South of the thruway when there is snow is some of the best riding in NY.

i'll second that. i always make a point of it when snow hits. can go north later. i like just north of the thruway too. we sometimes start in sharon springs and ride to ilion, across the thruway, up to salisbury or barneveld for lunch. back around through st johnsville , across the thruway , and back. when it's cold we cross the mohawk and go down the bike path to cross the thruway.

I keep my sled at the in-laws during the winter in Morrisville. I went to school out in Cobleskill and would like to ride out that direction more. Iíve heard about the riding there and just up past Little Falls. Unfortunately with the low snow conditions in the past few years I havenít ventured out there. The Hill is good when itís low snow everywhere else but the mix of farm fields, hills and the views around the thruway area and south is great.

Canoe was open as of about 10d ago (one of my fishing buddies had a burger) ... that's all I know about it 'til we get some snow and I can ride down there and check it out in person.

If youre based south of me, Cortland area, and looking for a high-mile ride ... an option is to head due north, up through Nelson/Fenner/Stota. Those trail conditions are very weather dependent. Sometimes a little janky, sometimes really awesome, but bottom line the clubs seem to emphasize keeping their corridor trails passable once there's snow. If you can get to Canastota you can get to almost anywhere. Run the length of Oneida Lake to West Monroe and then up toward Pulaski/Sandy Creek area; cross the lake and use Taberg's trails to Camden and points north; run east through Rome and onto the Hill, or better yet hang a right toward Forestport and points east; of course all is dependent on snow cover and ice safety but there are good miles to be had most years.

i have been to pulaski from the hill. huge water holes at that point. over the mexico way , and most everything north. we like to park in salisbury when we ride north. from there we go west to lee center, up to west lyden, back across to boonville, forestport, hinkley, and back. one of the best parts of that ride is lunch at gone coastal. gooood stuff!
