CT: Fairfield County- Trumbull Trail

CT: New Haven County- Farmington Canal Greenway (Biking)

A great bike ride with “eats.” Start off at the lot by the entrance of the York Hill Campus of Quinnipiac University in Hamden. Ride a mostly flat five miles into New Haven passing the elegant architecture of the Yale campus along the way. While I chose to stop and get a great poke bowl,Continue reading “CT: New Haven County- Farmington Canal Greenway (Biking)”

CT: Farmington River Trail (Spring Biking)

A great first spring bike ride is the Farmington River Trail. Seems I rode the same trail just a month prior a year ago where I explained the ride (see below link) https://btographytravels.com/2021/03/24/ct-hartford-farmington-river-trail-biking/ So this year I didn’t take as many shots as I got a flat. But it didn’t stop me from noticing theContinue reading “CT: Farmington River Trail (Spring Biking)”

A little bit of Europe in CT walking along the Naugatuck Greenway on Housatonic River. The greenway starts in Derby and is planned for 44 miles to Torrington.

CT: Fairfield County- Fairfield to Bridgeport (Biking)

A beautiful just into Fall day in the mid 70s while still awaiting the fall colors, a bike ride along the now available beaches was a good way to go.

NY: Catskills Region- Tannersville

The little town of Tannersville was a big win for me! What a rush! First it has a 2.7 mile bike path. It is a dirt and gravel road so better for a hybrid versus road bike but fun nonetheless. You can then return on route 23 through the town to a lovely variety ofContinue reading “NY: Catskills Region- Tannersville”

NY-Hudson Valley- Nyack Beach State Park

Cliffs, river and a path with a view! Looked like a perfect place to discover on my bike.

The first mile to mile and a half was flat with a gravel/dirt path withContinue reading “NY-Hudson Valley- Nyack Beach State Park”

Parking lot full! One thing I love about biking is I can get most anywhere that may otherwise be hindered by traffic, full lots or outrageous prices! As part of my Newport Bike ride I stopped at this town beach, also referred as First Beach, and it’s snack bar. As a biker it was aContinue reading “RI-Newport: Easton’s Beach & Snack Bar”

The route well marked and app supported.Continue reading “NY: Hudson Valley Farm to Fork Fondo”
