I'm not a serious motorcyclist. My bike isn’t anything to brag about: It’s a low-to-the-ground, low-maintenance Honda Rebel. But it is perfect for me, and I really do love riding. I love the wind, the open skies, the feeling of escape. I love small roads where I can get lost for hours at a time. You’ll never see me on an interstate. As a professional photographer, I’m always looking for beautiful vistas or interesting scenes to capture. So, here are four of my favorite local motorcycle routes. Whether you check them out in the early days of summer or the golden hours of fall, you can experience the best of the Hudson Valley's scenic views. Happy riding.
