DC to Toronto area route suggestions? - April 10, 2017, 08:51 PM

Does any of you guys have suggestions for a route from DC to Toronto area?

It can be done in one day or 2 days, no preference in terms of the timings.

I have looked at 15 and 219, as well as some interstate options. Looking for a scenic one though

On the way back, I'll be mostly slabbing so any straight routes would be preferred.

Thanks for any of your inputs and help.

I took I-70 to I-76 and then 219 all the way up to Buffalo. Bonus: You'll pass by the Zippo Factory.

I did it early on this Summer, it can def be done on a day on a comfy bike. I did it in such fashion and did 90% backroads by simply telling Google Maps to avoid highways. Wouldn't say it was the best ride in the world, but it was scenic. Once I got into CA I jumped on highway for the last stint.
