    This isn't New Hampshire, but N.H. is overrated. You would prefer the Berkshires in W. Mass. IMHO. Try the description of this company's tour on for size. Can't vouch for them in particular but I'm...

    It should be an interesting ride. My only experience with it was a small section of gravel rail trail in the Scarborough Maine/Old Orchard Beach area. I suspect the whole route is pretty much a...

  6. Smart Wheel anyone? You can help it out on Kickstarter.

    I looked to see if I was just repeating someone else's post on the subject. I couldn't find that I was. Sorry if so. If not, see here: Smart Wheel will revolutionize commuter cycling.

    With the promised reopening of the Portland/Yarmouth ferry route I am eyeing a two-week ride in N.S. in July/Aug. Maybe we'll see one another.

    I've had Google lead me down some pretty terrible "roads" but that one takes the cake. I haven't given up on Google yet just because I like to be surprised, but I have developed a pretty hefty...

    I did the trail last summer so this isn't the latest info but there are plenty of places where you have to leave the original canal path and follow either city roads or bike route 5. If you use...

    +1 on Schwalbe. I use an older Marathon that takes 100 psi and have been happy with that. Not as expensive as the Supreme. The Green Guard would be the closest to that now. I'm going to replace them...

    What's wrong with camping with the homeless? I was invited to share the campsite of one guy in Keene, NH and was very grateful for the invitation. I left him with a 20 spot the next morning. I...

    How come no one has mentioned cemeteries? Oops, I just saw "church yards" were mentioned. Same thing. I usually find myself in at least one during my summer ride.

    O.K. I was back for a second year. The bike share wasn't going to work. They lengthened our work day by a half hour and that, together with the fact that I'd gone in every direction of the compass...

    I used Google to map my route for a 1000 mile ride last summer. It recommended I cross into Canada by way of a walk-way on top of a lock near Iroquois. Fortunately you can check such things in the...
