Hi there, I'm new here. My goal for the end of this summer/early fall is to ride the Kancamagus Highway in NH. I'd be setting off from the Portland, ME area. I'm pretty confident I can manage the camping needs of the trip without needing too much advice, but this will be the most challenging, hilliest ride I've done yet. I've researched the route, so I'm pretty confident there, too. My questions:
Has anyone ridden the Kancamagus? Is it fun? Safe? Where/which direction would you recommend starting from? How bad are the hills? I've been sitting on my duffer all winter, how much training might I need (when will I know I'm ready)? Do you recommend I ride with someone?
Thanks in advance.
