Driving between NYC and North Eastern (seacoast) MA Many times throughout the year. Always look forward to stopping for a bike ride, makes the driving more enjoyable / bearable.
Been riding all over CT but I would like to find a nice loop, preferably off Interstate 84 with adjustable mileage: Between 20 to 40 to 60 miles. Needs are: some hills, rural, very low traffic, place to park for free, where the car is safe and legally parked for hours on end.
Been often on the rail trail North of New Haven which is nice enough but a little too flat... no hills!
Also been in North Western CT but thats not on the way and Greenwich area which is very densely packed and the roads have no shoulders but it can be good too.
