Massachusetts is blessed with an impressive network of thousands of backroads, most of them paved but not heavily traveled. Beyond the built-up metropolitan areas, which compose a very small percentage of the state, the landscape is rural enough to give a cyclist a sense of remoteness and serenity, and yet the nearest town, village or grocery is never more than a few miles away. The terrain is refreshingly varied for such a relativity small state. This book is a guide to cycling in the portion of Massachusetts within a reasonable commuting distance of Boston, covering the area between the Cape Cod Canal and a north-south line just each of Worcester and Fitchburg. The region, along with along with the sections of Rhode Island and New Hampshire just over the state lines, offers ideal cycling. Each ride includes precise written directions, excellent route maps, safety tips, availability of food and facilities, vivid descriptions f points of interest, and level of difficulty, including mileage.
