Route 6? You can't bike on thathow short does it have to be to be creative? Google Maps is giving me route 6 to 283 to Mine road down to 9w. That is 16 mile and lots O climbing.
Is it ok to go the other way? From Bear to Harriman? I've always just assumed both ways were illegal.
It might be tough to establish that the lack of a direct link causes harm or significant inconvenience to cyclists. There hundreds of miles of comparable roads in the area available for cycling.If there is no legal way, and they're handing out tickets, someone needs to sue the state. There should be a cross bridge like there is for the AT on the Thruway.
Technically Seven Lakes Drive continues past the circle and into Bear Mountain, seems like a lawyer should be able to find some support there.
Wonder how hikers do it?BTW I am not sure if this has already been stated, but just in case.
There is a legal way to get from Bear to Herriman, but it's a one way bridge so you can't link Herriman to Bear (well without getting on the PIP for like 50 feet)
