Hi everyone,

I'm looking into a trip through your north eastern tip. Thinking of passing through New York State, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine on my way to the East Coast of Canada.

Here's my plan so far:
Cross into NY north of lake ontario, go to, and maybe camp around the adirondacks, then get to New Brunswick through Maine.


So, my questions:

Can you suggest any must see places (historical or otherwise) along the way?
Any local suggestions on nice places to stay in the adirondacks or between there and the coast?
Roads (duh!) worth riding? I saw lots of awesome looking roads on the map.

Any other advice

This is probably a June trip.

Thanks!

Depending on when you do it, I can possibly play tour guide for a little bit.

Northern Vermont: Route 108 through Stowe/Smuggs gap. Wickid twisties & unparalleled views around Mt. Mansfield but watch yer *ss. Also Lincoln Road off of Bristol/Rt 116, uphill twisties along a small river, one of my personal favorites. Montpelier and Burlington (stay at the GGT Tibet Inn - Cheap!) are great towns to visit. Stop by Church street and the waterfront in Burlington. Avoid St. Albans. Route 105 through the very top of VT to Newport is worth a ride.

Northern New Hampshire: 93 through Franconia notch State Park. The beauty of this one is you are on a wide highway. Make sure u fuel up.

Maine: Out of your way, but route 1 is a great stretch. Start in Newburyport, MA and work your way north to Portland, or the other way around. Plenty of camping. Be sure to stop at Breaking New Grounds in Portsmouth, NH - half of the bikers in NH are there at any one time sipping lattes- u can chat them up for suggestions. Do some surfing in York Maine http://www.liquiddreamssurf.com/ Downeast (upsate Maine) on Route 1 only keeps getting better. BRING extra gas if you attempt 95 south of New Brunswick.

Montreal: I'm not sure about riding, but there plenty of 'other' things to do there haha

Have a good time. You can't go wrong any way you go, especially through Vermont.

Thanks for all the tips!

I've been to montreal on more than a couple occassions. As much as I like Montreal and Quebec city, the government in la belle provence, has enacted some extreme laws targeting motorbikes. As a result, I am avoiding the province altogether.

I was thinking of taking in the north end of the adirondacks on the way east, and then the south side on the way back (or vice versa).

In addition to the suggestions already made, you definately wanna check out Tracy Rd off RT9, and Ensign Pond Rd... here:

Many of us from Montreal make a day trip with the sole purpose of riding these 2 roads. Wonderful sweepers and just great fun to ride.
Nah, nobody should ride there, especially bikes;)
