Yes, we are hoping to spend some time biking on all of our stops. Our vacation is most of August to visit lots of family out on the east coast, so we've got lots of time.

I know my partner found some rides she wanted to do in Albany when she was researching online, but if you have suggestions of your favorites, please do share!

Thanks!

Thanks so much! I will check out those sites ... not sure why we couldn't find them when we searched.

I use mapmyrun.com and knew about mapmyride.com but hadn't even thought of looking in other areas for routes. Great suggestion - thanks!

We're going to be primarily in Philadelphia, PA, Williamsburg, VA, and the Albany, NY area in addition to northern NJ. I will try to remember to post here about any good rides we have while we're out there!

Can't help you with New Jersey, but your trip sounds interesting. I'd love to know what states you are visiting, and what trails you found there. I live on the East Coast, and some of your findings might turn into interesting minivacations for me!

Hello! My family will be spending August vacationing in various states on the east coast and we're looking for nice bike rides on our different stops. We're having trouble finding much in northern New Jersey. We'll be staying in Pompton Lakes, which is in Passaic County, near Wayne, and are willing to drive our bikes a bit to get to something worth biking in that area.

If you're from there or have been biking there, please let me know suggestions - either here or via SparkMail.

Thanks in advance!
