Routes Overview

  Ken Roberts and Sharon Marsh Roberts

We like routes where most of the roads have open views, farms and orchards, creeks and rivers, interesting descents, and little motorized traffic.  This website includes many of our favorites.  We also know that everyone's style and taste is different, and that there are lots more beautiful and fun roads in the Hudson valley -- so we hope that some of these will serve also as a starting point for developing new favorites of your own.
