Every summer we get a lot of cyclists passing through our hostel in Toronto.
They come from as far away as Europe and South America and some have already biked across Canada from Vancouver on the Pacific Coast, five time-zones west!
Their ultimate destination is usually New York City!
However, we don’t get many cyclists from New York City! Actually, none that I can think of at the moment!
It is likely because the Interstate Highway that connects NYC with the border atr Niagara Fallls is a pretty boring stretch of highway! So New Yorkers likely head North towards Maine or South towards Florida or Southwest to Califoirnia!
According to our intrepid pair from Brooklyn, if you avoid the area adjacent to the Interstate and travel up the Finger Lakes region (a gift of the Glaciation Era) and the Adirondaks it is a scenic wonder!
They had a relaxing five day bike ride to Toronto where they enjoyed our city and our beer for three days.
Time constraints have forced them to hop a bus back home to be back at work. The beauty of it is that it iis a mere 12 hours (of sleep) by bus back to the Big Apple via the Interstate Highway.
