This blog recounts rides, pictures of bikes that I notice (and have time to snap a picture of), and occasionally comments about cycling. It is focuses on the Northeast US but I have also ridden in Washington state, Colorado, New Mexico, Wisconsin, Virginia, California, and four of Canada's Maritime provinces.
Riding north and west of Concord with Bobby & Hillary
This was my first long ride last season (2008) and we did it somewhat quickly. I usually start this ride from Arlington, making it nearly 60 miles and is a very nice route at that distance. The ride is best cutting through Great Brook Farm Park, south of Littleton looking at the hills of Harvard to the west, and the always enjoyable ess curves of Strawberry Hill Road. There are places to pick up food (at least a bar and fluids) in South Chelmsford, South Acton (Central St and MA 111), and in Concord (I'm a fan of the Main Street Grill).
