I ride the CT shore - from the Bridgeport or New London ferry terminals - all the time up to Mystic, Westerly, Narragansett, etc. However. with the limited amount of time I have these days, and with my wife (a casual rider, at best) wanting to come along on some trips, it'd be great to be able to train up to Boston proper and ride the Charles River or another bikeway. Same for Washington, DC.
