I would like to ride from Boston to New York and I have started to get out the maps. Before I get too involved in assimilating from 5 diff. maps, does anyone know of a tested route or cue sheet?

I would also welcome any company and I am planning for as early as July 20th-Aug, with a day-or-so in Boston.

Thanks for your help!

We used to do a ride to Boston that went like this:
NYC to Orient Point, (north fork of Long Island), Ferry to New London, CT. Stay overnight in New London, Cycle up to Boston the next day. Bus or fly home.

One option

A possible inland route: Use any cue sheet to get you to North White Plains. Then use the cue sheet in the Ride Library: North White Plains to Sheffield, under Upstate. You can easily find your way from Sheffield to Route 20, to the north. Buy a Jimapco map of Berkshire County. I would stay off Route 7 as much as possible. I would take a right on Maple Avenue which becomes County Road, a left onto Gt Barrington Rd at the stop, a right at the old chicken coop then Fish Hatchery Road in Hartsville to a right on Route 23 east. Pick up Route 8 north in Otis, then Route 20 east in Becket. Although I haven't taken it further on a bike, Steve Weiss does a ride for charity each August which follows 20 far east before going south, I think at Sturbridge, and on to Provincetown. You can connect the dots to Boston if you aim for Hopkinton and follow the Boston Marathon route.
