Good bike shops in SE New England

Hello....I'm just getting into the hobby and started planning my first tour for next year (RI to D.C.) but I am having a problem finding a knowledgeable shop for touring.....most cover mountain or racing bikes, not much about touring....can anyone tell me of any touring knowledgeable shops in eastern CT, RI, or southeastern MA?....thanks in advance

Post this in the regional forum, since folks anywhere may know about touring, but locals are more likely to know the right go to guys in their back yard.

On the bright side, there are some great shops in the areas you're asking about, and I'm sure you'll get too many leads to choose from.
