    Smooth as silk !

    Decided to do my lake route over the boarder in Rindge NH. So I spent time on rte. 119 and rte. 202 in New Hampshire. So almost 2/3 of my ride was on roads that make riding less jarring than most of the Massachusetts roads I ride on.

    I've never hit a green light at Walmart like that.

    You probably know this already but if you bang a right on Forristall then right on Elmwood it's much nicer than going by Lake Monomomac to get to Winchendon.

    Once and a while luck is on my side and I get a green light. I wanted to check out a couple houses that were for sale on the lake so I took the scenic route.


    How is it we haven't crossed paths on the road or have we ? you seem to ride a lot of the same areas I do.

    I know. I'd recognize you from these videos so I've been on the look-out will definitely chase you down to say hello if spotted on the road.

    I visit and ride around there maybe once a month on average. Always weekends.

    I don't go up that way very often and haven't been on that part of 202, though I've been up to Fitzwilliam on rte 12 and then down 119 all the way to Willard brook. I do like the East Monomomac road and have done that a few times before.Smooth as silk !-heatmap2.jpgSmooth as silk !-heatmap.jpg

    When you do track me down throw me a line and I'll be the anchor.

    I ride rte 12 into Keene, but sometimes cut onto rte. 119 to East Monomonack road also. I love 119 thru Willard Brook I always ride it coming out of Fitchburg and will be doing that route home on my half day Fridays real soon.
