I will be traveling from Maryland to White Plains, NY in late October for a conference and will have a couple of days available afterward to play. I'm trying to determine whether it would be worth riding my bike there, so that I could spend the weekend riding back to MD via an interesting route. I would appreciate any suggestions for areas and/or roads departing from White Plains that would be worth the trip.

I will get back to you. Yes, there are some great roads to the north and west.

You have plenty of time for a beautiful ride just north of White Plains.

Rt 22 North is really nice once you head north a little ways and continues to get nicer the further north you go. Lots of neat small towns, great views, plus it "opens up" further north.

West of the Hudson the entire Seven Lakes Drive area by Harriman State Park and Bear Mountain State Park area are terrific rides.

If you like, you could head up 22, then head west over the Hudson to Bear Mt., ride all through Harriman and the 7 Lakes area (it's really nice), then head north on 9W up to West Point for a visit. From there you can work back east and head further north on 22.

If time forces you to select, I'd definitely do the 7 Lakes Drive/Bear Mt. area. It's less than an hour from White Plains via a direct route.
