Excellent stretch of road right through the heart of New York. Rolling hills and farms for miles. The road conditions are excellent and the curves and hills are gentle enough to ride with your copilot. Never ventured into this part of the state before, but I will be back sooner than later. Lots of places to stop to eat and gas up. Great ride!

I've used this route many times heading East on my way to Laconia NH for Bike Week. Bring you back to the late 50's early 60's before the highway system took over. nice wide road with history all along the way

Great Road. Especially from Auburn east with little traffic (except during the antique festival in Bouckville in August). Four lanes of rolling hills with interesting stops along the way... Cazenovia, Hamilton, Cooperstown just to name a few. I ride it every chance I get, this is one of my all-time favorite stretches of road in New York.

A really nice, peaceful, easy cruise. Also alot of good stops either on the route or just off it. Cooperstown, the Ommegang Brewery just south in Milford, Sharon Springs (a nice old spa town) and Dinosaur BBQ in Syracuse!
