I should be hitting the Falls/Buffalo area by 1:30 2ish on the Friday. Any suggestions for routing to Hancock?

Watching the thread none the less.   Cool

Ha—I'm in the same situation. There are probably 1,000 ways to get from Morgantown to Hancock...and I have no clue which might be the best. (Only which is the longest and shortest.) So I guess we'll just hit the road and play it by ear.

Not an awsume road but 96 between Seneca and Cayuga lakes is some beautiful country.  I'm sure 14 is good too.  Stop and see the waterfalls.

Not an unusual situation to be in if you travel a lot.  Try looking on a map for roads that don't go through large population centers or lots of small towns.   If the map shows detail, look for squiggly lines.  If the map doesn't show detail, then a higher ratio of indicated miles to straight line distance indicates more traversing.  If the map shows topological features, look for roads that run through elevation changes.  Roads that parallel railroad tracks or streams can look twisty without radical changes in grade.  That's how I do it.  

Of course, none of that gives any indication of surface conditions.   Ya picks a route and rolls them bones.  If yer riding with me, it'll prolly turn to dirt at some point in the day.  You can also preview it on Google Earth, but somehow that just seems like cheating to me, and it gets tedious quick.  There's something to be said for serendipitous discovery.

Once took NY14 south along Seneca Lake (from Lake Ontario to the PA state line, south of Elmira, NY.) Couple of sweepers but you take that road for the vistas, not the lean angles....

Weather permitting.
