Bike Maps
Unfortunately, there is no comprehensive bike map of the Hudson Valley.  But there are good (and not so good) maps available for different portions of the Hudson Valley region and for individual bike paths and bike routes. 

Overview Maps from NYS DOT
The Hudson Valley area is made up of two New York State Department of Transportation regions:  Region 8 (Hudson Valley/Catskill) and Region 1 (Capital District).  Both regions have overview maps which are useful to get a sense of what existing and proposed routes are out there.  Please note, however, that in many cases "proposed" routes may not be roads suitable for riding right now.  But they are proposed for bicycle improvements at a later date. 

Region 8 (Westchester, Rockland, Putnam, Orange, Dutchess, Ulster and Columbia Counties)

This is an undated, print map that provides an overview of bicycle facilities (both existing and proposed) in all of the Region 8 counties.

Region 1 (Greene, Albany, Rensselaer, Saratoga, Washington, Warren and other counties north and west)
Region 1 does not have a bike map.  However, the Capital District Transportation Committee, which is a regional Metropolitan Planning Organization that operates within Region 1 boundaries has 2 bicycle maps available for download.   Click here to find these maps.

State Bicycle Routes
New York State DOT has designated several on-street bicycle routes in the Hudson Valley.  Only State Bike Routes 5, 9 and 17 have maps. These maps date back to the early 2000's and are not available for download on the NYS DOT website.  However, you can find out more about these bike routes on the NYSOT website by clicking this link . You can also use the NYSDOT "Bicycling in New York" interactive map by clicking this link.
