    Need info on Hudson/ NY ride

    I'm looking for some info on riding the Hudson to the Statue of Liberty. I live in MA so I would probably launch somewhere around Ossining, NY and ride down the Hudson. Basically I am looking for tips from others who have done this ride before. Anything I need to watch out for in the river, places to launch, places to dock/ get fuel and food, etc.

    I'm in the Albany area and on the Hudson I have a friend that delaminated his 2006 RXP from a car tire floating in the river (rim and all). He's actually on the forum as mcrowley. Watch out for sticks, branches, and if you pay attention to the news - possibly floating bodies.

    steach loves the hudson. i'm sure he'll post up when he reads this.

    i've been on the hudson twice and i experienced two totally different water conditions. you should be prepared for just about anything out there.

    Does it really get that rough? I was hoping for a smooth 70 mile ride

    Well, 4-6' rollers are good for wavejumping
