|Hey ladies and germs, |
I'm looking for maps that bikes can use (we can't use all highways/bridges, etc., of course) for plotting pleasant training routes. I live in New York, and am itching to get out of the city in the spring.

They specialize in maps for long distance touring, but I'm sure that any portions of this route that pass through your area would be suitable for training.
