10 great places to blaze a (bike) trail of good food [USAToday]


Orange County, NY Tourism
Cyclists in the Hudson Valley region can travel rural paths and visit small towns like Warwick, N.Y.
After a day of cycling, the food always tastes better, saysDavid Howard , executive editor of Bicycling magazine. "Riding burns up to 800 calories an hour, so you've got a calorie deficit to make up." With more locally sourced restaurants and markets, riders have some great options for eating on the road. Fall is a perfect time to explore, says Howard, who shares some favorite areas with Larry Bleiberg  for USA TODAY.
Hudson Valley, N.Y. 
With several bridges spanning the Hudson River, it's easy to map bike loop tours through the scenic upstate valley. "You can ride right alongside the Hudson River and get these amazing sweeping views," Howard says. Work up an appetite on the hills and stop to eat at St. Andrew's Café at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park and the Rhinebeck Farmers Market. 800-232-4782; travelhudsonvalley.org
