Its not a long distance by any means (60 miles) but its a route Ive never traveled. I tried Mapquest but cant get it.
Is there any places on the net I can find to help plan this route? In the car, its all interstate, I want to stay near the interstate of possible.

this is probably more appropriate in the touring forum, but just to help you out -- normally I use a combination of bike maps (in Massachusetts there's a company (http://bikemaps.com/) that publishes a pretty useful trio of maps that covers the entire state) and GMap Pedometer (http://www.gmap-pedometer.com) to chart out routes. Your local bike shop might have similar maps on its shelves.

Using MapQuest, they have an option to Avoid Highways under 'Advanced Options'.
That is a great way to start, then plot it out on gmap.
