Route suggestion?

All,

My good friend and I are planning a sweet multi-day ride in early summer. Currently, our plan is to:

Spend 3-5 days on the bikes

Hit as many cool coastal New England towns as possible

Not get run over on the side of US-1

Chase pretty girls in bikinis

Keep the mileage somewhere around 150-200.

We initially through New London, CT to Cape Cod, MA, but after some initial research we learned the roads suck and Rhode Island sucks. Now we are thinking Boston, MA to Portland, ME. Seems reasonable.

We are, however, open to other suggestions, routes, places to see, great roads/beaches/towns. Salem, MA seems cool and there are lots of local roads along the coast between Boston, MA and Portland, ME, as well as Amtrak to bring us back to BOS.

Input? Thanks

Lou

I live in Boston and am sorta familiar with some of the areas you're talking about.

I've found most of my attempts to do coastal rides near Boston kind of disappointing. The road only hugs the water in a few places. Most of the time you've got scrubby forest between you and the beach, so you're barely aware you're near the coast. Or you're in a heavily developed area with lots of fast-moving cage traffic.

I'd suggest starting someplace further north like Salem or Newburyport. (Both are reachable via commuter rail from downtown Boston.)

Atlantic Coast Route goes somewhere near there: http://www.adventurecycling.org/rout...anticcoast.cfm


My experience with the ACA maps and routes has been positive. I'd go out of my way to follow one of their routes rather than make my own.

Fuck You, You Fucking Fargo Fucks

I ordered a Fargo frame last night.

There was gin involved. As well as a realization that other than the frame, fork, and headset, I already had all the parts I'd need for a decent build sitting around, sad and unused.

But mainly it's your fault, Javarilla.

Note to self: Make sure gin and credit card are not accessible at the same time.

Thanks for the advice, but I'd rather make my own route or take others' suggestions than pay $15 for a map that might go where I want it to... hey, I'm from NY. I can't help it...

Thanks

Lou

Using the route search here has worked for me. Pick "find a ride".

This is how I built my race bike. I woke up to 6 different confirmation emails. It's a hell of a bike, though!

Not something that happens everyday

going from full sprint to this in rush hour traffic was quite a ride.

P.Diddy wil know what to do.
