Hello! I was planning to bike from Albany to Buffalo because that works better with my travel plans, but I've read about westerly winds being worse this way. Is that the case? Does it make much of a difference? I'm planning to ride the first week in October. I could rearrange my trip if that is advisable, so I'm curious!

Hi, I was also planning to bike the same week starting monday 10/5. The winds usually do go west to east so if you start at albany if there are any winds they would be in your face as opposed to your back when biking buffalo to albany. I would start in buffalo if its possible.
