just routed...(with no insider knowledge—it just looks good on the map!)

I'm curious if the article lists any must see points of interest, routes, or other local knowledge which might benefit an out-of-towner such as myself.

I took that pic a few years ago when I rode from Hancock to Port Jervis on a loop that included N. E. Penn. Wish I could remember the PA route.

Hmm...now you guys got me interested in NY97. Is the whole stretch of it between Port Jervis and Hancock really great? Just wondering if it would be worth slabbing it to Port Jervis on our way to Hancock...then taking 97? (Or taking 97 to Port Jervis on our way home, then slabbing it the rest of the way?)

If the whole 70 miles looks like that photo, it might be worth it! If not (if just Hawks Nest looks like that) then I'll forget it...

Hey, SW....Hawks Nest is the only section that is elevated like that.
The road travels down the hill and runs alongside the Delaware for a while and then rises again with the river disappearing from site. Further north, you get glimpses of the river.
Is it a decent ride, yes.
Is it epic and not to be missed...well, not really but it isn't bad....
Road surface is paved but bumpy in spots.
Hope that helps

Ok, thanks Hank. Sounds like it's probably not worth going out of our way for...

I think this is what I rode, with a couple detours.  Some new roads for me and a great time!  Sorry no pics.
