Two-lane blacktops follow the lakeshores, sometimes hugging the shorelines, sometimes drifting up into green, pillowy dairy lands. Traffic moves at a slower pace, and you may have to slow down for bikers or a hay wagon."

Whether your foray into the Finger Lakes is by car, routes-5-and-20-motorcycle-scenic-drivemotorcycle, or bicycle, you are guaranteed big landscape vistas and awesome lake views, as well as lots of Americana along the way. We've even nicknamed Routes 5 and 20 "the authentic American Road."
