Windsor Locks, CT - Conshohocken, PA (293.0 miles)
Adventure Cycling Association
Western Connecticut is rural and quite hilly. As you enter New York, the roads are generally good and signing is adequate. Expect a moderate amount of traffic which increases as you approach towns. You'll continue to encounter hills until reaching Hyde Park, in the Hudson River Valley. You'll follow this rolling valley south to busy Poughkeepsie, and cross the Hudson River on the walkway over the Hudson pedestrian bridge. The route follows river valleys and crosses the Shawnagunk Mountains to Port Jervis at New York/New Jersey border. Here, you'll begin to parallel the course of the Delaware River. Roads south of Delaware Water Gap through the remote Delaware Valley are narrow and poorly paved. You'll cross the Delaware River for the final time in Lambertville, New Jersey, which is near Trenton. The route continues west from Lambertville into Conshohocken. The New York Spur traverses rural countryside until it reaches the suburbs of eastern New Jersey where you'll encounter urban riding conditions. Click on enlargement for detail.

These maps are excellent for their directions. A few of the insert maps were a little confusing due to the scale of the maps,which I understand the difficulty to make every detail as clear as possible. The only advice I have to offer are the lodging listings, which due to the economy many places are no longer in business. I advise calling ahead to verify the status. Also the food locations are suspect for the same reasons. Over all the routes were great and try to keep you on the most scenic roads. I will diffinetly continue to use these maps in the future.
Atlantic Coast Sections 1 & 2
Michael Kleinrock on 9/7/11
I rode from Norristown, PA to Sanford, ME in late July. I used the ACA section 1 & 2 maps, but mostly as a backup. I diverted from the route for a more direct route in New Jersey and Connecticutt. I had an absolute blast on the tour. The maps are good, though I really wanted elevations indicated, and the entire NY section appeared to be following a winery route, which is hard to handle when biking. Too many motivational distractions. Thanks for a great organization and much appreciated. I'd recommend these maps to anyone considering a tour, even if they, like me, don't use the exact roads. That's all the more fun.
Beautiful hidden roads along the Delaware

Rode along the Delaware from Philadelphia to Port Jervis, NY. Gorgeous little roads along the river. Very happy with the maps and I plan to use them again in the future. As a frequent train rider, my only note is that if you intend to go to NYC and you plan to be anywhere north of Port Jervis, there are more convenient stations than biking all the way to Summit, NJ.
One of my favorites
Andrew Latham on 6/3/10
I rode basically this whole route, from Lambertville NJ to Windsor Lockes. There were several stretches I loved--the canal path along the Delaware river and the rail-trail in NY. The prettiest has to be Delaware Water Gap national park, but be forewarned there are virtually no services within the 30 miles or so of park, so bring in lots of food and drink with you.
Guess I wanted more
A customer from Philadelphia, PA on 3/31/10
Honestly, as a map, it's ok. I guess I expected more with the map. Given some time and trolling on message boards I could have come up with the route. Where's the useful information that's so heavily advertised. If sparse information on out of the way camping is all the map offers, I'm a little let down.
