Aha, excellent find! I knew someone would know (not sure why I didn't just search). Those are good roads to ride indeed.

Had a pretty fun ride yesterday morning, went out to ride some trails in the Assabet River NWR but while scouting the map noticed that the Assabet River Rail Trail wasn't well-mapped on Openstreetmap. Ended up biking from Acton all the way to Marlborough and back (plus a loop in Assabet River NWR) for a much longer than anticipated 36 miler. A very diverse ride and I made a solid contribution to the map in the end: https://cycling.waymarkedtrails.org/....4244!-71.4463 or https://www.openstreetmap.org/relati....4043/-71.5118

The trail in Acton is very new, they didn't even finish the Maple St. parking lot yet. It has a large break in the middle and a portion of it is on dirt. The fact that it's accessible by commuter rail is pretty cool (and vice versa, though Acton's density probably won't result in as much cyclist-to-T usage as it does at Alewife)..
