This great escape from New York City begins with a car- free voyage high above the Hudson River along the George Washington Bridge, where superb views extend far north and south. The ride continues in New Jersey on the other side, where a riverside road undulates high and low along the steep cliffs of the Palisades. You can rest at a riverfront picnic spot mid- journey before scaling the Palisades from bottom to top and returning to the George Washington Bridge via Bike Route 9.
