    Route advice?

    Hey all,

    Just looking for a little route advice. I'm doing a little mini-tour this weekend, riding from Cambridge, MA up to a cabin in NH.

    The first part of my trip is set - to Newburyport tomorrow night. The longer part of the ride, from Newburyport up to East Wakefield, NH is out of my knowledge of local roads. Anyone have advice on this route? The seacoast part looks great, but once I get past Portsmouth, it looks like a lot of time spent on a highway. Any Portsmouth-area people know of any better routes Northward?

    West Newbury, MA to Thoreau Trail, Wakefield, NH 03830 - Google Maps

    Thanks!

    Jeremy

    Used to do this in HS to a friend's camp. Go up through ME from Ports. 236, 202 109. Much less traffic.

    Once you take a shuttle in Portsmouth (the bridge that allowed biking is out till later this year I believe, The will shuttle you over to the other side (maine, I believe you can pick up rt 103, it will run into rt 1a for a short while, then shore road into Ogunquit, after that RT 1 is a little more bearable.
    Till the bridge went out, used to ride up that way several times a year from North of Boston. Bike up, meet the families for a day at the beach. nice riding.
