    I don't road ride. I would rather hit a tree than be hit by a car.
    Bear Notch Rd is a nice climb. Not too steep, but still a decent workout. Crawford Notch on the other hand... Ouch!

    Other nice rides are the climb up Sugar Hill near Franconia Notch (beautiful roads, no cars) and a loop around Martha's Vineyard (50 miles, mostly flat, bikes allowed on the ferry for short money).

    I know what you mean about being hit by a car. With traffic greatly increasing near my place, I've given up road riding after I found I couldn't relax because I was trying to stay so focused and aware of the passing traffic. I'd come home more tense and wound up than when I left. And people on motorcycles think they get it bad, I swear people actually AIM for you when you're on a bicycle.

    It will be safer when motorists drive at the speed limit (which is the maximum & not the median) posted and actually slow down while passing a bicyclist or pedestrian...however I suppose that's too much courtesy to expect...

    Half of what I say is meaningless, but I say it so that the other half may reach you.
