NY: Hudson Valley-Mario Cuomo Bridge

The former Tappan Zee Bridge had been identified as one of the more dangerous bridges to cross due to its wear and tear. Many years later the new Mario Cuomo Bridge was constructed.

It includes a walkway and bike way. Two distinct dedicated paths for walkers and bikers connecting the wonderful towns of Tarrytown/Sleepy Hollow and Nyack. There is also free path parking on either side of the bridge.

Each of the towns have lovely vantage points from which to view the Hudson River and relax, stroll, bike ride and grab a bite.

With the 2020 pandemic, my preference is to ride the bridge which does require masks to cross – biking or walking.

There are several areas on the bridge to pause with clever structures and areas to sit and take in the views of the mountains, lighthouse, Hudson River and homes lining it.

Marked on the path is the county line between Westchester and Rockland County. A cute place for a shot.

Each of the rides I have done I have rode to The town of Nyack – although there are other options. Nyack Main Street is lined with many restaurants from which to choose. Not far from Main Street is a lovely skateboard park on the water with a small pier with great views of the bridge.

The ride is fun either during the day or at sunset. Sunset of course is awesome as the sky lights up one set of colors and the bridge another. Just remember to stop and turnaround and you can catch the colors!
