|KenR, July 2005: Rhinebeck
Going north from Rhinebeck, I reversed the
Rhinebeck to Tivoli bicycle route to get to Red Hook. Then north
on Budd Corners, east on Rockefeller Lane, then various roads to
Elizaville, then County Rt 19 north (nice), Maple Av (west) (nice),
Sparrow Bush (west) (pretty farms but coarse-stone pavement). Took
County Rt 31 north to its end -- not the smoothest pavement but OK,
and is rather scenic north-bound. Rt 9 North was more scenic than I
expected, and less traffic than I feared (on a weekday afternoon).
Then west on Warren St thru downtown Hudson to its end (with various
food options and mostly smooth pavement). Then left down a mod-steep
hill to the Amtrak train station of Hudson.
