    NY to PA day/overnight ride

    Hey all:

    I am going to be heading to PA this coming Sat (May 28) for a day trip into PA and an overnight stay, then a ride back to Rochester.

    I was thinking about the Central PA area. Any suggestions on a ride that would end up in the Mansfield, Williamsport, Brockway, and Bradford areas?

    I was thinking a nice ride, maybe some scenic runs, stop somewhere nice for dinner, a small town, somewhere to enjoy a good meal and a glass of wine, rest in a comfy place, get up the next day, get a nice breakfast, and then a nice ride back into NY..


    Thoughts?

    White deer Motel, just S of Williamsport is my home base when I travel there, clean mom and pop. Best meal is 10 miles away at Orlandos, in Muncy PA, GREAT food!

    Another favorite, but a pub atmosphere is the Bull Frog Brewery in Williamsport.

    Next question, how twisty do you like it? Small roads? I know every road N of 80, west of 81, east of Dubois pretty well.

    Thanks! I'll look it up....

    As for roads, Not highway or two lane like some of 15/11 still is but maybe a step down from that? A nice ride that is scenic but not where you have to focus on the road 100% of the time....

    Does that help?

    if you like, email me and I can pick your brain more....

    What about a bit further South? I'd like to make a bit of a loop somewhere and stop a little more than halfway.....

    let me mark up a map, I go for the tight and twisty stuff, but there is lots of more meandering roads and some great views.

    I would suggest staying someplace in Wellsboro. http://travel.yahoo.com/p-travelguid...ro_vacations-i
    There many good roads off rt 6 no matter east or west.
    Check for the hotels ahead. The gas business has many places booked. Watch out for those big trucks

    If you go to the Rally forum I've posted a slew of great routes in both Garmin and Google form.

    Hey all.....sorry I have not been on here a lot. Between work and other things, my Forum time is usually limited...LOL

    Anyway, a couple months ago, I stayed in Wellsboro. GREAT town! Stayed at the Penn Wells, rode around town, did a couple loops....One was West out of Wellsboro to Galeton, South on 144, East on 44, hit 414 North to 287 and back into Wellsboro. Very nice ride! Great hills and nice roads....The second day, we went to the PA Grand Canyon and hiked for a couple hours. Then, decided to zip up to Rt 6 and go to Coudersport. Nice run there too!. Came back to Wellsboro, grabbed a movie, ate at some very nice places, and just relaxed.....

    Looking to plan a ride on Labor Day weekend now.........just gotta pick a place to go......

    How about the Fingerlakes bmw rally in Watkins Glenn? I have been going there for about 4 years now and my uncle and friends for 25+ and it is a great time.
