I plan to bicycle across New York State. Does the state maintain any designated state bicycle routes?
The New York State Department of Transportation maintains three signed, on-road, long distance, designated state bicycle routes; they are State Bicycle Route (SBR) 5, SBR 9 and SBR 17. SBR 5 extends for 365 miles, between the City of Niagara Falls and the Massachusetts State Line. SBR 9 extends 345 miles between New York City and the City of Montreal. SBR 17 extends 435 miles between the Village of Westfield, which is northwest of the City of Jamestown, to the City of Newburgh.
Specific information and maps for all three of these State Bicycle Routes may be obtained at no charge from the New York State Department of Transportation’s Statewide Bicycle and Pedestrian Program.
