Favorite Local Motorcycle Routes:  New York (Bear Mountain)

This time of year, NYC-area riders need no excuse to escape from the routine and head for the hills.  There's nothing better after a brutal winter than getting out and stretching the legs on a long spring ride.

And there is no better route than the rolling hills and scenic overlooks up and around Bear Mountain, NY.

Located on the west side of the Hudson River in Rockland and Orange counties, the roads around Bear Mountain State Park become a mecca for cyclists once the weather warms.
