Thanks for the offer. Rte 110 was pretty nice as I recall, with some river views. This has been my first season exploring that far north. Most of my weekend rides from Kenmore Square for years have been south, west, or along the North Shore.
That ride on 110 was an attempted solo century up north on 28 to Methuen, to Lowell via 110, North Chelmsford, down to 27 and to Rte 20 back to Boston. I only made 82 miles due to time limitations, getting lost in Lawrence, two broken spokes and a flat tire.
