    Greetings from New Hampshire

    I'm new to the site and just getting back into riding after 15+ years away from the sport. I just bought a Trek 7500 hybrid and I am looking forward to getting back into shape. I should have the bike Thursday and get some riding in on Saturday. I'm open to any advice that members may have regarding my bike set up and a measured approach to getting back in shape.

    Hi learnmore, welcome to the BF
    I spent a week last fall at North Conway and completely enjoyed it. Stayed in a timeshare at Crown Ridge Resort. I did some wonderful cycling, the best trip being accross the Kancamagus to Lincoln and back. Quite a challenge for someone who comes from flat country. Also cycled from North Conway to the Mt. Washington auto route and another day to the Cog Railroad. I did the route down what I think is called River Road on the west side of the river to the covered bridge, then into Conway and then back to the resort on the east side of the river. It was the flatest riding I could find in that area.
    You truly live in a beautiful place. The tax free shopping at the outlet Pearl Izumi store was a bonus that I found when I got there.
    Happy cycling!

    Cyberpep, you certainly chose some beautiful routes to ride. The Kanc. is fantastic although I am a long way away from being fit enough to do that ride. Glad you enjoyed our great state!

    Welcome to the forum. I live in MA but I ride up in your area occasionally. Love doing the Kancamagus Highway, and I'll combine that with Bear Notch Rd. to make a loop ride. Enjoy the new bike, maybe I'll see you on the roads!!

    Hi Suzie,
    I ride in MA as well. I work in the West Bridgewater area so I am down in MA Mon-Wed. and try to ride at night after work. Any suggestions on good rides in the area?

    Hmmm, that's kind of out of my area. I'm in the north central section, west of Fitchburg. I do a lot of my riding around Mt Wachusett and westward from there, staying north of Worcester. The roads are decent and the traffic is minimal compared to riding around the I-495 belt. Lots of nice routes around the Quabbin Reservoir!
