We could not resist including some rides just outside the terrain actually drained by
the Hudson River -- but close enough so that Hudson Valley cyclists can enjoy them.
- Southern Berkshires Tour -- Connecticut and
Massachusetts -- 68 miles, moderate
hilliness. Canaan CT (or Salisbury) to Stockbridge MA and Tanglewood
(near Lenox). Variety of scenery in the southern Berkshires, farm fields and
animals. Lots of
pleasant riding on quiet roads, and several fun downhills. Variations
up to 85 miles, also a 28-mile short
tour. In Litchfield County, CT and
Berkshire County, MA. 4000 vertical feet, hill
index 3.4. [ Description

- Quaker Ridge -- 45 miles, hilly. Lots of
beautiful scenes on quiet back roads -- in southeast Dutchess County and Connecticut.
3300 vertical feet, hill
index 4.2. Start points Pawling, Dover Plains, Brewster, Kent CT.

(Actually this ride is partly inside the boundaries, since East Main St in
Pawling crosses the Croton River, which drains to the Hudson River.)
