Re: rhinebeck to seattle
Here's how I'd start the trip...
Ever ride 44/55 from Highland to Kerhonkson? I often did when I lived in the area (Orange/Ulster border). I preferred crossing the Kingston-Rhinecliff bridge (avoiding Poughkeepsie), down 9W to 44/55 west. Better IMO than 299 through New Paltz. From Kerhonkson, 209 south to either 55 or 52. West on to Liberty, where you pick up 17 (future I86). West on 17 towards Binghamton. I'd be sure to stop at the Roscoe Diner in Roscoe, NY. Good food, good desserts.
Gee....wish I could ride that piece with you. Nice mix of hills/flat, Numerous places to catch some great scenic views. Only a 3-4 hour segment, but I enjoyed it.
