    Route 88 to Horseneck Beach in Mass

    I'm planning to go to Massachusetts in August and I'd like to ride out to Horseneck Beach. However, I've read that the road out there, Route 88, has signs prohibiting bicycles -- or did at one time. Does anyone know if that is still the case?

    Thanks.

    I don't know that it has signs prohibiting bicycles, but it is in any case a very straight, narrow, very high-speed road. We're talking a two-lane road with a divider on which drivers don't hesitate to drive at 70 mph. I don't know the area well enough to tell you about a back way down to Horseneck beach (I actually live on the New Hampshire border when I'm not in Amherst!), but I would recommend an alternate route if you possibly find one, whether bicycles are allowed or not.
