Sorry, Pete, yesterday was the day of the ride, so, without feedback on 32, we took the more reliable 32A (what a GORGEOUS cycling road) and then, to include enough mileage as to amount to a true 100k (the most direct routes around the Quabbin are just under that) we turned west on Greenwich Rd out of Hardwick, and kept following it all the way down to the boat dock on the Quabbin in Hardwick. (Good thing my friend was on skinny tires, b/c I was all for continuing north along the newly-discovered network of opened roads that skim the edge of the water down there.) Then we doubled back and took Greenwich Rd. South, hooked west onto Osborne->Old Poor Farm Rd. A great, and very, very steep detour overall, which substituted for Barre. It was a perfect day, except for absurd knee pain about 50% of the ride.
You ride in Western MA much?
