9781884313271: Motorcycle Journeys Through New England: 4th Edition

This all-new fourth edition of the most popular motorcycle touring guide to New England offers more suggested routes than ever, along with fully updated listings of motorcycle-friendly lodgings and great out-of-the-way restaurants. Motojournalist Ken Aiken leads two-wheeled travelers through twisty mountain passes and beautiful valley backroads to scenic, intriguing destinations in six key regions: the rugged Maine coast, the high notches of New Hampshire's White Mountains, the lush gaps of the Green Mountains of Vermont, the Lake Champlain region between upstate New York and Vermont, the rolling Berkshire hills of Massachusetts, and the coastal delights of Rhode Island and Connecticut. Aiken covers well-known motorcycle-touring roads like Vermont's Route 100, the Mohawk Trail, and the Kancamagus Highway, but his inclusion of little known regional roads frequented by local riders sets this guide apart from others. Altogether, Aiken has carefully plotted 28 trips for motorcyclists, most of them taking one day to complete. Multi-day tours can easily be created by linking adjacent trips. Each trip includes a detailed map and specific route directions. The trips are designed to accommodate various riding styles and audiences, from sightseeing two-up travelers to sport riders bending the curves.

New Hampshire: the Bronson Hills, Seacoast region, Lake Winnipesaukee, the White Mountains, Coos County

About the Author:

Rannie Gillis is a seasoned motorcycle traveler who lives in Nova Scotia and has written several popular travel books about Cape Breton Island and Labrador. He grew up in North Sydney and still lives in the family homestead about two miles from the Cabot Trail within sight of the ferry landing to and from Newfoundland. During good weather, he typically rides the entire Cabot Trail about twice a week! A colorful raconteur and historian, he is the perfect guide to help other riders planning a trip to Atlantic Canada.

Review:

"I got back from a ten-day trip to New England and found a copy of Ken Aiken's book in the mail.  Dang!  I wish I had brought it with me. . . . Ken is a good writer, and the 350 pages are a pleasure to read.  And the pictures are a delight.  I do recommend having it in your tankbag should you ever go to New England.  And if you haven't ever planned on going Down East, and you read this book, you might change your mind." - RiderMagazine.com

"You remember that old television commercial, Don’t leave home without it. Well, if you’re heading to New England, this is the book you should make sure you do the same with. There are maps for the various routes with turn by turn directions but the real value of the book comes from the insider information that Ken provides. Each ride is dissected and examined to give you the historical background of the area you’re riding through as well as tips on how to avoid the traffic congestion and where you’ll find great photo ops." - Go For a Ride Magazine
