It gets a little boring after that, as you're mostly riding the shoulder of Rt. 1, which becomes a highway past that point. However, in my opinion, Narragansett is worth a few dull miles.
Are you able to load your bike onto Metro North or Amtrak anywhere between the point due south of Hartford (I guess Guilford?) and Mystic? It's a pretty nice ride between these two places, so if you wanted to do it one way and then take the train back, that'd be a nice day out.
One of these days, you might also want to consider taking the New London Ferry over to Orient Point, Long Island with your bike. From there, there's a very nice ride across LI's two forks to the Hamptons. I'll give you the details if you're interested!
