You are right about the options being extremely limited. I ride up over the GWB and down the west side path a couple of times a week on the way to work (did it this morning, in fact) and ride up that way on Saturdays to get up into Palisades park,
How do you deal with flats while on a long ride like that?
Gatorskin hard-shells ?
or just carry extra tubes and co2 inflaters and a small tool kit?
The river road stretch is crap loaded with all sorts of road wash like glass and crap that cause flats.
I've never gotten a flat on River Road.
Yes, you can use fairly robust tires, and should always bring a spare tube, flat repair kit, etc on any ride more than, say, 30-60 minutes.
